I’ve been poorly ever since Thursday. On Thursday, the lowest point of my poorliness was dry heaving into Delilah’s shape box thinking I wouldn’t make it through the morning, let alone the rest of the day.
Anyway, today being Sunday ideas determined to feel better and walk up to see my dad. This however, is rather a long and hilly walk even for a day you are fully okay. I was not fully okay. Regrettably I cancelled my walk and never got to see my Dad – it’s been a while now. This makes me sad, but that’s another tale.
Anyway, I took it upon myself to make a start on our back yard. I call it a yard because it’s really not a garden. There is no grass and the only things that currently grows there are weeds. And the weeds grow through our half arsed attempt to make the garden better two and a bit years ago. Let me tell you, weeds are heavy. Weeds and potting soil are VERY heavy. I cleared out the back porch which was brim full of muck and old bits we had used in the garden, an old cat tree and a couple of resident spiders. I got this done when Delilah was mostly napping. I say mostly because she was sat in her coat watching me from her boss chair to start with. That was until she decided to create – and it was far to early for a publish-ish display of tiredness on her part.
So my victory of today was cleaning the most part of the garden up while fighting through what ever this poorliness is and fighting with a tired baby and oh yeah the dog who was trying to eat drain garbage (forgot to mention that bit earlier).
I’ve been on a Monty Don spree too, and I’m feeling a little inspired. I’m going to plant some herbs… maybe in the kitchen. I’m really not good at plants. The only one I’ve ever managed is an orchid. So this can be a start.
Victory will be mine!
