Wow - what a difference a day makes.
Yesterday morning we were up before the sun and were surprised by this ....
This snow and the following heavy rain meant an indoors day (good I thought - think of all those chores which need doing and often get blatantly ignored...) So I sewed instead!
My work trousers, although retailed as 'women's workwear', still needed altering. Despite the added elasticated waist band either on the hips or at the back I still have to take the waist in. One set, as a token nod to 'female' clothing was covered in the brightest pink labels - they were the first to be removed! Gah - I can feel' my hackles rising as I type this. Why - WHY do they add pink labels to prove that these are indeed for women FFS.
Any hoo, where was I? Oh yes, trousers. I then had to take the hems up, although I ordered three pairs, one navy and two black and despite all being the same, two of them needed moderate shortening and one was so long I actually had to cut off a huge chunk before I could turn them up? (so, pink labels AND shoddy work)...
Then, as a nod to my inner artistic streak and to my non-conformist dress sense - I started to embellish the left leg in a sketchy Sashiko style stitch - you know, just because.
Now : today is grey, damp and cold.
Any hoo - I still need to complete the up-scaled drawing of the walled kitchen garden - I've laid it out on a large drywipe board. The hard landscaping is in permanent ink and the instructions will be in drywipe. There wasn't a very good crop rotation put into place with nearly every bed having nearly every variety of vegetable planted in it.
I still need to add the orchard and add all the pruning and rotational planting details then it will go back to work. It certainly has kept me quiet for a couple of days! All that remains is for me to try and squeeze it back into my car, when I brought it home there was only me as Moss was at home. It is going to be a tight fit!
Bit later ...
Moss and I have just returned from a dripping and sodden garden. I popped into my glasshouse and am quietly pleased to see things have survived and indeed thrived and I suspect as soon as the weather warms, they will romp on. Right - enough waffling, that garden plan won't draw itself and that mug of tea is going cold - have a good Wednesday and see you all on Friday!
