Blue Red

Got a few things done!

Last night I realised that I needed to take my sims 3 to Steve's flat for him to hide from me for a while! It's too addictive!

So today being sim free and just about back to normal health wise I've finally got around to shampooing my spare bedroom carpet and rug, my hall carpet and rug and my living room large rug. They have all come up all white and shiney clean! The two small rugs have been cleaned once before last year when my mom got the new shampooer and I rolled them up and took them on the bus down to her house. My large living room rug has never been done since I got it about 6 years ago. It looks SOOO clean!

I've just got my bedroom and the living room carpets to do. It'll maybe have to wait now until after the weekend.

I also sorted out the books in my bookshelves and put some in a pile to go to friends, neighbours or the charity shop.

Sometime either tonight or tomorrow afternoon I've got some stuff to write for church on Sunday. I like to write it on Thursday or Friday then leave it until Saturday afternoon and go back and re read it with fresh eyes and correct any mistakes.

I've got some plant news too but I'll put it in a separate post with some photos.

Some plant photos from my front.
(sorry I can't do an LJ cut on them, my posting box isn't giving me the option!)

Downstairs in John's garden is a huge Sunflower!





And today I've just noticed two flowers on my clematis!



These photo was taken on my birthday a couple of weeks ago!

Orchids and dangly things

I forgot to take photographs of my orchids.

My orchids seem to flower for a very long time (months and months) and then all the flowers drop off at the same time and then about 3 weeks later they all flower again.

The dark purple one is my oldest. I bought it in a sale for a £1 as I moved into this flat it was looking very dead! I loved it back to life and it has flowered for me for a year and a half.

The yellow one was a birthday pressie last year from Steve and has flowered all the time too.

The light purple one was given to me by my neighbour in February. It had been a Christmas pressie and had flowered and then the flowers had dropped off so she had cut it all down! She was fed up with it as she thought it was an ugly plant! I've looked after it and it's taken 6 months for the new stalk to grow.

Yesterday, after a 3 week spell of quiet they all flowered again!










And a picture of all my dangly things in my conservatory!
