Yes I was all day gardening yesterday
Shrubs potted for now
Waiting with eagle eyes for any new emergence of weeds
And hubby to re-do the old pig shed roof
Which will involve trampling all over part of the flower bed
Hence a delay planting
All that remains are two rose bushes which produce no scent and though I hate getting rid of plants will go before I plant up my BLANK CANVAS
This is very exciting but a little daunting as I'm hankering very seriously for a lovely family kitchen extension errr ummmm in the future if plans go accordingly you understand!
Lots of windows and skylights may allow a successful flower bed to continue
There is a serious amount of work to do outside
No way will it all be done in time for Yule!
It's all about prioritising
Pig shed roof AKA the utility first
Next possibly the exterior back wall
Big job as the old bedroom extension where we sleep is only a rotted plywood plastered jobby
And using family muscle as much as possible
But excitement is bubbling slowly
I didn't want to come inside last evening
Even put off having a shower until this morning so I wouldn't have wet hair going to bed as it was fairly late and we weren't lighting the fire
I consider using a hairdryer unnecessary except in extreme cases!
My first learner of the day has cancelled due to illness so this morning is more relaxed than it would otherwise have been
A family of swallows are again using the nest just above our bedroom window
You know when you have all the ideas and not enough time or energy or means to do them all at once
Well that's me
But I'm going to have a darn good try
The swing seat I bought while living at the bungalow has been pulled out of overgrown grass down at the farm and is now home
Sadly it is rather rusty, but despite hubby's protests that it's a waste of time I am going to paint it
In fact I went to his workshop last evening and helped myself to a tin of red oxide
And a wire brush from his van!
This girl is determined
Though hubby has realised that I will need major help in removing my plants from their enormous pots in order to plant them up
He's a strong fellow so his help is appreciated
Though he'd strimmed the wildlife area while I was preparing roast lunch!
That issue has been raised in a calm manner and hopefully resolved!
The small EE box has not solved our problems
Hopefully on Thursday when I have to go to the big town...well past the big town for work I'll call in to EE and sort out fibre to copper because get this BT...they are offering it!
Until then I can only hope that this complete with a single photo will upload
Thank you for all your kind comments about our broadband woes...they are much appreciated
So until next time
