Hi Chris, It was been a wet and cold week so far and in the evenings out come the warm woolies! It is really and truly winter and you will usually catch me with a blanket wrapped around my waist! I have been threatening to get wood for the fire for weeks now – but still no wood!

I have been reading up on all my The Gardener magazines because all I can do right now is plan my back garden. It is still too wet to work in it and we still need to complete the back garden wall for privacy. I have been going through all the garden design books you lent me. I have no idea how it will look but I have a few ideas I want to incorporate. Hopefully this week, I will be able to have a sketch of my back garden.

Hope you have a great week ahead. Xx
