Garden Party #R2BC

It is Thursday so it's time to share the things that have made you happy this week.  I need cheering up this evening so looking forward to your posts. Thanks for everyone who joined in last week. For anyone new to the linky we have a few relaxed instructions: 
What do you have to do? Simple: 

1. Link up a post about something that is making you happy or grateful. It can be a list, photos or any way you fancy 

2. Add the #R2BC badge (at the end of this post) onto your post or blog so that people can easily find the linky and join in too if they want to 

3. Share the love. This is the really important bit. Please don't just link and run, comment on at least a couple of posts and why not share with #R2BC too? 

I'll stop by all linked up posts to comment and I'll share on social media too. 

Meanwhile here are my reasons to be cheerful for this week: 

1) Gardener Round

The relaxed rules meant I could have my gardener round. Bonus is that my gardener is my mum and I only pay her in cups of tea, biscuits and ice cream:

I did do some work myself when she had gone and it looks a lot better:

2) A splash of colour

Inspired by the front garden I tackled the back. I even dug out a new to me flower bed on the bit of grass that sloped annoyingly:

3) New Fridge Freezer

My pre-loved fridge freezer, that I have had for 5 years, finally stopped being good enough for use for us. So I bit the bullet and bought a new one for the first time in 20 years:

Yes it is smaller than our old one but its all shiny and new!

4) Fairy parkrun

The garden parky challenge this week was fancy dress. I raised so many smiles running around town dressed as a fairy:

5) BBQ

My parents were allowed to come to our garden for a BBQ. Strange to have to set up the tables so far apart but lovely to be able to socialise:

Now it is over to you...

  1. It's great to be able to get together people again isn't it? My parents came round for a cup of tea and a bit of gardening too. Loving seeing your garden evolve.

  2. Shiny and new trumps size any day. Lots of love and have another healthy and happy week. xxx

  3. I hope you've cheered up now, I'm sorry I am bogged with stuff to do this week, so I'll join in next. Mich x

  4. Sorry you needed cheering up, but I love the fairy outfit and I hope you loved seeing your parents too x
