Morning all.

I can just about walk & bend after a session yesterday in daughter's garden, even when it rained! Her wheely bin is full again! The back garden really is a soggy/wet situation. She has a new pond & a stream on 2 sides now. No not dug by me, just what happens when it rains .The clay soil is really clay & here was me hoping it was just the subsoil- no such luck. Oh well, a lot of growing in patio pots this yr I think, whilst we continue to access the state of things. At least 1 of her bird boxes appears to be occupied now.

OH is in the doghouse- but I dont think he knows it yet. Somehow the hole for a rotary washing line ended up blocked with whatever you have to put down it to secure the support in place. Now that blockage removed, but hole now too wide, no 'tube' to hold support, as in pieces, & dryer obviously not being held securely in place..... Daughter muttering about 'wouldnt have bothered buying one if I'd known he was going to make a such a * up!!'

I then had to teach her about curtain hanging. Oh no, Mum's way wasnt what it said on packet. So she tried 'the correct way' & ended up doing it my way after all. Couldnt bend properly to put the hooks in place when curtains spread out on bed, so that led to a row! Apparently they are now all up & I have a video somehwere on line to see the end result.

I shall abandon plans for my seed sowing today as OH & me need to do some joint paperwork which is long overdue. Tomorrow is another day. J.

Dont 'do' posh, will scrub up though.

As usual have treated myself in M&S & get back to find that they've sent me a voucher... But I did use gift vouchers so not all bad & wasnt full price either. So stop it Jo.

Front garden very uninteresting

Bjay- I'd go for the Cotinus coz it's easier to keep smallish, if that's what you want. Photinias are pretty fast growers IME so may need more work in the long run, but thed you may want a tree.......J.

errr jo is the engineer to look at OH or boiler

Boiler, mechanical sort!

Have just told OH that daughter has left bags & bags & boxes of 'stuff' to take up tomorrow. It's Ikea furniture assembly day! Will be good practice for when I finally measure a space we've got & order ours!! After last yrs fiasco I'm not in a rush- know what I/we want & it'll not be discontinued!

All being well, if we're good, we'll get a 'day off' on Sunday. J.

Lottie, bighugs from me & all, we understand. Just pop in whenever you feel like it.

OH n e a r l y asleep in chair. Have arranged for engineer house visit, only another 10 days of yelling at it!! Well probably will be longer coz will need parts/new one fitted, oh heck, then Easter intervenes................

Still to order tesco, but sort of organised for tonight's meal & shop list for me/OH already done!

Sweetpeas look happy in the porch, more shoots on the dahlias, so not all bad. J.
