The White cottage that you see will be covered in wisteria in the next few weeks it is stunning when in full bloom. The old school building is now a Dr's surgery so we did'nt lose this lovely old building we recycled it. Desford is not a pretty pretty village but it does have a few nice buildings that have history. The one thing we are short of is shops we only have a couple of small one's so we have to travel into Leicester to find decent shopping. We do have a library which is most important and I would be lost without it and we also have a Post Office so I suppose we can manage. Well I am going to sit down and relax now it's my birthday tomorrow and my husband is taking the day off and we are meeting my daughter for lunch, Kate lives in Nottingham si I am looking forward to seeing her. Speak to you soon.

A walk around Desford

Hello everyone,
I went for a walk around Desford yesterday this is where I live in Leicestershire England. This is a picture of our lovely old church, it is mainly 13th century but the font is Norman.
When I walked past yesterday it was so pretty with all the spring flowers in bloom and the birds singing very peaceful.

Talented Lady

I found this on thevintage moth websight you should take a look quite a talented lady

A Trying Day

Good Morning everyone,

Andrews operation went well, he was a bit poorly when he came back from theatre but, he improved through the day. It was a long day but I took my quilting along with me and managed to get ten roses completed ready to applique to a new quilt.
I found Apple Tree Cottage on Diana's blog it is really special but I was a bit disappointed as I wanted to buy one of her lovely Coffee Pots but she does'nt ship to England. There are some talented ladies on these blogs and I love that it's lovely when the kids have grown up and we have time for ourselves I love having me time.
Spring has really arrived in England the weather has been great for a few days I hope it stays that way for a while.

Shopping Day

Hello People,
Food shopping today, the only thing that makes it bearable is that Kathleen and I go together, we have lots of laughs and lovely coffee.
I have to take my son to hospital tomorrow he has two impacted wisdom teeth and they are operating to get rid of them, he will only be there for one day but I'm sure he will be glad when it is done.

It has been another loely day and I managed to get a little gardening done when I got home the Thrush was serenading me all the time and my little Robin was enjoying the worms thatcame to the top.

Bye for now

Sunny Sunday

I Have been in the garden again today it has been really beautiful the sun was warm Tony and I sat outside and had a cup of tea at 8.o.clock this morning. I have been weeding and tidying up the spring flowers are definitely 'a poppin' lots of yellows and blue's.

I made this tablecloth from a pattern I bought in Australia it is really pretty and looks great in the garden on my small round table.
