My housemate Elly turned the grand old age of 20 this June and as she loves animals I made this cheeky little zebra postcard for her.

Well I'd been putting it off for quite a while but I've finally got round to giving my website a bit of a makeover. I spent the past week or so re-designing and re-writing it and it's now uploaded and ready for your viewing! Have a little look...

My mum is MINT at knitting! She always made me and my sister clothes when we were little and she's still knitting things for us now. At Christmas she made me a gorgeous pair of mittens and more recently my mum made me some 'socks' for my computer hardrives to keep them safe and cosey. I decided that more people needed to see her wondeful talents and the projects that she does sooo....I've made her a blog! I designed the blog header for her and now I await to see all the wonderful work displayed on there. I shall let you know when she publishes her first post!!!

The courgettes don't seem to be the only things springing to life! I noticed this morning that there are a few strawberries starting to grow on our strawberry plant. It's so amazing seeing all these wonderful plants grow and to think in a month or two's time we'll be eating the produce!
It's my Grandad's birthday tomorrow. Like every year, I have no idea how old he is and this year is no different! I made him a card using bits and pieces from my collage box and it sits on my grandparents bureau waiting to be opened. He's so sweet, the other day he was telling me all about his time in India as a soldier and how on leave, him and his friends went horse riding up into the mountains. I don't think we appreciate the awesomeness of our grandparents sometimes. The lives they led when they were our age and the people they met. Next time I see him he's going to show me all his photographs from India. I can't wait to go back in time with him. Happy Birthday Grandad... you're amazing as ever!

I finally got round to buying some buckets for my spuds and with some help from the mother, we've now planted our potatoes. It's just a matter of waiting now for the shoots to sprout! Jacket Potatoes here we come!

Well, it's only been a couple of weeks but my courgette plants are growing like crazy! It's so exciting! I know it'll be a while before I actually see the vegetables but I just can't get over how fast they've sprung up! Let's hope they continue like this and don't get eaten by naughty slugs or cheeky birds!
