Shall we go for April

I feel a little nervy this morning. I live my life by precise instructions. Not completely tied to the clock you understand but to get things done I have to work by a list. 

My alarm goes off at 6 am each morning, I rise, shower & walk the hound. I have a hat of some description on my hair, the orange glow in the dark jacket Mike brought home for me & off we pop.

I look rather like the health & safety version of Worzel Gummidge 

We hear the birds sing, the scuttles of small animals in the hedges, meet the odd dog walker & I gaze at the stars in the sky. 

It's my time of peace & tranquillity - Mike woke up early this morning & took the dog for a walk & it's put me out of sync - there is chocolate cake in the fridge - I may have some for breakfast.

Just so the universe finds it's balance you understand! 



Back to April 

After having a further discussion on about the veg garden last night I've asked told Mike I want it sorted by April.

Mike has his four day break towards the end & it will then be ready for the new growing season.

I'm feeling rather nervy excited now, I can start sowing some veg seeds soon! 

Take care all xx

  1. I've asked told ( I lolled at that! ) the HG I want yards of mosquito netting surrounding every living thing in my garden this year. I'm determined we will eat my hard grown veg, not the caterpillars!

  5. I will hold the Worzel image in my mind when I exit the house tomorrow morning with Ben, he will be resplendent in his burgundy fleece lined coat. I will have my old walking boots, a full length waterproof coat of indeterminate colour with a hat, scarf and gloves in a mix of bright colours.

  7. Funny how a little change in routine can throw you out of sync. You have a nice looking garden spot. I'm so ready for spring!!

  8. I prefer routine. Let's hope we have a good spring so we can all get sowing and growing. Flighty xx

  9. Love how you balanced it out with chocolate cake for breakfast - only seems fair after all to restore order to the world :) Your blogs always put a smile on my face! I look forward to seeing how the new veg beds progress! x

  10. I'm exactly the same, I get out of sync if my morning routine changes. Looking forward to following your progress with the new veg plot, it's all very exciting.

  11. I get totally off kilter when my husband decides he's taking a day off and is there in my way from the very get-go. But those days don't usually have chocolate cake in the fridge :(
    Your walks sound really nice, I just let the dog out the back door first thing and walk later (only because I can). Glad your veggie plot is about to be planted (already!!).

  12. I know exactly what you mean about your routine I have my morning routine too which is similar to yours but it starts a bit later. I too am put out when it doesn't happen. Having your garden sorted for the new growing season sounds a great plan

  13. I am a "routine-oriented" person too. I suffer from Fibromyalgia, and one if its symptoms is excessive worrying about unfamiliar situations, so a good routine helps to keep things under control.

  14. I like my routines, too. It is a comfort thing rather than an absolute need and I try to embrace changes as they happen.

  20. Sarah wakes me at 6.45. It's too early, and I cry out for a lie in.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Chocolate cake and a lie in, could be a good thing xx

  22. I am still working on my new routine, but I do like a routine! Although chocolate cake for breakfast, yeah, I could break the routine for that! Perhaps not on the first day of lent though for me! xx

  23. Those quiet early moments are wonderful aren't they. I'm glad you have a date in mind for your garden alterations, it will be just in time for the new growing season. Perfect. Hope you enjoyed the chocolate cake! CJ xx

  24. Chocolate cake for breakfast - now that sounds like a plan! I'm an early bird too and love the quiet first thing. Good luck with the veggies. xx

  26. I like a routein in the morning to well the dogs do that's for sure. Chocolate cake for breakfast and why the heck not life is to be enjoyed :-) dee x

  27. Don't be tempted to sow too soon. I think that we don't have a routine but thinking about it maybe we have a loose one.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would have that cake and a cup of tea and enjoy my time inside, warm and cozy.
    Hugs,

  29. Yes, I find that I get myself into a very fixed routine and get cross when I get pushed out of it!! Cake sounds like a good antidote :-)

    It's that time of year isn't it when us gardeners have twitchy green fingers. Every bit of sunshine sees me looking longinly at seed trays and bags of compost over in the polytunnel, but I am going to sit on my hands (once I've finished typing of course) and wait until at least the end of the month before sowing anything. We have some really cold nights in February and even March and seedlings would wither and die in the blinking of an eye if I go ahead now.

  30. I hope you enjoyed your breakfast sounds good to me, I need my routines too or I'm all to pot. I'm pleased you have all your seed sewing plans in place. :) xx

  31. I thought I'd left you a comment already but obvs having a senior moment :o) Routine being wonky wobbles me about too, but having the garden to think about it surely a significant restorative power. Hope all's well xx

  32. I have a rhythm but no routine perhaps that is where I am going wrong.......yeah for getting the garden sorted, roll on April!

  33. I shall be thinking about chocolate cake all day now! Hope you are back to your routine again this morning. Excited too about starting my seed sowing. My favourite time of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Chocolate breakfast cake? Sounds like a plan. I would love to be sowing at the moment, but it's a little soon. It's fine for the greenhouse/light-type gardeners, but since I don't have those luxuries, I will be holding off sowing for a few weeks yet. Enjoy it when the time comes!

  35. I am more than ready for the growing season as I didn't get up to much with it last year...maybe this weekend I will even look inside my seed boxes...after all I can't grow without seeds!!
