weekend #24

What happened to summer this weekend?
It rained and rained and rained here in Leicestershire this weekend, so there wasn't as much garden progress as we'd hoped but we're getting there...
We got the patio area dug out (and it was great to see just how large the area is going to be) and half the mill-waste loaded in before the rain put a stop to things; I'm hoping the weather is kind enough to us that we can get the patio pretty much finished next weekend. Then we can sort out hiring a skip to get rid of the soil and then get the final 30 rolls of turf we need to complete the lawn. Then all that will be left to do is stone the area in front of the shed base that was built last weekend :)

On Saturday afternoon we took a trip with my mother-in-law and step-father-in-law to Dobbies to get some ideas for the garden...

Once home we decided to head out again (Hubs wanted to take the hire car down the motorway) to a nearby shopping centre...
 ...where we bought a new cushion and a new TV, just in time for watching England on Saturday night!

I spent Sunday morning cleaning up (I even cleaned the windows inside) and preparing a roast dinner...

After dinner, we headed out into the drizzle and grey skies for a walk (although the rain did make everything look so green and lush)...


I ended the weekend at the cinema seeing Me Before You with my mother-in-law and her sister :)

How was your weekend?
