Another quiet day at home, but it rained most of the day so no work in the garden. I am interested to see how the new patio fairs with rain on top of the sand. Continue reading 24th April 2017
A quiet Sunday, spent in the garden.
Today I did the first mow of our lawn – wellI call it lawn but it’s just a couple of patches of grass. I always leave it until the grass is already growing well before I do the first cut, as otherwise I might kill off all the new shoots. I had to reseed some of the lawn last years as it didn’t start to grow whilst we were removing the hedges, which in turn meant that it wasn’t getting any sunlight. Some of it has grown well, but there are still some bald patches. Continue reading 23rd April 2017
This was another big ringing day. First however P. and I went into King’s Lynn for a cooked breakfast and a quick visit to some shops. I had intended to take the two unused bags of sand back to B and Q, but we ran out of time as I was going out to ring this afternoon. Continue reading 22nd April 2017
Friday, and P. is out today visiting a friend and leaving me to my own devices.
I spent some time on the computer this morning, attempting to catch up with some work, and printing some photographs. Continue reading 21st April 2017
More work on the new patio today, adding more sand where it had disappeared into the gaps. Not too much of it had done so, but where it had it was almost as if the sand was falling to the centre of the earth. My guess is that the sand that the tiles were laid onto had holes in it, and sand is running out underneath the concrete in some way. Continue reading 20th April 2017
First thing today was a trip into B and Q to get some paving sand and take advantage of their ten percent Wednesday discount.
I bough three bags of sane in order to make sure that I had enough, but in practice one proved to be sufficient. Continue reading 19th April 2017
Not a good day. First, P and I had an enormous row, something that I would rather not go into here, but we very nearly broke up as a result.
Then to cap it all, when the post came it was a letter from the hospital telling me that my biopsy has proved positive and I have a small skin cancer which needs to be excised. Sometime in the next four weeks I will get the call. Continue reading 18th April 2017
Easter Monday. A quiet day for us, I had to do the regular tasks including completely clearing out the chickens, but otherwise a very uneventful day. Continue reading 17th April 2017
Easter Sunday. Today we had a fun day as we went with P’s son, his girlfriend and their two children to Holkham Hall.
There was plenty for the kids to do including a trailer ride to the walled garden which is about a mile from the hall itself. At the garden there was a treasure trail with clues to complete a crossword. When they had the answers they could exchange the finished crossword for chocolate. Continue reading 16th April 2017
Easter Saturday. We were thinking about going out today but were rather late in getting up and anyway the traffic near the coast will be terrible. Continue reading 15th April 2017
