The sun was out and it was a bit cold but I went outside and attacked the laurel bush by the gate. There were flurries from little birds looking to see whether I’ve got any food for them. I pulled up a few spindly spiky brambles too and pruned the bush beside the mahonia by the greenhouse. I also repositioned some of the slabs over the muddy area I’ve dug up for the slabs. (We’ve never had cash to pay for the limestone/sand/cement needed to lay the patio. I still need a job if anyone has any suggestions?)
I’ve seen a lot of articles about people working to be the people to administer vaccinations. A lot seem to be doing it as a second job which seems wrong when so many people have lost jobs. I wasn’t keen to do this kind of job to be honest, and maybe they needed enthusiasm over anything else.
I have pulled out a load of brambles, which were growing through lots of areas I thought had been cleared. I pulled out those couch grass clumps from the raised bed. I’ve yet to pull out one of the compost bags to add to the bed. I felt ok moving the slabs so perhaps my weakness last year is diminishing. Here’s to a productive and pro-active year!
