Huge list I've been saving for OH's retirement but haven't actually written down for fear of frightening him so I plan to spring them one at a time after preparing the proverbial and metaphorical ground. He's had January off to get used to not having to get up and catch a train to work and we've just had the build up to the dance club's 40th anniversary ball this weekend and are off to the Hague tomorrow so nothing doing till next week really.
He knows about the compost heaps needing turning and emptying and fixing. He knows about the trellis panels swaps and repairs and replacements that need doing. Just waiting for decent weather.
Then there's finishing the edging of the holly hedge bed with granite pavers and laying chipped bark. Ditto one edge of the back lawn without the bark, pruning dead branches from our prunus cerastifera, cutting back other shrubs, wading into the pond to clear flag iris and so on and so forth.
