Today I'm going to ...
« on: March 26, 2020, 08:19 »
How we are all doing today?

I have to go to work later (food shop) but I am going to potter a bit in the garden this morning.  OH is off work for the moment.  He is going to be a temporary delivery driver for the place I work for, to help with the extra on-line orders we will be be getting.  Yesterday he did a 10 minute run and spent the rest of the day aching.  Today it was 30 minutes cycling first thing.  I asked him to go and open the gate as the bin men were due and got a plaintive 'I don't know if I can walk that far'  :lol: 

So what are you up to?  You might inspire someone else or even pick up an idea for something you have been meaning to do, but not got around to yet.  Staying active in body and mind are so important, so let's get through this together  :)

be digging a hole to put a fence repair pin in. When I've done all I can my neighbour will take over, mixing the concrete to go around it. (I know postcrete is easier, but I'm using up what I already have, rather than arrange a delivery)
Neither of us are planning to be in the garden at the same time  :lol: :lol: Sounds silly - but needs must ;)

The diminishing contents of my freezer revealed two bags of raspberries, one from last year, the other the year before, so today I'm going to make some raspberry jam (probably enough for two jars so one will be 'stockpiled', the other will be used for a buttered toast-and-jamfest!  :)

Other than that, more weeding (not fun, not exactly an inspirational idea, but necessary.)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

We have already been for a little walk round the park at the back of our house. No one there so its fine. Today Im going to continue to miss my children and grandchildren, but will enjoy carrying on sorting my shed. I will also continue repotting fuchsias and the like which are all sprouting well.
I hope that Plotfather will put a second coat of paint on the bathroom ceiling.

Today, I have re-instated my Sainsbury on-line shop.  I Haven't used it since Mum died.    Once I got into it I quite enjoyed it.   Was tricky to set up as I had forgotten my password and got locked out.  But its ok now and I have got an order for Sunday between 2 - 3pm.   Mind you, I wonder how much will arrive !!   The only other problem  I had with it is trying to check if my Nectar card is still linked.   Nightmare -   how difficult can it be !   I have given up on that for now.   If there are no points, I shall try to sort it then.  Apart from that, I am having to stay indoors waiting for a call back from SSE  !!  Take care folks.   Mrs Bouquet

I've been out and painted four fence panels with wood preserver.  Usually only do them every other year so the front ones are not due this year but needs must, it was just a touch up job really where the colour had faded or worn.  Will carry on this tiresome task, as and when the mood takes  me.  Like Plotmother missing my Grandchildren who were supposed to be coming over at Easter.

I was told that shops pick up stock for home delivery from the shelves and it was best to order early in the hay because the locusts hadn't gotten to everything yet.

After I've walked.the.dog.I'm going to dead.head the daffodils in the front garden and tidy the borders.  Then I'm going to do some embroidery,  my son, who I love.very.much, thought a cross stitch sampler  would be an ideal christening gift for.his.goddaughter. I can only work on it for an hour at a time, it's had me in tears and I am very glad.the.christening has been delayed. This afternoon I'm going in the greenhouse for a.little seed sewing.

I know Trashco pick home delivery orders overnight at the local warehouse.

I'm going to make some lunch in a bit, then head off to the plot for an hour or so.

I was told that shops pick up stock for home delivery from the shelves and it was best to order early in the hay because the locusts hadn't gotten to everything yet.
I know Trashco pick home delivery orders overnight at the local warehouse.

I think it is all change very soon on this. I have been told to ignore what my rota currently say for the next few weeks, as I may be going onto shift work, round the clock and 7 days a week. 

Hence I am trying to get the plot as ready as I can, so I can dash up there even more erratically than I do at present and shove stuff in as and when  :lol:
