Sad But True

DSC_9764

Today is not about me, its about her, the one not here. There are still things to do, mainly the things to do that were meant to be done yesterday, we can obviously blame the Germans for one of those things. I mean it is possible, but why would you design access to it so poorly? Or is it? I mean it looks a nightmare putting the front of the car into service position, but then once I had learned how to take the front of the last car off it was no big deal, just very time consuming. Here I  ask the all knowledgeable one.

DSC_9766

I don’t like the answer, so I go and ask the troll.

DSC_9768

I didn’t like that answer either so I went and cooked breakfast.

DSC_9770

This I liked.

DSC_9771

I added some flowers to the flower bed.

DSC_9772

And then marvelled at my creative.

DSC_9774

And how well I clean up afterwards.

DSC_9779

Looks good.

IMG_20190331_112905

Although you can’t always see it.

DSC_9780

Time to move the car.

DSC_9796

Ah that's better.

DSC_9798

And with that I hook up the trailer.

DSC_9799

Not for me, but for the parents. There nothing quiet like going to the tip with the roof down.

DSC_9802

Some time later, while at the parents, things get sadder and truer.

DSC_9803

It might be sad.

DSC_9804

But it is true.

DSC_9805

And in a way relaxing to do.

DSC_9803

Outside in the fresh air,

DSC_9806

Man and machine.

DSC_9807

Yeah I redid the MX5 tyres too.

DSC_9790

Sometime later the trailer is returned home.

DSC_9761

And I hack and salsh and explore some more. I might need help. Yes I do, I’m stuck again. grrrr.

If Your Ready Then I Shall Begin

DSC_9710

The weather outside looks good. It looks good and is good. Good if you like the sun and a bit of a chill. Its a chilli though that is very chilly, the type that makes your fingers cold. This stops me. This stops me wanting to do all the things I want to do. No I am mistaken.

DSC_9709

With a cardi on I make my breakfast and sit in that fresh chilly air, and the postman has been. So as I eat my breakfast I lust for a read, a rrad that wasn’t on the agenda.

DSC_9712

Now if you are sitting comfortably let me begin.

DSC_9714

Once upon a time there was a troll, who sat at the banks of a vast lake.




DSC_9715

Here though next to the lake the dwarf cherry blossom tree looks happy, where the polygana was happy until it got endlessly wet.

DSC_9716

Maybe I’ll even get a blossom or two.

DSC_9720

Even the Prius is starting to grow at last, after all these years, although its leafs are white not red. Perhaps that will happen later.

DSC_9717

Mean while, in the dew, things are looking mighty pretty.

DSC_9724

dam gorgeous

DSC_9745

and very extravagant.

DSC_9727

Even some tulips are coming up. In fact everything seams to be coming up.

DSC_9728

All I need now are five hundred chilli plants to grow.

DSC_9731

I marvel.

DSC_9740

I adore.

DSC_9722

I smile a wonder smile.

DSC_9743

Even the pear tree has decided it will grow.

DSC_9744

It will blossom.

DSC_9747

Yeah this plant is truly nice.

DSC_9718

And this year I have so many of these.

DSC_9739

The stick by the door doesn’t look alive, but then, neither do the other three.

DSC_9728

I wander from border to border.

DSC_9738

Amazed at their grace.

DSC_9736

The sharpness of their delight.

DSC_9750

And around the front, now watered the plants look happier too.

DSC_9751

You can see their sparkle of life.

DSC_9752

Their tranquillity of delight.

DSC_9748

It is though at least time to get one thing done that has come to mind.

DSC_9753

And I head to the plant stall in Rugeley we saw last week. I get some plant, I know that will make her happy.

DSC_9757

Round the parents the plan to change the thermostat on the old girl did not go to plan. Well the plan was to change it, a simple job, well that was until German engineering got in the way. You have got to be kidding me. Seriously. Instead I turn my expertise to a different job.

DSC_9756

One that does not need doing, one that isn’t a job at all, one that I just thought you know what, why not.

DSC_9759

And by dusk all 4 are done. Sad but true.

DSC_9762

Back at home, I return to what I am addicted too. Slashing and adventuring….
