This week I’ve mainly been pottering around the house and garden. Mostly due to the very unseasonal weather! There was nothing pottering or pattering about the rain over Bank Holiday Monday, wasn’t it awful?
So I’ve been doing all those “little jobs” that you never normally get round to, tidying sock drawers, deadheading the tulips, sorting out the bathroom cabinets, those sort of things.
On Sunday I spotted some brambles starting to grow within the hedge at the front of the house. I have a longstanding battle with them. However, as these things do, it soon escalated into removing dead branches – and dead brambles – which then led me to spot a massive bramble right near the middle of the hedge. I couldn’t get at it all but it’s considerably shorter! Filled the green bin up. I shall leave it now till the autumn.
Because the school I work at is used as a Polling Station I had yesterday off! it was lovely. I went into town, I don’t go that often as there isn’t much there, but I decided to get all the remaining birthday cards for the year. According to the woman in the shop I’m not the only one. I went to the out of town shopping park to get Sir some socks and then to Aldi. Home for a coffee and more pottering until the Ocado order came. Oh and I voted too. Hubby and I took a walk at lunchtime.
I really didn’t think I’d done a lot this week but it seems the pottering adds up!
