I made it. Sadly without OH. Thank you for your help.
This Saturday is the long awaited wedding of my fabulous nephew Adam and his lovely partner Jess. The date has been rearranged twice. There has been much heartache and expectation in the process. Everyone has been looking forward to it for two years. My much-missed younger brother and his family from The Netherlands will beContinue reading “Staying Positive”
It got me in the end. The dreaded Covid. Stopped in my tracks. Unsure quite how, but still, it got me. After two years and several months, I have fallen. And here we are in poorly-land. It will be obvious that, due to my ability to scribble (metaphorically speaking) a spartan blog, I am notContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Gotcha”
Today the men are here laying the slab base for my birthday greenhouse. So far it has not been an easy journey down the road to construction. Crazy quotes, broken down vans and lost work days have not endeared me to the process, but still I keep the winning post in sight. The workers arrivedContinue reading “Great Excitement”

Here we are again, Mad May, and things are speeding up again. Weeks are flying by, soon it will be mid summer’s day, then September and then months of gloom and doom. Have I cheered you up? I expect not. If you want a proper cheering up, or if you are cheery already and wishContinue reading “Six on Saturday”
Yesterday I visited a nursery that I hadn’t been to before. We needed compost and on their web page they specifically mentioned that they stocked peat free compost. Always a martyr when it comes to plant shopping opportunities, I thought I would pop in on the way home and see what they had to offer.Continue reading “I needed to share”
Often the bud has more merit than the flower. It has the benefit of delicious anticipation.
