Warm and breezy here.
Lots to do in the garden but I've run out of energy! Half tempted to drag a blanket onto the grass and have a nap for an hour or two.

Thanks Mrs G!! I didn't think it would be so difficult - proper sweaty hands and I don't think I can just blame the heat! (Roasty warm here today though - hopefully the garden is drying out nicely!)

I miss air conditioning in my vehicle! Sat here having a rest and much needed drink and calm down but I could be growing tomatoes in here!

Good news is that his friend is running late buying me more time!!

Ironing board might work but we have a rule that I will buy him any vacuum cleaner he wants but he is in charge of vacuuming - like a nervous dog I can't stand the noise to the oo5int I have to go and stand outside with my knees all trembling!!

He has an amazing ability to knock pots over regardless of how carefully I put them out of the way. Seriously I swear I'm one step off cementing the pots down in the patio to try and keep them upright.

The washing machine however I don't think he knows exists. 

I can't even hide anything in my car he has a habit of going in there to twiddle with things.

Oh Chicky that sounds like torture!!

Playing the where can I hide things from my partner. I'm thinking in the washing machine might be the way forward...

KEF - I still can't get hold of the poo fairy so looks like my back gets a week off!

Just found a newt in the garden! First one I've seen here!

Alas can't upload photos on my mobile so here's a link to where you can see it.

I'd forgotten how dark they are!

Yay! Sunshine!  Guess that means I'd best get back out and do some work!

Freen Composting material?

Definitely! Try asking around where you work for local gardening clubs or allotments,  there might even be someone you know who will take it off your hands for their own compost bins.
