Poppy is still refusing to pop!!





Darcy has got bored of waiting for her...

and the chickens are running a sweepstake on it being a phantom pregnancy!

After what seems like a year - but in fact is only a week... we are finally getting to see the results of some of our efforts, at least I hope we are...

Curtains are back up but we are still sofaless

Pictures are on the walls

my lovely new birthday print is framed and on the wall

even the biggest magnolia fan can get a bit fed up of it- but at least everywhere is beginning to look neat and clean- here's one I started earlier- if by the way you have a teenage daughter who is begging for Happy Purple on her bedroom wall- don't do it! It is the worst colour ever to cover!!

I agree with you about the lawn it is very sad and brown but at least this rain we are getting today is good for something - the garden is now flat and boring and newly seeded where it needs to be- MrP assures me that prospective buyers will look at it and think "easy to maintain"- I on the other hand look at it and think where are all the plants??
the pond filter has been cleaned and new plants put in, which the fish are trying their hardest to destroy!!

all the decking is scrubbed clean and lovely pots of flowers and herbs set out- the gaps in the lavender hedge have been filled with new plants

We just now need someone to buy it...

You've done a brilliant job on it Jasmine, moving is one of the most stressful things in life, says me, just about to do it again!! Well done though, hugs K xxxx

It looks like the perfect show home now! You should sell it very quickly. I do wish Poppy would hurry up....how about a dose of castor oil? lol xxx

Well done. I'll cross my fingers and toes that it sells soon.

it looks clean & neat & any buyer can see how they can add their bits & bobs - so here's hoping !

Yes ! I do remember Pipkin - I loved Hartley Hare !

Hello! I love that.. Poppy is refusing to pop! Ha ha! Your house is coming along well, gosh I hate having to sell houses! Yes, I had a teenage daughter who had her bedroom in purple in our last house, and it is hard to paint over! Talking of walls, I love your birthday print which is hanging on your wall, looks wonderful! Re your question on my blog (and thank you for visiting me again!) we planted the fruit trees for selling the house, as we thought that it wouls be more attractive to viewers and give an orchardy feel to that part of the garden, as there are already two apple trees down there. They were on special offer too - £29.95 for three trees and get one free... so they will probably be dead next week! Have a wonderful weekend! Oh, and please carry on giving your 'long' comments ( They are never too long for me!) I love reading them! See, there, I have done one too! Suzie xxx
