Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 19/01/2015 at 14:07

Patched the two broken window panes on the greenhouse (its being dismantled and moved come spring) with a bit more tape and potted some garlic up to act as replacements should nothing come up in the garlic bed: 20 garlic cloves went in on 8th December and so far there aside from a few weeds there is only one potential showing up.

I'm trying very hard to be good and not going in my lady cave (like a man shed but posher) because I'm seeing on Twitter people planting their tomatoes and chillies. I can only assume they've heated greenhouses because my partner will not be happy if I fill the windowsills with plants this year.

Too much money not enough incentive to get your rump off the sofa and spend that extra three minutes preparing the food perhaps David.
That said when I was struggling with post crash injuries and only one functioning limb they were a god send to being able to make my own "healthier" meals rather than live off ready meals.

It's Monday morning Dove cut yourself some slack! I've decided to climb back into bed for a while, regrettably I didn't bring another cup of tea with me

Oh Panda how cold is your bedroom? ! The weather lady said to watch out for slips in this weather but I thought she meant outside!

Morning all! Nice to see you back Mrs. G!

Well we survived a weekend scout camp at the museum - they didn't tell us they were bringing the full age range of cubs and beavers too! Cue much stress trying to rehash the talks we give and activities to be suitable for such a wide age range. 

Still beats a weekend infront of the tele.

Garden is a white out at the moment. I know the wind of late has broken two greenhouse panes; a much needed day off I'll be nervously inspecting the rest!

Evening all. Home alone tonight: darling lordship after hearing I'd be away this weekend so booked a meal for his friends... but for tonight when I'm at home rather than tomorrow night. 

1.8'C and dropping here. I'm tempted to build a blanket fort.

Priorities Dove. I will happily swap working with animals to working with people. Everyone knows animals come first in my life.
