I get up and wash and put something on for breakfast.
As I look outside I see it is perfect drive building weather.
I do some menial tasks and then have an early morning builders tea break.
I sit down and my eyes wander around the garden.
For some reason up this corner the garden thinks its spring.
We have a small abundance of rose flowers.
Delicate and fully matured.
I also spot dinner hanging on a branch.
Some things though have just come too late. But a notable try.
I wander back towards the work area and get back on with it.
More soil moved.
and the front edging strip goes from this
to this. Now fully concreted it, at least I’ll be able to drive over it.
Time though to mix some more and to start stage two.
I get the cover up.
And lay the edging strips in a straight line.
Many hours later it is done, and then covered in case a frost forms.
I am pleased with the effort today.
And at the end of it, not a lot may have looked to have changed. But it has.
Time to mop the floor.
and have a relaxing bath, I ache everywhere.
Then eventually I see what there is to eat. Ah you can tell my dad has been here helping me. Two scones have gone and it wasn’t me.
