I have found it really difficult to be on my own again. As you know being alone has never really bothered me, I usually enjoy my own company. But having had a houseful since May and all of a sudden I am totally alone for 12 hours a day, quite a shock really!
The advantages are the house stays tidy....... yipee!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I can do what I want at any time really. The only problem is I have a list of things to do, but don't really know where to start? So............ as I said I shall give myself this week to get used to being alone, then next week the work begins..........
so what have I got to do
In the Garden or outside
build the greenhouse, tidy the shed and find the connector for the water butt while I'm at it, sort out the front garden, repot the pots, weed the drive, jetwash the eglu before winter sets in tidy up the veg patch, plant bulbs, mow lawn, string up onions, make lids for 2 coal bunkers that need them. Go Blackberry picking.
In the House
paint the bathroom and sort out the floor in there, clean the kitchen carpet and have another go at the lounge one too,touch up paint work in kitchen, clean all upvc windows inside and out, wash front windows. I've painted the front door so it looks lovely and yellow again instead of pale and wane
Finish hug for Tori, slippers for mum, something for Madison, Zoe said she wanted a hug too. Plus all the Christmas things that need doing
Surprises for Christmas so can't say!!!
Make some more Bath Bombs!!
that is not a complete list either just how I decide what to do when I don't know, do any of them have a higher priority? No not really! Could they be left to next year? Yes, except for the Christmas stuff.
Right to continue the walk down the garden yesterday, there is still alot in flower, the sweetpeas have been wonderful this year, definately grow again
Hubby has enjoyed the Gem Squash, reminds him of 'Rhodesia' so definate for next year
The sunflowers where later this year, but as you can see the climbing french beans are still going strong, these are the ones that have grown whilst I've been up north. They are from Lottie and will be a definate, definate for next year.
Marigolds have self seeded amongst the gravel... such a cheerful flower
the old metal wash tub has been beautiful this year, I really love the red of this geranium, I think I may have a go at over wintering them, never done it before.
Remember Yolanda at Bliss well in the spring she had pots full of tulips, thats what I plan to put in these tubs, something else to add to my 'todo' list!!!!!
The old metal chicken feeder, with fuschias and busy lizzies still in bloom
Well I'm exhausted so off to put my feet up and have a coffee, care to join me? Sorry no choccy bics though!!!!!!!!!
