I've been a contract accountant for rather a long while now and have fallen into the habit of going directly from one role to another without a break. Good sense financially, but for once I thought a bit wider and decided to be kind to myself by taking a week off. I've hit lucky with the weather, so that in itself makes the week seem like an extra special bonus
So, what to do with the week? I've a day charity shop touring with my lovely friend Jill (and I know exactly where we're going for lunch!) and a day with my hubby. I've got the computer repair man booked and a craft fair to visit with the lovely Elly. I have to squeeze in a visit to Sarah if we can sort out a time. I've got a long list of possible things I might want to do, but have promised myself that I don't have to do any of them unless I want to
Today though, has been busy already. The garden's been a bit neglected as I'm a fair weather gardener, and the weather has been anything but that for rather a long time. Yesterday, inspired by the return of the sun, we went and bought some plants to restock. Now, I don't really know what I'm doing with plants, so I buy what I like and put them where I think they'll look nice. Oddly, my taste currently seems to accidentally be on a yellow/acid green and purple scheme
This morning I was out gardening by 8.30. There was a whole run of shrubs that were lushly overgrown, so out came my favourite loppers and shears....
|Yes, that is a lawn rake on top. This pile was over knee high|
|Planting above the rodent graveyard led to a tense time with the border spade|
So, a short afternoon and then I'm picking up an excited daughter and friend from school to take them to a manga evening in a comic store. Mother love or what!
