I love our front garden. Its not very big, certainly very small in comparison to the back garden. However the little garden is pretty and has a cosy feel to it, if you could describe a garden in that way. When we moved in to our house there were two little trees in one of the borders, they were fine and didn’t cause any trouble at all. Over the years the trees have gotten larger and have at times been in the way. They block the light and I cant see the children playing from the dining room window. They had to go.
Our neighbour who is a keen chainsaw-er very kindly offered to do the deed for us. So on Saturday we decided that while the rain stayed away we would go ahead with the job. Sol got very upset at the prospect of losing her trees. She hid from the sound of the chainsaw and wanted to make a tree grave for our two trees. She came round however at the promise that I plant something new and pretty, something that will attract butterflies in the summer.
The rest of the week was uneventful. We had another day up in the city of Belfast shopping. Seb needed new shoes for his Boy’s Brigade club so we made that an excuse to go shopping again. He did well him and his sisters got chatting to the shop assistants in the Geox shop and ended up with three Geox watches to go along with Seb’s new shoes.
Later on in the Castle Court Centre Seb was watching the Pretzel makers at Auntie Annes pretzel stall, he watched intently how they stretched and rolled the dough. After a few minutes the pretzel guys came over and gave him this huge pretzel for free. Seb was delighted of course and they were more than happy to give him further demonstrations in pretzel making. I thought that was really nice.
