The celebration

well we celebrated moms birthday and had a blast. there was myself, my mom, dad, sister and my sisters 2 kids. despite my dads whining and being a groan, we enjoyed ourselves. he’s all about routine, and he wanted to leave the garden centre after an hour, after we’d eaten our meal. but we wanted to stay and look around at the flowers and other items they sell. me and my sister also wanted to get dessert and get our mom a glass of wine to celebrate her birthday. we did end up staying which my dad wasnt to thrilled about. the garden centre has so many amazing flowers and plants, but a lot of them are very expensive. my sister bought some flowers, she said she wants to try her hand at gardening. i would have bought some but my fear of bees and insects keeps me from having flowers in my back yard. i did see apple trees though and I really want one. My friend rose said they draw wasps too though and my sister said they draw worms. I would also love a swing for my back yard. then I could sit out and read or listen to music while nitro played in the garden. i’d also love a water feature but they are so expensive. then you have to get a plumber to plumb it all in and stuff. it sounds like too much hard work but maybe i can dream? the food was lovely. for my meal i had a sweet chili and chicken rap with fries, and for dessert I had red velvet gateau. it was delicious. they make all of their cakes fresh every day so its extra nice. my mom won five euro on one of the lottery tickets I gave her. she didnt get anything on the other two. when we drove back to ur parents and dropped them off, mom said to me and laura that she’d had a fantastic day, then she kissed both of us which was a big surprise but a nice surprise. i think she felt special and was happy to have her family around her today. the weather here is still really hot. the temps are supposed to get higher tomorrow. we had a little thunder shower earlier but I think thats because of the heat. I’m feeling good tonight. I feel settled, calm and happy which feels so nice. Its been a wonderful day.

  1. So glad to see that you’ve had such a good day.
    How about a solar powered water feature or even one that runs on batteries so that neither would require plumbing – could that be a good compromise? Try a search on Amazon for ‘table-top water feature’ or ‘indoor water feature’.
    Also do you have Freecycle or Freegle in Ireland? I used to have a garden swing and got it for free on Freecycle.


      1. You might find a ‘giveaway’ group on Facebook. Freecycle and Freegle are where people give and receive items for free – they’re all about recycling things and keeping them from being thrown away. You’ll definitely find an indoor water feature on Amazon or elsewhere online. Share a pic if you get one 😊. xx


  2. I have an apple tree at the side of our house next to our lilac bushes. It is true, they attract wasps and worms. I want to get rid of the tree, but my husband wants to keep it. I also have a thing with insects and things that can sting. We constantly get wasps in our back patio room. I have to keep two cans of wasp killer on hand at all times during the hotter months. The hotter it is, the more they are out. YUCK! You don’t want an apple tree.
