Thank you for all your lovely comments, the holiday did us so much good, we knew we were stressed but didn't realise quite how much it had affected us both until we came home feeling utterly 'normal', for the first time in ages. We'd forgotten what 'normal' was.
Bit of an anti-climax this week though.....we both feel fine, it's just that life is now plodding along with no dramas, aggravations, stresses, worries. So what am I complaining about?! Well, nothing really....I'll take plodding over aggravation any day.
Nothing much to report really. I sorted out all the tubs in the front garden the other day, pruning dead stuff, taking out the top couple of inches of old soil and replacing with new, then filling with bedding plants - petunias, geraniums and lobelia. OH weeded and pruned the two corner flower beds. All the veg and fruit is coming along really well....we've had several meals of new potatoes, the ones he grew in bags in the polytunnel. We're pulling early carrots now, they're so yummy and full of flavour, makes you realise that supermarket bagged carrots are simply tasteless. The first courgettes and strawberries are just about ready too. Blackcurrants are turning colour, which reminds me, must cover the bush with fleece before the birds strip all the fruit off. I don't mind them having a few, in fact I deliberately scatter a few on the ground when I'm picking them....I just don't want them scoffing the lot! Must pick and freeze more rhubarb, it's taking over that corner of the garden.
The crocheted bed topper is very nearly done, just another 3 or 4 edging rows to do, I should finish it tomorrow I reckon. Will post a pic.
Might go to a boot sale tomorrow, providing it's not peeing down. There's a new one just starting up, it starts around midday which is good....most of them round here start at 7 or 8 am. That's no good for us.....OH doesn't get home from work until about 3 in the morning, which means he doesn't get up till about 10 ish.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
