I had a late start today, as wel slept in till 8 am, which is unheard of on board, but I guess we both needed the sleep. Having taken Paddy for his walk, then fed him and Marmite, Keith made us Poached Eggs on Toast for our breakfast. I then got on with a second coat of Black Tile paint on the tiles behind the stove.
I then got Keith to use his wire brush on his drill to clean the flue up before giving it a coat of paint.
Whilst all the paintwork dried, it gave me another chance to do some more gardening. Keith tackled his fruit bush area, whilst I got on with the rest.
We have done a couple of days of gardening and already there is a huge difference.
The biggest problem is bindweed. It comes out of the hedgerow and covers everything. With that and the Blackberries, it has kept me busy with Keith helping.
I put some straw around the Strawberries. Sadly we have lost a few, whilst we have been away, but hopefully we will get a few more over the coming weeks.
Herb patch is looking good, although the Sage had died, so I need to get another one.
Room to start digging soon.
The garden is now getting there and we do have some wildlife living in it.
The bug log which Keith made, seems to have something now living in it. They could be solitary bees, but I have not seen anything yet, so cannot tell.
I have had a lovely day nattering with our new neighbour Maria, who we know very well and just getting back into the swing of things being home.
