Well, the great surprise this year, is that weather has been (and is forecasted to be) SUPERB – mid 20s round here, which suits us perfectly. Whereas the rest of mankind is getting away from it all, we’re staying-put and doing some jobs around the garden. The new pressure-washer that I bought yesterday has already earned its keep by making light work of cleaning the patio stones in the back-garden – so that’s a good start.
The cleaning job that we weren’t looking forward to was cleaning the pond – a job that needs to be done annually, but in reality, gets put off for as long as possible, because it’s such a dirty and smelly job – yuk! Anyway, 25 buckets of smelly sludge (transported by hand to a handy drain located in the front garden) and a couple of hours later, it was ‘job done’ and we sat back to admire our work. Part of the satisfaction is knowing that we don’t have to do it for another year!!!
So, all that was left to do today was to sit back, enjoy a cool drink, and soak up some sun.
What a great day!!!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
