Just A Squirt

DSC_8842

It’s such a nice day, where would be better to spend it, other than the tip.

DSC_8849

The tip with the reuse shop.

DSC_8847

I start to unload Erde, the smallest amount of rubble I have ever brought so far.

DSC_8857

Back at home, I have levelled the base off and put down the much cheaper than the front of the house membrane.

DSC_8882

It is now ready for a top layer of sand and then the pea shingle.

DSC_8881

So for week it needs to look like this.

DSC_8879

Yep when this is down and then finally the block paving next to the back door, this is going to look smart.

DSC_8880

I’m going to need 44 more black blocks.

DSC_8854

It was so nice outside I decided to get the mower out and do next doors garden. So neat now.

DSC_8861

Which infused me to do my own.

DSC_8871

Slowly the building soil is disappearing.

DSC_8878

And things are looking much better.

DSC_8863

And due to the warmth things are growing.

DSC_8864

I wonder how the cold is going to effect them?

DSC_8866

Nice bunch of flowers here where nothing normally flowers.

DSC_8870

I so love my garden. And right now it looks so nice for winter.

DSC_8873

And this year my snow drops have come up finally.

DSC_8858

My hanging basket is full if flowers.

DSC_8883

I go upstairs to get changed and have one more look.

DSC_8885

On my way out I pick this part up.

DSC_8886

Apparently they make all the difference.

DSC_8898

And head to my parents in the MX5.

DSC_8889

There I pull out the washer nozzles on my 5.

DSC_8891

And insert the ford ones.

DSC_8893

Will they make the difference?

DSC_8896

I just give it a squirt, oh wow, so much better.

DSC_8900

And they dribble down the bonnet like the old ones.

DSC_8903

And with that I have tea and go home.

Threecycle

DSC_8830

I wasn’t doing this, I had considered doing this, but then considered that today should be an relaxing day.Afterall I was having my mom in the morning and going shopping and having some dinner with her. Last night though, I had thought to myself, one more advert on Freecycle can't do any harm. And at 3:30pm I had someone how would take 12 of the slabs. And so the scruffs quickly went on to pull the last few I was planning to tip, and then leave them at the front of the drive. When some came to collect them shortly after they turned up in a Citreon C1. Oh wow.

DSC_0001

I helped arrange the car so that the seats would fold down, and the car took 6, due to the weight. And in the aid of getting rid of them I went to their place to help unload. I don’t think they realised how heavy they were going to be. Two trips later and I have the square patch opened up.

DSC_0002

I take the moment to open up the border and flea quickly to ASDA to get some compost.

DSC_0003

Hopefully with a bi more soil the plants in this border will do better.

DSC_0009

Rather than persevere.

DSC_0008

I put some feed on the roses that's going to have to last them.

DSC_0007

Grow well my friend, grow quickly.

DSC_0011

Yes plans, got to sort out the fence and gate.

DSC_0012

Note really looking forward to doing that.

DSC_8832

So on my shopping spree I got a few things.

DSC_8834

I’m at that age where I can go brown.

DSC_8835

And some new bed linen will be nice.

DSC_8836

And yeah, this will be great for the spring.

Number Two

DSC_8812

I get home and Rose two appears, which is a pain as I’ve just requested the seller to advise where it has got to.

DSC_8811

Lets hope it grows, I stick it into a bucket of water for the night, and go for a walk.

DSC_8826

Sometime later I’m at the venue.

DSC_8814

The Scene is set.

DSC_8815

The sauces are here.

DSC_8818

And following the chilli packora I have a Tawa. Although this one is quiet wet.

DSC_8822

Not that it matters.

DSC_8824

So dam yummy.
