My sister and her husband have revealed their hidden talents recently. My brother in law made me this planter out of some old decking .
I think its brilliant! I'm growing herbs in this one, but I'd like another next year to grow Strawberries in (hint hint as they now read my blog after years of ignoring it!)
My sis used to have a bit of a talent for painting, but has never done much with it, so I was overwhelmed when she produced this for me the other day - the photo does not do it justice!! It is of course our spot on the beach in the harbour in St Ives - all the family love it and cannot believe she has painted it!
And finally, my best girl is 21 today. She is on holiday in Santorini and sounds like she is loving every minute. I am sat in the garden toasting her with alcohol free champagne. My life changed beyond belief 21 years ago. I always tell her that she has taught me much more than I have ever taught her. We have our arguments, she has always challenged and pushed the boundaries, but we love each other very very much. She knows her own mind and I admire her very much for it. She recently learned that she had obtained a First in her degree - which was astounding - especially after a worrying first year. She has worked very hard and continues to do so. I want the very best things in life for her because she deserves them. Happy Birthday Becky Boo xxx
