Monday, March 8


Today I have had an unexpected free day with the Smallest P off to nursery and I have put it to good use. This is what I can do in a day if I really put my mind to it:

1) Three loads of washing, now dried, folded and in the airing cupboard.

2) An extensive haircut for many of the more unruly plants in the garden, not to mention the wisteria which was galloping recklessly under the eaves and into the loft.

3) Accidental plastic surgery on the end of my thumb.

4) Re-arranging the woodshed. There is something in there and it has deposited nastily on the wall. Ugh.

5) Supervising small people baking jam tarts.

6) Lighting a fabulous bonfire to get rid of the prunings.

7) Cuppa with the nice lady next door.

8) One game of netball in the freezing cold.

Along the way I was joined by a very noisy Robin who was busy telling the world this was his patch and he was very important. He sounded fabulous but wouldn't keep still long enough to take a picture. I hope he will hang around for a bit.

Tomorrow I'm off to do some paid work.

I'm glad to see that you're keeping your thumb wound nice and clean. That's the main thing!

A noisy robin, you say? Or a noisy Robin ...???
