No magic wands here, just plugging away at it a bit at a time. That's why it's so good to come ger for affirmation and encouragement and commiserations as the case may be.
I have had to retreat form planting as they thought it was too hot so I pottered off and tidied up the garage so all my pots and trays are stashed but handy if needed. All that's left to clear out now is the furniture that needs sanding again and then a feed of special oils and a final rub down before itgets moved indoors to a clean room for painting or lime washing or lime waxing.
Found a lovely long narrow table base in the ruin with a top cobbled together form an old door. Used as a workbench. If I can get the top off and clean up the legs and find a new top we've got ourselves a refectory table for the party/meetings barn. We have swallows nesting in the ruin so I've shooed Minstrel out and closed up the doors. They're flying in through empty window panes.
No swifts or house martins tho. I wonder where the hoopoes nest.
OH has taken the dogs out so I can do some more planting and then start dinner before having a well earned shower.
Joyce - a bit worrying about OH going for a wander. Hope it was a one off.
