Welcome to the blog where today we're linking up with Amy from Love Made My Home for Five on Friday.
As the last couple of Fridays I have taken you off to different towns for a look round, this week we'll be staying home to see what's up.
One - Brochure
A couple of weeks ago we received some direct mail, as you do, but instead of flinging the catalogue into the bin, I have kept it as whoever made the brochure has done a colourful and well presented job. Of course I can't recommend the company as I haven't bought anything.
Two - Chillies
Our chillies are already producing fruit even though the seeds were only planted in the Autumn. The Spring seeds have now germinated as Mr CK has sprung into action.
The last pot has a tomato in and sits with its chums on the windowcil but the potatoes and other seeds are under the sofa in the dark trying to get going.
Three - Cross Stitch
I'm having another go with my cross stitch which has been in the making for a couple of years, mainly it's been hiding behind the chair while I've been making other things. I am now half way through so there's no hope of finishing soon. It's a haberdashery shop.
Four - Cooperation
In the garden, the pigeons have been enjoying the crumbs dropped when the great spotted woodpecker feasts on the fat balls and peanuts. The squirrels are also eating madly and keep doing that thing with their tails, wiggling it around and around, up and down, twitching and twitching. So funny!
Five - Books
I have been thoroughly enjoying my Anne Tyler books - Breathing Lessons, about the twists and turns of married life which had me laughing out loud at times, and A Spool of Blue Thread, about old age and family. The accurate sense of character and circumstances in both books just hits the spot.
That's my five for this week but I have a photo of a plant which has been grown from seed, something that was picked up from somewhere last year, it's labeled white but now it's just a mystery. Any ideas?
I hope you have a great week.
Thanks for calling in and your messages.
Bye for now
