My scorching, busy week

Summer has finally arrived and its been a scorcher!! I think we got up to 29°c at the weekend. Although, its so hot I don't feel like doing anything and I don't know how they could play tennis in that heat. Well done Andy Murray on winning Wimbledon 2013!

I've noticed quite a few flowers are dying off now, ones that usually last until about August, so I'm not sure whats happened. Has anyone else noticed this? Here are a few photos from the garden, a daisy-not sure of the name, a bramble flower, the pink/red rose is one we've planted and the spade is in the greenhouse which is becoming overgrown by weeds!


I bought some books in Asda on Friday, they were on a '3 for £10' offer and one had a free book with it so I got four books for £10. I have loads of books to read but I don't seem to get round to reading them! I hope to do some book reviews once I get reading again.

I went to help my friend on Friday, she has just moved house and needed help with her TV aerial and internet. The internet hadn't been connected and we couldn't get the TV to work so it wasn't a very productive day! These are the presents I got for her.

I haven't managed to do any crocheting for a couple of weeks. I did find a pattern that I might try, it's for crocheted Minions from the film Despicable Me. My niece and nephew love the film and I thought I would try and make them for their Christmas presents but I might have to start them now! You can find the pattern here.

This week I'm quite busy, we had the boiler man in today as the heating was coming on even when it was hot and he changed the valve. Tomorrow I may be looking after my niece and nephew, Thursday we are going to Legoland (we have annual passes!) and on Friday we are going to see Despicable Me 2 at the cinema.

I hope you're having a good week so far!
