Crikey it's been ages since I last blogged! Sorry to all who have dropped in to find nothing new and a big THANK YOU to all of you for leaving lovely comments for me - they are all very much appreciated!

We've had a very busy weekend, making the most of the beautiful BANK HOLIDAY (can you believe it?) weather. The Moonshines de-camped to Welsh Wales; the Senior Ms to wave a Ground Force-esque wand over Mr M's Mum's garden, which has become too much for her to manage over the last year or so, and the Junior Ms travelling onward to stay with their Cuz and provide much needed relief from an unexpected invasion of visiting Germans - don't ask - long story.

Thanks to the fab weather we've managed to weed, plant and mulch the front garden and one huge bed in the back garden - not bad going for three half days - even if I do say it myself. Needless to say I'm now pretty knackered and have aches and pains in places where aches and pains didn't aught to be.

Mr M, of course, has managed to pick up a rather fetching tan; whilst I spent most of the weekend with my backside uppermost (no comments about an unexpected eclipse on The Mumbles please!), bent double weeding, I now have an OH SO ATTRACTIVE lobster red stripe just above my waist band - I tell you there is no justice in this world, Mr M (and Moonshine Major for that matter) only have to look at a picture of the sun and they have a beautiful golden tan - whilst I have my winter look (blue/white) and summer look (red) - actually that's quite patriotic now I come to think about it... not attractive - but patriotic.

You'll be pleased to know that I managed to finish my Aaargh layout the night before we left, it's not much different from the two other versions but just in case you're interested...

Simple, low budget but quite effective - I hope.

I hope you and yours have had a happy Easter and have managed not to over indulge on the old hot cross buns (I'm not saying anything about Easter Eggs you'll notice, as in my world it is simply NOT POSSIBLE to over indulge in chocolate). I'm hoping to get some more scrapping done tomorrow, although I can put off THE WEEKLY SHOP no longer - or we will be having fresh air omelette (or possibly Easter Eggs) for dinner.


  1. You obviously had a working weekend so sorry that you are tanless. Hope you fit a shop in some time soon although I am sure that at least one of M+ and M- won't mind a chocolate egg diet.

  2. So glad to see you didn't waste the weather. It could have been summer you know it comes and goes so quickly. My dearly beloved spent part of the time in a pair of waders(it takes all sorts) sorting out the pond. I wish I'd have had the camera to hand he'd have paid me not to show anyone. Lucky you having Easter eggs I just look at them longingly and then in the mirror, at this point I reach for the stick of celery and look admiringly at the plant I was given. Ah well I have got to 'think slim' at least until meal time and then crack the bottle of wine and think there's always tomorrow.
    By the way your AArgh looks good- what is your next project?


Thanks for sharing your happy thoughts. Maisie Moonshine x
