I had twins in 2008, soon after my husband left and I never thought in my wildest dreams I would manage to buy our own wee house. I moved back to my home town and bought an ex council house, it was home. My parents lived here and I managed to see more of them, it was almost like it was to happen because 2 years later I lost my dad, I then was with my mum all the time and we supported each other. We were best friends. She used to give me great advice on plants etc . I soon lost my mum too followed by one off my closest friends. It had to be the worst time of my life. So ten years on and there hasn’t been too much change to my small garden. It had a large piece of decking that I tried hard to maintain but unfortunately it became too much. I got in some ‘gardeners to take it away and give me a little bit artificial grass. They made such a mess of it. Three years later I managed to get a better piece of grass but my garden is all but nothing short of a mess. I know there are so many more people more worthy than me to get a makeover but I’ve never won a thing in my life, everything I have though I feel so fortunate. I can never see a day when I will ever be able to get my garden up to date. This would make me and my children very very happy . Also my fence has been blown over with the wind....disaster. I would love to have people over in the summer but it’s not a nice place to sit. If I could just have it slabbed it would look amazing. I’ve never put myself forward for anything because I do feel there are much more deserving than me. Sometimes we all just need a helping hand x
