And as a bonus I also get a mobile phone signal. Not having a signal below decks has been a real problem. I worried that Mum and Dad or the kids could not get hold of me in the case of an emergency. However, it does have its downside - now I cannot pretend that I didn't get calls when I deliberately wanted to ignore them (ie work!)
I won a lovely book from Jo at The Good Life. Jo grows vegetables and has the most beautiful garden. She puts in a lot of work and puts me to shame, but this book has given me the push to dedicate a bed to flowers. I love having vases of flowers around, especially when they smell sweet. But they are too expensive to buy willy nilly, so I have to wait for the odd occasion that Pete buys me some. Jo also documents her monthly visits to various gardens that are open to the public. Some of my friends over the pond might like to pay her a visit to see some lovely examples of English gardens. Jo can be found here.
