Two glorious days, in the garden, walking hard, cleaning, ironing and......aches and pains. Perhaps removing a shed and laying 3 courses of bricks was not such a good way to spend a Sunday morning, even with lots of muscle to help. Mind you a bargainicious trip to Mr T softened the pain, and picking up a tenner as it blew past my feet was as good as a massage.
Result, a fridge full of veg, fruit and meat for Ben, some essentials stocked up and a spend of £4:32 .
Ben now has a weeks worth of cooked meat, veg and rice mix tucked away in fridge and freezer for about the price of a tin of Lily's premium dog food.
I started him on that to help with his skin condition but at £2.20 a tin it was a big outlay. I used to cook all the food for my Spaniels so decided a week or so ago to start for Ben. His coat and skin are showing a good improvement and his energy is amazing ( perhaps I should eat it ) He walks 3 miles with no effort and is still bouncing when we get home.
Not a lot on the craft front to report, I have dug out my small solid granny squares. I laid them out and although I had enough I wanted a few lighter colours. I chose 5 balls of yarn and have made 6 squares from each, I will rearrange later today and start joining them this evening. Photos will follow.
I have a new garden shed coming today or tomorrow and this weeks priority is to get it assembled and sited. I want to move a large plastic storage box this morning and then finish levelling the site.
My seed potatoes need chitting and the seed propagators are dotted round various windowsills.
I must give the greenhouse a wash and a quick spray to kill any nasties.
A sprinkle of slug pellets on the raised beds, before they are covered with fleece to warm the soil, just to give my new plants the best possible chance.
I love the prospect of pottering about outside and as it seems that the Goddess of Spring has decided to wake up after all I want to be prepared. I was that Brownie and Guide.
Ben is making "time for a walk" noises so,
