AT last .........

At last we have a back garden . Somewhere to relax and run barefoot across freshly cut grass on a hot sunny day -  know its cold and wet right now but im so looking forward to next summer. A back garden all to ourselves and were not overlooked at all.

They say its the little things in life which make you smile and been able to do that is one of them for me.

I grew up with a massive 80 foot by 20 foot garden at my mum and dads so when I moved in to H's place I was well slightly disappointed when I moved in to his place and there was nothing in the back apart from flags but now we've moved house we have a decent size garden and me been me I have plans !

G has 3 cousins one is 15 and will so be enrolled for baby sitting duties as we  now live much closer to her. He also has to other cousins J who is 9 and A Who is 7 A & G love playing together and I'm just so please we now live within 5 miles of A & J, its going to be a lot easier playing together for playdates and just fun times !

hear it is .....

Tots 100 asked us to think about our dream gardens and well this is it but I want some huge play centre for G and cousins to play with .
So for my dream garden we get  £750 to spend at
this is so hard cus theres so much I want for G but I want it to last and be suitable for A & J too
I would start of with something like this its a plum first climbing set
its £199
and then
a swing slide set , as a child I only had a very basic swing - think a frame with a very cheap seat - I couldn't share with friends this next item is amazing as its got everything G will ever need
Soulet Vintage Livarde Play Set- £357
which can be found at
so my total is now £556 -
every man needs a shed and this little play house is perfect for G
Perfect at £185 it would leave us with £15 to spend on some bedding plants so next the garden will be full of blooms and a very happy G
