Sorry this is so late - I slept a bit late and had planned to do an early morning shop.
It's still a bit dull here but the sun is trying to break through and it's a bit milder than it has been. We're supposed to have some sunshine today and for the next two days as well so fingers crossed.
Yesterday was a lovely day with Beth and Alex over for lunch and an nice lazy afternoon/evening. I didn't get any ironing done and I didn't do any weeding, I was just lazy.
It's just as well I am feeling fairly energetic today. I've been to M&S and Aldi and am now stocked up with necessities for the week ahead. I then stopped off at Homebase and got several bags of potting compost and some canes plus, as an extra, a little tray of baby leeks. I'm not sure whether they will go in the garden or down the allotment, I'll have a think, but I do know that, while leeks are not hard to find and are fairly cheep, the fresh pulled from the garden variety is a wondrous thing in both taste and aroma. Dad had some last year and it was a pleasure to pull them up and cook with them.
After I've put away the shopping, I have to pop out to pick u[p some Easter cards a young friend has made for me and then I'll stop off at the allotment on the way home to unload the canes and the compost and, with any luck, to get that weeding done.
Then the rest of the day is my own so ironing, knitting and general housework is on the cards. If the sun really comes out as promised, there may also be a bit of sitting out in the garden too. Wouldn't that be great!
So I'd better get going. Thanks for all your comments yesterday; I have replied to them now. Have a lovely day and wishing you sunshine. xx
My eldest sister (retired district nurse, Macmillan nurse and matron)always says to me to "pay attention to my body signals". In other words if you are feeling lazy take a rest enjoy some quality time just for you :-) Fresh leeks are delicious! Enjoy your day Amanda xReplyDelete
I really like that, Amanda! Thank you.Delete
It's odd how just a cold has knocked me sideways. Maybe I'm just getting old. lol
I have such a problem getting going when we first change the clocks in spring. This morning I found it was 9.45 and hadn't even had breakfast!ReplyDelete
Enjoy the next few warm days - it sounds good
We get used to a certain light and this morning I was very confused when I woke, not really knowing if it was last night before the street lights went out on this morning after the lights went on again.Delete
Thankfully, we don't have to get up for work nowadays.
Hope you had a lovely day and that you managed to get to the allotment. My first seeds are coming through now so I have tomatoes, peas, parsley and some Calendula poking their heads above the ground.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to some good weather this week especially now we can met up a little more outside with family and friends x
Oh, lovely! My tomatoes aren't showing yet but I don't want them too early, not having a greenhouse.Delete
I hope you have had a lovely day. When I sleep in I have a very hard time getting moving in the morning.ReplyDelete
I know exactly what you mean!Delete
