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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
