I've been busy with the Community Garden since I last posted. Despite the high winds most of the veggies seem to be surviving, (fingers crossed), although the leaves on my runner beans are a bit battered and bruised. We were supposed to be having a BBQ, facepainting for children, and instruction on bird box making as part of the day's entertainment today to celebrate the garden being open a whole year. Sadly this has been cancelled by the Housing Association due to the poor weather forecast. I hope that last scrambled sentence made sense. The picture shows one of the raised beds, which is growing well and in the background you can just see the new picnic bench that has been purchased for the garden. . . . . somewhere to sit and relax between jobs, or to sit in the sun and unwind.
Got a busy time next week, although I need to find a way to scale down, my M.E. won't take too much extra effort or stress before it kicks in and I'm beginning to feel 'stretched'.
On Monday my son will be visiting, Tuesday - I have to sort out my bedroom, which involves moving my wardrobes so the housing association can survey the damp walls. Oh joy!
On Wednesday I have asked for a meeting with my housing officer over some issues with the communal garden rulings............all very complicated and boring!
Thursday brings my diabetic yearly review, followed by a shopping trip into town. I'm going to see if I can find some food bargains in Poundland.
Friday - I want to spend some time making a few extra cards, I have a craft table at a school fair on Saturday, but could do with some extra cards for my display. I'd like to decorate a couple of scented candles to sell, and I have knitted a pair of gloves and a pencil case to see if they 'go' too. Widening my horizons as they say!
I'm also thinking of adding ads to this blog to help raise some extra cash, I've been struggling to make ends meet for some considerable time now, but this last few weeks there literally hasn't been enough money to go around. So............cheeky I know, but if you're visiting my blog could click on any ad links you see, to help me out.........Thanks!
