Clari ... reliable wages cheques will be a definite improvement I think you've been incredibly forbearing.
I've sorted out the front bed, weeding and mulching with lots of well rotted compost (the soil there is almost like sand) and planted a rosemary, Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy', Verbascum 'Helen Johnson', Penstemon 'Heavenly Blue' and lots of Narcissus Minnow that were in pots earlier on. I've taken the shears to the Clematis cirr. 'Freckles' and disentangled it from the Vib. Bodnantense,given the new plants and the clematis a good soaking and applied a moss killer to the front lawn. 'They' have promised that it'll rain tomorrow to water it in.
In the back garden everything has had a really good soaking and I've done a bit more hoeing and weeding.
Now there's a ragu chuntering on the hob for a spag. bol. for supper
I've also started a list of the stuff I'm taking to Wonky on Saturday
