A really busy day here.
Late start so housekeeping took up to 10 am - sweep kitchen, mop floor, was breakfast dishes, feed birds, stack firewood next to stove, put yesterday's washing away.
10 am take delivery of Belfast sink for my kitchen renovation. Move chairs from conservatory so it can sit in corner till needed.
10.30 = sow some winter veg seeds for the poly tunnel.
11-1 1 = help husband fill raised bed he has just created using railway sleepers from the top soil heap further down the field. About 12 wheelbarrows needed.
1- 2.30 lunch (home made minestrone soup) and collapse.
2.30 to 4.00 - bonfire! Son and daughter in law helped us take 15 ft off two elderberry trees when they visited recently and take them down the field. They reasoned it was better than a gym session and cheaper than their London gym fees! Wind was from the south today so with the (trusty) wheelbarrow filled with scrap wood and some firelighters we went to have a go at the resulting piles of branches. Great success.
4 - 5 - tea and collapse
6 pm Dinner Shepard's pie, fruit sponge and custard and collapse for the evening. Legs and arms dangling from our armchairs.
