February half term is always super busy, but in a personal way rather than a ‘oh-my-god-I-have-so-much-to-do-because-it’s-Christmas/D’s birthday.’ I plan to see friends, people come visit and I like to get the garden started. This year I have a HUGE garden and so the work is equally huge.
I’ve got loads of seeds and I started a few off with D on Saturday, so on our windowsill we have runner beans, three types of tomatoes, two types of chilli, a type of sweet pepper and two types of potatoes. Benn is slightly bemused at how he appears to suddenly be living in a crap greenhouse. I say he’ll be grateful once he has lots of fresh fruit and veg.
In terms of crafting, I’m planning lots of things- mainly by looking on the ASOS website, working out what I would like to wear and whether I could make it. Of course, now Sewing Bee is back on, my annual, ‘let’s try and learn to sew’ enthusiasm is back. I’m planning on finally making the pyjama bottoms from Tilly and the Buttons– I have some amazing fabric and I need to get cracking and stop making excuses.
Add to this, I’m seeing friends, my sister and her boyfriend (also called Ben) are visiting and it’s nearly spring- all in all, a good week.
