Today has been all about the garden, as I’ve mentioned before the garden is very overgrown through years of neglect and this weekend was the weekend it started to get sorted.
A couple of friends had said they could come over to today so I got up quite early to bake a few sweet treats for them and to get all the tools out the shed. We started at 10am and finished about 4pm and got a far bit done.
We managed to clear all of the stinging nettles on the left handside of the garden, along the back and made a good start on the raspberry canes. As well as mending the back fence which has lost a couple of panels & falling over.
As I type this I’m in bed utterly exhausted, I’ve still got my cold so this was quite a challenge for me today but glad I pushed through, I haven’t got a clue what I’ll with the garden once it’s cleared but least I’ll have a blank canvas so to speak and can start from there.
For the last couple of weeks, if you hadn’t noticed I’ve been feeling a little defeated by the challenge I had set myself so starting the garden has really helped me to see what I want to achieve in the long term and also a little help from friends can move you on faster than you can go on your own. NOTE TO SELF: As for help me!!
