Anyway my dears, I was perusing the garden this morning hosepipe in hand as the sun is shining & the pots needed a good top up. My first port of call was Mikes giant pumpkin - supposed to be giant pumpkin but I cut that off by mistake ohhhhh quite a few weeks ago now. Mike was eager for the leaves to be pruned back a bit you see & I wasn't paying attention as I was rabbiting on at him that I really didn't want to cut back so many leaves & well snip. I held up a large stalk with his prize pumpkin. The reserve one is really quite small but is a beautiful orange colour though not big enough to feed any of us :) Anyway hosepipe in hand & two little mice popped up!
I then went on to water the fruit trees & was thinking of harvesting a lettuce but a spider was eating a fly in the middle of the one I wanted so I left him/her there in peace.
Plenty of wasps about, thankfully outside not in my attic this time, I was delighted to see one trying to eat a daddy long legs in the front garden fascinating sight. The dog was debating if my attention would be off him long enough to be able to escape into the field but Harry bellowed at me on his way to the school bus stop to keep my eye on the hound so Rockys plan was foiled.
My Saturday evening didn't go to plan I felt really cold & miserable so I was wrapped up in my PJ's, dressing gown & a fleecy blanket. When I finally felt like an ice cream I couldn't find it, one of the freezers broke down in the week so Mike shovelled what food could be saved into the other one hence the need for a new one.
My granny square crochet blanket is building up nicely now I've got back into it. The basket of yarn I have to use up doesn't seem to be getting any smaller though which doesn't bode well for a new blanket pack for my birthday. I shall try & hide it somewhere!
Hope you are all well, I have a bathroom to clean, floors to mop & clothes to put away - no rest for the wicked xx
