    The lockdown has certainly made the summer holidays feel very different and it is strange how usually they would feel like a long holiday stretching ahead but now they feel quite short compared to the four months of restrictions we’ve had. Sounds like things are coming together in your garden – fingers crossed for getting the missing piece so you can get the settee put together and hope you can fix the net for the trampoline. It’s a shame that you couldn’t go on holiday as planned but hope that you can enjoy spending time in the garden instead. #WotW

      I’m actually quite looking forward to a summer in the garden now, I just wish I could do some gardening myself. I might be able to help paint the lower parts of the shed.

    Tidying the garden always makes me feel better! I hope the nice weather continues so you can all spend lots of time enjoying it 🙂 Have you tried contacting the company you bought the garden furniture from? Most would be happy to help I’m sure and it saves you having to continue the hunt! #wotw

      Yes, we have contacted the furniture company and they are willing to send us the part, the only problem is that they are made in Portugal and they don’t have any in stock at the moment. I’m sure we’ll get one eventually.

    I agree about the summer holidays. Ours will mainly be spent in the garden – weather permitting, We haven’t booked a holiday and my parents will be self isolating for much of it. Roll on September!

    You’re right the excitement about the school holidays just isn’t there.
    It sounds like Graham has been really busy.
    Good luck with fixing the net on the trampoline and getting the part for the garden furniture. It sounds like a good idea brightening up the shed. We gave our garage a lick of paint a few months ago and it looks brand new now. x
