Brr, it`s gone chilly again, after 2 days of glorious warm sunshine.
So, here`s what occured this morning;
Hubby had gone for weekly grocery shop at Asda (yes, ok, Tesco, Sainsbury`s, Morrisons, Waitrose, Aldi and Lidl can have a mention too, so no-one sues me), and Bev, my morning carer was here.
In our back garden, we have a large wooden based plant bed, which has yielded us potatoes and strawberries, but no longer, as it is very much favoured by the felines in our area…as a public litter tray! This is much to little Lucy
s annoyance. They sit on the fence looking down at her, with a look that says, You yappy little dog, you can`t get me from there``, before they saunter on as if they own the street. She goes bonkers charging up and down the drive, wishing she had a catapult to fire missiles at the beasts! Sorry to you cat lovers!
So, back to the bed area…I
d asked hubby to remove the topsoil and put gravel on it and I would add my various garden ornaments to look at. So he did that yesterday, despite his aching feet and knees due to his dratted RA. But er indoors` (me) kept nagging him to do the job. Poor lad, he fetched and carted and distributed 10 bags of stones. I thought it would take 2 or 3! Huh! Then he painted the whole thing…looked lovely!
So, he was out this morning, when I decided I wanted to arrange the ornaments…I dont have any gnomes, by the way! Well the rotary washing dryer was full of stuff and I steered my way through it all, with a cute little 3 doggy ornament that says
Welcome. On the way back, i got caught up in the towels and in an effort to free myself, didnt look where I was steering and within a trice, the whole damned thing fell on top of me! I tried to push it back, but the main pole was twisted and bent. I shouted for bev to rescue me. I knew hubby wouldnt be at all pleased with me, so I said
Quick. Take it down for me and hide it behind the garage.
She obliged and we giggled at what i`d done. Then we put the indoor airer on the deck and I hung the washing on it.
Hubby came home, just as I was doing it. He looked to where it should be hanging and I jumped in saying,
Oh I thought the garden would look nicer without the dryer. he smiled and said,
Yes, love, it does!
t found the broken airer behind the garage........yet! I expect ill have to own up sometime!
Innit a chuff…
cos there was a time when I couldve done it all by myself without a problem. Chuffin` thing this SP is!
