***takes y-fronts off my head,extracts pencils from nostrils,stops saying "wibble".......... Who's mad?!

Just got in myself,was a bit distracted in the workshop making a surprise pressie for when Carly gets here Friday and forgot to eat all day. Did manage to rotovate the second veg bed in preparation for Giant Japanese Knotweed,companion planted with Nettles and Pampas Grass. Also discovered one of my non-laying chickens has blue eyes,so named her Frank.  Plans for tomorrow?? Sounds like ya need a rest!

I have given today up as a bad lot....

Was raining all morning,so I only got to plant seeds up and add finishing touches to Carly's pressie in the workshop.

Waited around for the interminable French 2 hour lunchtime,when it was sunny,but I didn't want to get my clean clothes all dirty ripping out fences.

Went shopping and returned in clear skies,changed,grabbed the first bit of fence wire to pull out,and it hailed.Not just any hail,this stuff hurt even with a hat on and it was horizontal!  So,now I've come inside,put the kettle on,lit the fire and am going to have a "me" afternoon!

Strangely,as I am about to hit the "post" button,the sun is out again.
