August 6th. Day 218.My Mam was off work poorly today so Baker and I walked up to keep her company. These had arrived the day previously and because I'm me, I had to photograph them to cement the excitement.
Because Baker is such a dude at going to the garden centre now and all of my sunflowers died, we went back today and got a new plant to train up my fence. It apparently will spread to 6 foot by 4 foot, so should look good when I get a better planter for it. We may or may not of also picked up more gifts for little man's 3rd birthday and met a lovely lady who complimented his behavior and told us about her collie!
Today Jake went fishing with Dad meaning I had the house to myself. That means two things. I have the TV/Xbox to myself and I can film videos, so we (Baker and I) filmed my Disney Show and Tell! You can find it here!
There is a whole bunch of wild purple poppies growing across the road from me. Today Mam and Dad came to help Jake and I tidy up the gardens (pull weeds etc) because I don't feel comfortable going in my front garden with my anxiety and neighbors haha. I couldn't really get a photo of the garden so thought I'd take this one through the gate instead.
It finally arrived. Jake and I have wanted a GoPro since we started seeing each other, especially when he skated as he borrowed one from a friend and stuff. They're pretty expensive though so that never happened obviously. However, I decided to get this in time for Baker's birthday and especially our London trip in December. Long story short this is the first thing I have gotten on finance and the main reason for this is I have NO credit rating. I've never had anything on finance, had a credit card or taken out a loan and really never wanted to, so this was a easy way to build up my credit rating in time for getting a mortgage in the next 5-10 years. Hopefully.
Teeth brushing is heading into over obsession with my root canal getting closer and closer...
Doesn't this make you think of Alice in Wonderland?! It was a golden afternoon in my parents garden today and the giant daisies were in full bloom.
