First of all a big welcome to a new follower - Debra She Who Seeks, thank you for joining Debra, I hope you will find some stuff to interest you here as I am at your blog.
I don't have many followers, but I cherish the ones I do have - thank you all.
Anyway, so it has been a wasted day. I hate waste of any kind, be it money, food, materials that can be recycled, or time.
I think it becomes more relevant as you get older, how precious time is. When you are younger, you tend to put stuff off, you can always do it tomorrow, next week, next month or next year, but you don't have that luxury when your time clock starts to tick a little faster !
I had this 'rude awakening' when my parents died within 3 months of each other. My own mortality hit me like a tank ! Since then I have been 'driven' and need everything done yesterday, it's a realisation that you don't have 'all the time in the world' and if you want to do 'things' then you had better shift your arse and get a move on !
My, this post is getting a bit heavy - moving swiftly on.
I'm just beginning to get orders for my craft items, I planned yesterday to get all the mundane stuff out of the way so I could spend today crafting - bliss. But the powers that be had other plans, my sewing machine packed up !
Oh *+"/%^&+* !! all my creative juices were spilling out onto the floor - not a pretty picture I know.
Sooo, cats fed and medicated, instruction book to hand, zillions of Googles on what to do, I finally got it !
After adjusting this, replacing that, going through the instruction book eleventy nine times, and finally bashing it with a hammer (OK that's not quite true - close though) it finally came together and is now whole again, which is more than can be said for me.
My poor old brain cell is so tired having to sort everything out and solve all lifes problems, so if you have a partner who knows the difference between a screwdriver and a pork pie - may I borrow him please ? I promise I will treat him well, ply him with tea and chocolate hob nobs and return him in one piece ! cherish him ladies, he is worth his weight in gold !
So I am now totally drained and unable to achieve anything else today. So I will show you some pics of my 'potted' garden which is feeding me very well thank you. Actually it was my intention to do some tidying up outside today, but I need to lie down in a darkened room now and start afresh tomorrow.
Pics of my potted garden:
Some curly kale I planted in pots - should give me a few meals
Runner beans in pots
the tops of the same runner beans producing pods up the side of the garage
These are chick peas ! grown in pots in a conservatory pot holer
Here are my 'free' tomato plants, because last year I just chucked the old tomato plants into the compost bin, and this year they sprouted !
I'm short of space here, so when these beans reached the top of the canes, I didn't want to 'stop' them so I just 'laid' another cane across and rested it on the fence, hopefully it will reward me with more beans !
a bit of a mixture in here ..... non edible I think.
OK then, I'm off to catch up on the terrible news about Syria - not a cheerful note to end on, but we have to face it
take care peeps ..........
