Tuesday

 Good morning, everyone.  Thank you for your lovely allotment comments on yesterday's post.  
We had rain yesterday evening but not, I think, all that much as the ground is dry this morning and it looks as if we might have some sunshine today.  That would be nice so fingers crossed.

No photos of the allotment today.  Clearing under the plum and pear trees took for ever and I only managed to get half of it completed before I had to head off home.  I'll get that done today first of all and then start on the chipped patch round the low beds and the bins.

I got the shop done and am now well stocked with fruit and veg.  I will eat well this week.

And that was about it as far as yesterday is concerned.  

Today, I am off to guess where again but, before I set out, I am going to spend ten minutes or so on my front patch as the weeds are having a party.  Fortunately, so are the bulbs so it should look much better once I've finished.

The only other thing in the diary is the weekly chat with Dad which I am really looking forward to and I need to fire off an email that needs thinking about first.  But first, coffee and bath - not together though!  xx

  1. I don't know but soaking in a bath while clutching a big mug of coffee sounds like a good idea to me.

    1. My bath is too small to soak, sadly. :-)

  2. The weather is fine here too but apparently there is some stormy weather and gale force winds on the way so I intend to make the most of it. I hope it goes well at the allotment.

    1. Yes - tomorrow afternoon it's due to hit here. Maybe it won't last long - I hope not anyway. xx

  4. It sounds like you are pacing yourself nicely on the allotment, it's best just to do a bit at a time and then each time you go back you can see all those small jobs making such a good improvement, and of course little and often is so much better for your back!!

    As much as I like both ... coffee and baths that is, I can't mix the two at all. I can't read in the bath either, how do people do it?

    1. Absolutely, Sue. I don't think I could spend a whole day there - two hours is as much as I manage. Like eating an elephant, in fact.
      I read in the bath, propping the Kindle on the side. No food or drink though.

    2. You're brave - I've dropped too many books in the bath water to risk trying to read on my Kindle!

      Enjoy your lotty time and chatting with your Dad xx

    3. I did it once and got away with it. I'm super careful now!
