We've been blessed with a few gloriously sunny days here at the caravan park.
The flowers are all looking glorious, blossom is appearing on trees and the birds are singing their little heads off each morning and evening … as well as some nest squabbles but we won't go into that!!
My £2.49 replanted pot of Primulas from Aldi are looking gorgeous and have been flowering away here for three weeks now. Picking the spent flowers off as they go limp means they flower for a l o n g time.
The little Tete a Tete daffodils planted in the old bread bin are just starting to look a little tired, but their cheery yellow heads are still making me smile every time I walk back up to the Van. Beneath them I can see the first stirrings of the Mint that is also planted in the bread bin, ready to come up in a couple of weeks.
The tulip bulbs that I planted in the little tin bath are looking so strong and chunky but with no sign of flower heads yet. Once my Courgette seedlings come through in the polytunnel back home in Wales I will bring a couple of plants to add to this bath, maybe by then there will be a bit of colour in here. Although what colour I don't know as I can't find the label that went with the tulip bulbs!!
The grass needs cutting again, and I'm hoping that it will stay dry until tomorrow so I can give it another cut without struggling too much. The dogs really don't like this grass when it's even slightly long for some reason, I think perhaps the soil beneath it is just very cold and wet.
Today I'm taking advantage of the sunshine and getting a bit of handwashing dried. A day in the sunshine means that by teatime when I bring it in it should be almost dry. It takes a long time to drip dry indoors in the Van because it's only wrung out by hand, so a day when it can sit in the little garden is always a bonus worth snapping up.
There are lots of folks splitting their days into timetables and trying to keep themselves busy, I had an urge to do this .... but thank goodness it passed!! Instead I have decided each day try to do four things, something productive, something in the fresh air, something cooked or made from scratch and something I love to do.
If I were to make myself a list each day then, this is what todays list would look like -
Productive - the washing.
Fresh Air - 2 doggy walks.
Something Cooked or Made from Scratch - a big batch of hummus to last me the week.
Something I Love - watch a film on DVD this afternoon.
Some days it could be four really good things, other days it could simply be - wake up, open a window, stick a potato in the microwave and watch television. It doesn't really matter but I'm just trying to give myself a little bit of encouragement to do something.
