Oh Panda! Get yourself a hot water bottle and keep moving GENTLY!! That means no climbing ladders or moving the wheelbarrow around or any other silly ideas you get til it settles properly (trust me I've done them all - it doesn't help matters!)
I've been a bit of a grump recently but have decided, one way or another to do something about it. First on the list is a trip to a toy shop for some Lego. It gets (much) more expensive from there on!
Hoping the rain might hold off on Saturday as I've two dead patches of earth on the lawn from where the ton sandbags sat for months while the shed was being prepared. I'm going to transplant the lush green grass from where the chickens run is going to be (I'm going to sink a sand pit in for them so loosing the grass wont matter). I'd best start another thread really and ask for advice - I've never done a grass transplant before!
Also as well as my snow drops I've realised that all the rhubarb is within the chicken coop construction zone which I assume will be promptly destroyed by curious chucks. *agh*. When is the earliest I can dig this up to move it to a well prepared area (read - plenty of horse poo dug in). I've not been harvesting from it as I knew I was going to move it - but had intended that to be this autumn!
Amazing how quickly a "neglected" area of the garden suddenly is full of stuff when you come to use it.
