Hello all

Filled half a garden waste bin

Ended up going to dig up some more dirt for free from a garden in Bitterne, not too far away with mum and dad filled the boot with bags worth of dirt then emptied it out in our garden then back for more 1 more boot load, then as the soil is very clay-e broke it up a bit and put around the pond, so knackering back sore what a sunny day today and fed the birds earlier too

some one near by was having a bonfire again lucky wind blowing it the other way
