I have been so busy doing all the same old things that over a week has slithered by without me realising.
The garden is almost there, although it is obscured by rain just now.
Yesterday it was brilliant sunshine and blue skies, with a 10 minute hail storm in the morning, and I made the most of it.
I have been nursing a cold for most of the week, nothing too bad but it did have a couple of days with horrible ear ache and a sore throat. I dealt with that by sipping lots of liquid and snuggling under my blanket while I crocheted the border. Another 3 colours should get it finished.
The kitchen drawers were all emptied, cleaned and refilled. Many bits and bobs have been put into the charity shop, just how did I manage to collect 4 identical sets of cutters?
Seeds have germinated, small plants have been pricked out, more seeds sown.
Purple sprouting broccoli is still going strong but the spinach is done, heavy rain battered it into pulp overnight. I have 2 trays of spinach in the greenhouse for salad leaves and a row in the garden for cooking.
Ben is still as active as ever and we are getting an average of 4 miles walking daily, unfortunately I have not lost an ounce of weight. I put that down to the fact that muscle weighs more than fat.
My pink cardigan is knitted, I have started to make it up. The yarn is out for the children's tops next.
The sun has just popped out and the clouds are rolling away so I am off to have a look round the raised beds.
PS, my young motorcyclist is on the mend.
