April Review

How quickly the months seem to be flying past! I can't believe April has been and gone and what a busy month it was for us. We had lots of fun despite the weather being a bit cooler than normal and it was a month of getting on with things in the garden too.

Here are a few of my April highlights;

1. Dog Walking Holiday - Wye Valley, Wales
We had an amazing time in Wales; our first trip here and what a beautiful place it is. We loved the walks, the scenery, the food and having Barry by our side!

2. Spending time in the garden
Our back garden is really starting to take shape now; the shed is complete, I'm busy working on the flower beds to add a variety of colour to the garden and we're currently in the process of finishing off the tortoise's run and building a raised veg bed. I love pottering around the garden!

3. Bank Holiday Weekend in Norfolk
We had a lovely time visiting my family and running along the beach at Overstrand!

4. Spending time with family
It was lovely visiting Nan and Syd earlier in the month too and seeing my parents this last weekend

Simon, Syd, Jenna, Me, Jack and Nan and a huge roast dinner!

May is looking like another busy month; my best friend Jess gets married at the end of the month and there's lots of prep and fun to come before then. Jack and I also want to try and get lots more gardening and decorating done at home. We're hoping for a good month of sunshine as I'm sure everyone is, though I'm not looking forward to the high pollen levels that are just around the corner!

What plans do you have for May?

    1. Thanks Dawn, it was :-) I quite like doing these monthly reviews, half the time I forget everything we've done and it's nice to look back. Take care x

  2. It looks like you have a wonderful April. May sounds just as lovely for you too, are you one of the bridesmaids? xx

    1. I am chief bridesmaid Jo, very honoured and excited about that too! :-) xx
