Well, where do I start?
We did the cutting back, despite the cold rain, but the planting of the garlic has been delayed because I fell asleep in front of the TV last night instead of going shopping. As for the forcing of the rhubarb, that can wait till I warm up. And while I’m being honest, we didn’t exactly do all the cutting back, but there is a lot of it, and that rain was cold.
However, though the list of outdoor jobs may look like a bit of defeat I have been industrious inside, making up the calendar for 2016; tidying the files on the computer and selling half a lamb. I’ve also transferred 50 sheep photos ready for one of the girls to do a sheep scrapbook, proof read some other sheep stuff; tried to link a lap top to the wi-fi and taken a leading part in demolishing the pile of chocolate and cakes that people have brought in to eat up after Christmas.
Now I’m blogging with a clearish conscience, knowing that I have at least filled in my time, even if I haven’t filled it exactly with what I had intended.
It’s a start.
I could post some cold, grey photos of rain, but I’ve gone for butterflies and bright colours instead. Look at them and remember summer!
