It has been a bit of an up and down month with some frustrating times…….there have been a few occasions when I have been channelling Victor Meldrew! If I was a cartoon I would have steam coming out of my ears but, as always, I’m trying to laugh it off and find things to be optimistic about.
Month: March 2022
Vivi’s Kitchen Garden: Peppers, Celery & Pelargoniums. Sowing, pricking out & potting on.
I still don’t feel up to time in the garden but I can get my hands dirty at home in the meantime. Today I am sowing my celery and I show you how I make the paper pots I use for them. I’m also potting on my peppers now they’re ready……..but some of them look rather sorry for themselves…I speculate why. Also a quick chat about my Pelargonium cuttings and when you can take yours if you haven’t already done so.
On the Sofa: An octopus, a fox & a drag queen…plus a request!
I may have been cooped up at home for the last 10 days…..and spending time in bed…..but, hahaha, I still have a lot to chat about! Join me (with a cuppa and your knitting etc, it’s a long one again!) as I recount some of the last few days…….and explain the title! Oh….and there may be an unexploded WWII bomb amongst it all too.
On the Sofa: Ouch! A change of plans, again.
I’ve just received some news about my house move which means a huge delay. But, first, a change of my immediate plans after an ‘ouch’ moment. Also, ugh, the camera focus on this one is awful…..I suggest listening whilst doing something else!
Beyond Frugal: A Low Spend Year: Clothes.
Continuing in our series on having a low spend year today’s chat is all about clothes. I’m sure many of you do these things already……and may have other ideas and tips too; if so please feel free to share them with each other in the comments section. I hope you’ve all managed to save quite a few quid already this year.
Vivi’s Kitchen Garden: Preparing for muck!
There’s a slight change of plan today…….I had been intending to get stuck into the herb bed…..but after a text about getting some horse manure I decided I’d better get the beds ready to receive it. And then the plan changed again…….it’s good to be flexible!
Vivi’s Kitchen Garden: March Garden Tour (’22)
Not quite the start of the month but time for a tour of the garden. It finally feels like winter is on the way out and spring is arriving. During today’s tour I outline which crops are going in each bed (and their follow-on crops where appropriate)…….it’s a plan…..now I just need to do it all.
On the Sofa: They’re done (the lavender bags)! & other chat.
Yay! The lavender bags are done and ready to go on sale later today. A little catch up with some other stuff too including a pineapple, an aerogram and some sweet smelling clothes.
On the Sofa: Sewing projects, house move & random chat.
Goodness me it’s a long one! I hadn’t intended it to be so long….but I was enjoying chatting to you while I worked on the lavender bags…..so, make a pot of tea, grab your sewing or knitting (ironing etc!), get yourself comfy and hang out with me, like old friends, while I chat about future sewing projects, the house move and other random stuff.
