Good morning, everyone. There's a very 'watery' sun shining at the moment, if you know what I mean, and the forecast isn't great but you never can tell with our weather.
Thank you for the kind comments yesterday. I'm continuing to feel better and I think it's just been a cold plus some hay fever symptoms, combining to create misery < grin >. One always thinks, 'is it covid?' nowadays but I'm convinced it hasn't been that at all. Anyway, this morning I am well enough to wash my hair and feel all the better for it!
The main event of yesterday was meeting Jeff down the allotment. He gave the shelf the once over and agreed with what Beth and I thought needed doing. A new roof covering, a bit of patching up, repair the door and take and inch or so off the bottom of the door. He is sure he can use some of the old wood at the back to mend and patch up. Everyone's sheds on our allotment are battered and worn, make do and mend and something new and shiny might attract unwanted attention. Ditto for a fancy lock or big padlock.
Slimming World was good. Jen has been attending some training by SW and was very keen to share it with us so it was a lively session.
Today, Jeff comes at 8:15 to start his fortnightly attacks on my garden. Today, sadly, he is taking out my huge, overgrown, very woody rosemary bush which I intend to replace with another. I've taken cuttings but, if they don't come to anything, it's easy to find plants in the garden centres.
Beth is round again but I'm not sure we will get to the allotment. While I've been typing, the sun has disappeared and it's looking very like rain.
However, she wants to make up dolls' parcels to send to friends who responded to her 'would you like some . . .' Facebook message and she can get that done.
That's really about it. I have housework and must get a neglected home ready for the cleaners so I will get started on that as soon as my hair is dry.
I hope your day goes well for you and that you stay safe and well. xx
Looking like rain here today too. Yesterday was fine except for a 10 minute part of my bike ride when I got soaked and it wasn't even forecast.ReplyDelete
Oh, no. I hope you didn't get too chilled. xxDelete
Snowing here, take care,ReplyDelete
Oh, goodness . . . it's a bit chilly here but nowhere near snow, thankfully. xxDelete
The weather here is a bit mixed but I'm glad you are feeling better.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Diane. I'm definitely on the mend here. Just a nasty cold, possibly complicated by hayfever onset. Where I caught a cold I have no idea but there you go! It happens. xxDelete
It's pouring down here and looks like it's set in for the day. I'm glad to hear that you're feeling much better today, and that you have the pleasure of Beth's company to look forward to. xxReplyDelete
Thanks, Eileen. It was a really pleasant afternoon with Beth, despite the rain. xxDelete
It's a shame you didn't live closer. I have the door from our old shed sitting on the drive. It's too good to just chuck out and will be cut up and turned into a plant pot stand for the garden. I'd have gladly given it to you.ReplyDelete
I answered this but it hasn't shown, what a nuisance.Delete
Thank you so much for the thought, we would gladly have accepted your kind offer, if it were possible>
I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with it. xx
Glad you're on the mend, Joy. Take it easy for a few more days.ReplyDelete
I will, thanks, Chris. I'm still feeling tired - no, weary - and I guess I'll have some snoozes today.Delete
Glad you're feeling better. Sorry you didn't get to the allotment but maybe for the best.ReplyDelete
Yes, I think so. Getting soaked is not my idea of allotment fun! :-) Thanks, Sharon. xxDelete
