Not bragging or owt, but I just completed a five minute arm workout. It's an app.
It's day one, but ya know, eventually I might have slender lean toned upper arms.....
Whilst I still have the strength in my arms, for tomorrow I probably won't be able to move them, I thought I'd type up some ramblings from my day to day non adventures.
I'm so so so so sorry to all the lovely folks whose blogs I read and comment upon for my abandonment of late! Please don't feel bereft and neglected. I just don't seem to have the time to do Any Thing lately. Work is draining every mental drop of anything out of me right now.
The weekend with Miss 22 was great. We lit the BBQ on Sunday for the first time this year. There were a few drops of rain. We ignored it. We are British. We carried on. The ensuing monsoon put out the BBQ and things were cooked indoors so the feast carried on! The HG and I sent a good six hours in the garden on Saturday. I decided that I didn't want my pots on the border where I put them last year!
This is just some of my haul. I got five new Delphs for £10. The total boot full of plants ( I look for purple flowering perennials) cost me £20
Which I think was fantastic value for money. I got some herbs too not in shot. The dahlias were free!
I replanted my delph border, I split and replanted my irises, I ripped out the pink wild geranium and replanted a purple one in its place. I, for the first time EVER, dug out all the spring bulbs and put them to dry. I think this means I'm officially a grown up! I'm keeping my blue pots and am using them dotted about the garden this year! The eagle eye amongst you may notice I've moved the chimney pot and replanted and turned the rabbit!
The bed does go all the way along to the back gate. My peonies are down that back bit and some big bushy grass thing that comes back year on year, also inherited from his Grandma. I need to get some new lanterns and put my twinkly lights out.( purple of course ) Once all the plants get going and fill in the gaps it'll look splendid! It doesn't look like six hours of work, but the soil was dug over and riddled. So far so good NDFC wise.
And now a sad bit of news. I've had to say goodbye to a faithful pair of friends that I've had for nigh on 15 years.
RIP lovely, comfy, foot slimming best flip flops in the world.I got these from Clarks and they've served me well. They are now, sadly, ex flip flops. These flip flops are no more. They turned on me. Death traps is what they are. The sole almost split in two. But
Do not despair. New footwear has been purchased. And they are so comfy. I've done what I always say but never do " I should have bought two pairs they are so gorgeous/comfy/perfect etc
I've got them in black
I've got them in blue! I might even get them in red!
So, that's me already behind now in my quest to get some housework done before work. I will come by your blogs soon. I promise I have not abandoned you! 21st July is on its way. It can't come soon enough! Just so much to do between now n then. And I don't even have to write reports anymore. I think that would have broken me, if I'd have had to do that. I'm mentally drained and operating at about 'entering Y2' standard.
Lots of love from
