We had a decent amount of rain overnight (first for weeks) - which has perked things up no end.
Overcast and mizzly just now so an opportunity to get some things sorted inside before I go out and plant some ferns in a dry, shady patch & pop some rudbeckia in the gaps which opened up after some more enthusiastic pruning and cutting back yesterday.
(Oil) Boiler man is here doing the annual service at the moment. He commented on the slight fumey smell in the utility room as soon as he walked in. It's elusive and disappears when you've had a few sniffs or leave the door open and I've not been able to convince anyone there's a problem before. It's not CO or anything nasty - just not particularly nice to smell. Maybe he'll be able to sort it this time!
Huge hugs for BL. I had a year when it seemed that every month brought news of a friend, relative or close acquaintance either becoming seriously ill or dying. It was dreadful - relentless and exhausting. Trying to provide friendship & support for others more in need - all the time feeling like curling up and licking your own wounds for a while.
I hope you are also receiving some support right now BL. Get in touch if you need to talk
Edit: I still love my Dyson - even if it is a beast to lug upstairs. Only vac I've ever owned which really shifted cat hairs off the carpet. And I quite like taking it apart every now and again - weird or what?
