With the weather being nice last week we managed to get out and clear away some of the mess that is our overgrown jungle! Living in rented accommodation means that there is only so much we can do so to at least tidy up the bushes and add some plants and ornaments makes it a little more like our own.
Wilkos kindly sent us some gardening goodies to help with our project and the gloves certainly came in handy while trimming back the huge bushes that line the side wall of the house, separating the house from the garden is a large fence which is covered with all kinds of climbing ivy and vines. These gloves kept my hands thorn free and of course they are very pretty as well as practical so bonus points there!
The kids would have a menagerie of animals lining the entrance of our home and circling the entire garden given half the chance so when we spotted this little flock of ducklings we knew we had to add them to our little zoo! Solid enough to withstand a knock from the football and hardy enough to withstand the English winter (heck even the English summer at this rate!) these little ducklings look like they will be a permanent fixture in our garden for a long time to come (I’ve lost count of the amount of ceramic smashed animals we have had!)
One project we are yet to start on is our fairy garden, these two planters will be turned into the garden with a little stream, washing line and twinkling lights! I know Evie is super excited about this project and I am hoping that this weekend the weather will be still enough for us to at least make a start!

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
