Good morning, everyone. I'm awake early and it's hard to see what the weather is likely to be but Beeb says no rain and some sun. Mind you, they said that yesterday but . . .
On Facebook yesterday, Beth posted the following. It made me smile and I thought you'd like to see it. Indie is Freddie's mother.
"Last night, when Fred burst through the cat flap shouting and faceplanted into a bowl of food, Indie was singularly unimpressed. She glared at him through much meowing, two dinners, a cuddle and a bath.
Eventually she decided it was time. She walked over to Fred, grumbling, whapped him hard across the nose and proceeded to wash his head. And Fred, who is twice her size, let her, and even looked a little sheepish.
Mamas. They can be a bit scary sometimes, can't they? If Fred had any idea of bigging up his big adventure, Indigo's withering response put a stop to such nonsense."
Yesterday morning, I set off for the allotment, going to the garage first to get the codling moth traps first. As I locked the garage door I felt the first few drops of rain, as if it just knew I was setting off. Fortunately, it was a very short shower and then it all cleared up.
Lovely photo of piles of wet mud!
I did a lot more weeding down the far end, where the runners will go and around the raspberry canes, etc.
Then it's home to overdose on painkillers and rest up although I'm hoping I can potter at the allotment this afternoon, weeding, maybe digging the tomato area which won't be heavy or difficult, I just need to dig some seeds in.
I will get that ironing done and plan the next tuition sessions. I only have one next week as it's half term and the others are away but it's nice to get ahead. I also need to look for/prepare resources to meet issues that came out yesterday.
