I have to have a quick grumble about the heat (not that there is any point), it got to me yesterday. I spent the morning at the travel agents which addled my brain and then walked around town in the sun. I don't like hot weather. Ok, grumble over. It's not so sunny today which makes the heat more tolerable and I can bear my own company again.
Garden has had some tlc now and it looks better already. Paths are mown and hopefully by the end of the day I can say the 'lawns' have been mown too. I even planted some seeds - spring onions, rocket, climbing princess beans and parsnip- from saved seeds. I like freebies, well almost freebies in this case. Just have to keep the water up to everything which during summer is the hardest part of gardening here. I love gardening so it's not a chore at all to spend time outside in my special space.
What else has been happening the past few days? Not much really. It's holiday mode here so we pretty much don't have a schedule to follow and our days are our own. Too hot for craft, too hot for baking. Too hot for tomato sauce making but I have a batch simmering on the stove regardless.
I think I am still working my head and heart around not having Grace here too. But I have my trip booked in so I will see her in under six months. Hooray. I can't quite believe that I will be travelling so far from home and on a plane too.
