Sunny Sunday

Happy Easter Everyone, I hope youve all had a choctastic day.
It's been lovely having a long weekend, I really needed it.
So far we have done lot's in the garden, Gav came home from work at 5pm on Thursday night and promply started making a new garden table, he was finished by 9pm!

 He has been on a mission since we came back from holiday & has gardened every night after work.
I have been pottering, planting veggies and weeding.
I did howeve decide to finish restoring my vintage deck chair today, It has taken a while to do, removing the old torn canvas, sanding it down, teak oiling twice and then today redoing the fabric panel today.
 I used the vintage sanderson fabric I found at the CB last summer, such a bargain £3 for the whole bolt, plenty left to make some seat cushions for the garden chairs.

This afternoon we have built a composter out of old pallets to take over from the plastic tardis that we had.
Thanks for all the Birthday wishes, I shall be baking again tomorrow, Gav has requested Banana muffins for work next week.
I hope you all have a wonderful short week & another long weekend.
