A few reasons to be cheerful whilst madly finishing a write up! Now I can't tell you anything about the garden without bursting into tears - its trashed with all that wind - wind is not a gardeners friend - therefore anything that was growing, lets just say its NOT growing anymore. Therefore I'm not taking any pictures outt there - so time for a walk down the track to look at the wild flowers. First reason to be cheerful - walking down the track and counting 97 orchids..........all looking a bit like this.......
Finding a tenner in the washing machine, nice and soggy looking isn't it?
Anyway the machine only has my own clothes in it! Yippe that means the £10 is really mine! We have our own money up here in scotland - three banks issue notes - so they are always good to look and see which bank they are from. I'm sure it will dry out soon!
Another reason to be cheerful - collecting 8 eggs today again, the hens are still laying and watching out the back door, finding the chickens still in their summer enclosure - I let them out for a walk everyday for a couple of hours and an adventure but finally we're all getting the hang of the fact that they live in there for a bit to save my garden and my sanity! Clever old chickens........
Another reason to be cheerful - watching this silly dog - trying to run - he's more of a lounger than a runner - so when he does break speed - he's very funny.
Wellie boots all lined up in a row outside the backdoor - another very fine reason to be cheerful - the purple ones are of course on my feet!
Finally something else to be cheerful about - I'm handing in my thesis this week, the exams are nearly over for my children too and we're going ot plan our summer holiday adventure. Then I can start to think about the polytunnel. I'll finally get a wind free garden - yippee I'll get a way around this wind one way or another!!!! Now back to the books - that's my reasons to be cheerful for today. What about yours?
