Good morning everyone, I woke up to and a bad case of muscle-ache today. I've been working almost non-stop at the lotty for the last 2 days, it was gruellingly hot (it got up to 30 degrees yesterday ) and I've only got about halfway through all the weeds. It wouldn't normally take this long but there's a weed that needs pulling out roots and all, if not it spreads like wildfire and tangles up around the roots of all my plants. Not sure what it's called, but it should be called something like Devils Noose or The Mat of Death!
Hiya AT, *wave* long time no read! Good to hear you're being kept busy at work but still get time to go camping! I hope you've also had time to sort out your next uni job/course s well!
I'm looking foward to your pics Susiq, can you throw in some of the garden at the cottage as well please? LOL - was almost tempted to buy a courgette plant yesterday but remembered just in time how many courgettes I was offered by neighbours last year, so I passed. I did buy 10 sweet corn plug plants and a couple of cabbages and some delphs and daisies for the already overfull flower beds. I hope we get a dry spell today so I can plant them out.
Morning to you too Sis, I think I'll take a leaf out of your book and have a lazy Sunday too! It'll be good to give my skin a rest from all that sun, despite all my efforts I've got a bit of sunburn as well, mainly my back. I use a sunblok chapstick on my nose, works like charm and easy to (re)apply and it doesn't melt into your eyes and burn like normal suncream often does.
It's still raining, so think I'll sow the pumpkins and tidy up the balcony. And maybe, a very big maybe!, do some admin, the mail has been stacking up for weeks now...
