Doesn't it get dark early?!

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 07:45

My greenhouse is now shut much more often than its open with my chillies in there trying to keep warm. I keep trying to be hopeful for a second summer but we seem to be rapidly hurtling through the year.

On a non gardening front I'm now hunting a space to put a tumble dryer as it's intended location wont be ready this year and despite there only being two of us we produce so much washing that having it drying all around the house is disheartening (especially the bed sheets - I love my big bed but it means huge sheets!) I miss drying clothes outside come winter (although last year they were hung out all through winter it was so mild).

HELLO FORKERS!

Very grey outside this morning, not had much time in the garden recently (redundancy time off wasn't long enough!) And it's now starting to look very tired. Hopefully I'll get a couple of days off in a week or two to get it tidied up as evenings just aren't long enough!

HELLO FORKERS!

Don't use all the hot water KEF I need to get a wash too. Left for work 08:30 yesterday got back 19:00 today and have been firmly planted in a blanket since then. Autumn is sneaking in a bit quick!

I'm meant to be catching up on my cleaning so I'm toasty warm OL! The job is going great but this weekend I'm staying over night in the building as OH is away and since Saturday'll be 09:00 - 02:00 followed by 09:00 - 17:00 I can't be bothered to drive home! Absolutely loving being busy and all the wonderful peopke I meet!

KEF - I have them drying on some kitchen paper as we speak. 

 

Just been to Barnsley where a wonderful company have gifted me some fire uniforms for the museum. Alas they don't come with fire men!

OK, who's got it?
