|102/365: the hanging basket brackets are in position|
The best laid plans and all that! Yesterday ended up being nothing at all like I'd planned but still good, and plenty was achieved.
For a start, the weather was just not right for the photos I wanted to take. I was really wanting the extremes of bright sunshine and heavy rain but it was just dull and overcast so I'll try again another day. I think one of the others may have asked for more time as the deadline has been extended to the end of the month, so the pressure is off for now.
It was probably just as well I hadn't gone out as neighbour S texted me to say he'd made the workbench for my garage. I'm nowhere near ready in clearing the space so he has fitted it in for now and will help with the reorganising once I've finished sorting through everything. Again, the pressure is off for now so I will probably leave it until the weather is warmer. He also fitted the brackets for the four hanging baskets and he moved the pots back to their correct position. I swept the patio later on, after I'd taken the photo, so it all looks tidy for now.
I was able to finish of the meal planning and shopping list and picked up a few bits from the list when I popped to one of the smaller Tesco stores to use the cash point. I can finish of the rest of the shopping later in the week. Then the best bit of the day ... I placed orders for a couple of climbing plants and also for a couple of cardigans for the summer. I think I've also decided on the trellis planters (to replace the arches) and the replacement garden furniture although I need to save up a bit before I can order them.
Today is hopefully going to be a quiet day. I feel very tired all the time so I'm aiming for a relaxing day - it may be time to see my doctor again and see if my tablets need tweaking. G will be here to cut my hair this morning which will leave the rest of the day for relaxing and doing whatever I fancy.
