Hi Clarice!

Well some bits done in the garden. Now flat on my back on the sofa ti let things settle. Accidentally brought a bag of chocolates in with me...

Anyone done any gardening today?

Emptied one of the compost bins onto my garlic bed (they were looking rather sorry for themselves with this dry weather) digging in blood and bone to give them a boost. Then did the same for the lavender bed; its safe to say that this will be the last year for at least half of the plants: more wood than green.

Lots of weeding: now having to lay down and rest my back to try and balance out the spine. Still so much to do!

Fidget - I'm suffering your issue wuth imput. Seems weddings and pregnancies (not me) are ripe pickings for family to think they can push their "ideas" On you and you must be grateful. Still they don't have to come!

I've already told my boss (also my friend) that if I ever get pregnant I will inform my partner, my boss, and then hide it until the nursery is decorated and its impossible to deny further (say when the child's three?)

Day off after 26 hours at work this weekend (next day off - 10th May!). So much for a 30 hour contract! I'm going to empy one compost bin onto my garlic and plants in pots to try and give things a perk (already done the cleaning and ironing so I was that tired last night I was dizzy) And try to clear the area where I want the chicken coop going (other half trying to back out of the coop being my birthday gift - ahem no!) And the greenhouses moving too.

I thought I read that that there Rob off the Allotment challenge was giing to be doing A publicity event at Dobbies today (Derbyshire one) that I thought about wobbling over too But I think I dreamt it!

Evening all. Just finished the day shift now preparing myself (relaxing in the office eating chocolate) for the night shift (a ghost hunt). I was very happy to see it raining earlier although it didn't seem to hang around very long My poor garlic wasn't looking happy first thing they could do with a good drink!

 

Starting to get very dark over Sheffield but I'm not sure if its rain or just night time. We could really do with a cracking thunderstorm to really stir things around: wonder if the "ghost hunters" will agree with me? Bless them we have a chatty bunch here it'll be interesting to hear whose around tonight.

Have a wonderful evening everyone!

Just remember guys we are due a Bank Holiday soon - and not only am I working all bank holiday BUT I'll also be camping (i.e. fields) AND in an inflatable smoke house (i.e. a GIT to pack away when wet). That's got to be worth a small monsoon?
