The flowers I picked from the garden for the Gardening Club competition lasted for over two weeks, this is them looking fresh as a pin after a week. I did have to take out a couple of more delicate 'wild flowers' but the rest were brilliant.
Yesterday they went into the compost bin and have been replaced with my usual jug of mint, but this time I couldn't resist sneaking in a couple of sprigs of prettiness :-)
Something that didn't last as long was this jigsaw, I did it in just over a week which is a record for me. I just do a little bit here and a little bit there. I find it impossible to not be occupied at all but sitting still looking out jigsaw pieces is a bit too sedentary for me so it really was done in fits and starts.
Now I'm getting all ambitious and starting one we got from the car boot sale for 50p ... it has 1000 pieces, I wonder if it will ever be finished?
We need a stack of jigsaws for some something we are doing in the future and the only way to check if they are intact is to do them as we get them, so I do need to get on. I know if I'm faced with a huge pile to do all at once it simply won't happen!!
