It's always the case of everything seems to come at once and you have all these carefully laid out plans which end up totally cocked up by one thing and another and then things over run and you don't have time to complete and then one thing runs into the next and you forget to breather and before you know it you lost a couple of weeks before you manage to accomplish anything at all......notice there was nowhere to breathe in that bit?? Yeah life was kind of like that for a couple of weeks...a little bit of a whirlwind with a lot of cursing and swearing but hopefully that is now all a thing of the past and things are looking up!!
Except the fact that I don't have any photos of what I have been up to so you will have to take my word for it and enjoy another excuse for me to show off Trojan!!
|My Beautiful Trojan.|
So Sunday afternoon my Dad and I went to felt the roof....bought a good quality felt...plenty long enough...got the felt tacks...than I cut one piece too long which left the last piece to short. This is where I really want to scream!!!
Anyway after we put up the first two pieces I realised we could split the final piece down the middle and it would still give an overlap...finally something was going in my favour. So the felting got finished and now not only do I have a shed but one that won't leak although it isn't finished yet but the extras are something that can be done as and when I have a bit of spare time.
Obviously I then needed to transport stuff and I can tell you it is lovely to have my garden back again as it really was beginning to resemble a scrap yard. I now also have a greenhouse I can get into to sow seeds as does my Mum who was also storing some stuff for me.
Of course on top of all that the weather has been nice at times and I have managed to make a start on weeding and digging the allotment plot too and will be hoping to get some things planted this coming weekend. Oh it's all starting to come together and I am feeling happy about what I have achieved. Hey I even got a larger proportion of the bug hotel done.
All the warmer weather is making the bees very happy and busy too!!
So that's all I have for now...I will take lots of photos and share them over the next 3 or 4 days....and at least then you won't have to listen to me whinging any more.
What I haven't managed to do is keep up to date with everyone's blogs but I will hopefully be putting that right over the next few days.
