Morning all :)
« on: April 17, 2018, 07:44 »
I feel a bit sore after strawberry planting, yesterday,  but hope to get a bit more done today, although I'm not at all sure what the weather is going to be like, from looking at the sky. It looks full of rain but the forecast is for sun  8)
Have a good day, whatever you're up to  :)

I'm aching a bit from digging yesterday as well.  I've got work later, but currently wondering about clearing a couple of patches in the garden for poppy seeds and sowing some squash.

More coffee needed first  :D

Tea for me please, but I've got sticky buns to go with it, if anyone wants one?

I'll swap some digging with someone ....

Today I shall be cleaning 40 years of emulsion paint from the electrical socket faceplates  ::)  Being 18" off the ground, it will no doubt involve me crawling around on the floor and folding myself into strange shapes to try and clean the underside.

That is of course after I soak off the countless layers of wallpaper left behind them because why bother striping the wallpaper from behind a socket, it's not like anyone can see if  >:(

I swear this refurb is like painting the Forth bridge ... never ending.

Oooh I have such sympathy for you there Lardman. We embarked on major refurb some months back, and the hallway was a complete nightmare, with layer after layer of painted wall paper, one atop the other, and stripping it all off took weeks. And then there was the paintwork, which, with moulded topped skirting boards took a mass of work squatted down, and as for the ceiling, well a lot of that fell down when the woodchip came off. We replaced the sockets and light switches in the end as in cleaning them they ended up all scratched in removing the paint.

Catch it then ......  :D

Today's gone very wrong - was sposed to be early Tesco delivery, gardening,  physio.... maybe more garden
Instead I get a txt tesco delivery running late, be there by 10. Then another saying be there by half past 1  :mad:

Rang them and said won't be there cos of hospital physio session, replied ok we'll deliver sometime after you are back. When will sometime be? Couldn't possibly say right now - delivery van broken down on motorway  ::)

So it's lovely weather and apart from a trip to physio, I have to wait in for Tescos *sob*

Got it  :D

Could be a nice afternoon to be sitting outside waiting for a Tesco delivery.  After the spring we have had I would advise extreme caution about gardening in 22C heat.  From mudlarking in the rain straight into summer days  :ohmy:  We will all be in shock  :lol:

Mother Lard's old one - I don't so much mind the cleaning of the faceplates , they're 70's MK so built like tanks it's the rolling around on the floor now it's an awfully long way to get up again  ::)

I've had to do a few hours of real work today  :ohmy: but I have my eye on a quiet 2 hours late afternoon , Need a change of clothes though - it was big coat and thermal hat weather went I left the house this morning - it's not any more  8)

Mornings, it's a lovely sunny one, so deffo a plot visit on the cards.
If I can still move after that I might pop into town and take the library books back - rather than hit the renew button again  :lol:

A lovely summer day!  At last ... Enjoy while we can.  I was shattered last night - just not used to it!

All seeds checked and now a quick trip to the shops (was supposed to just be Aldi but now I have a brake light to collect, and some sealant and ...... why exactly did I say I was going?  ::) ) before an afternoon with the seed box and pricking out (in the the shade!).  Perhaps I better get some more compost while I am out..  :unsure:
