Busy day

One of those days when everything happens - pretty shattered by now.  My builder recommended I get a humidifier and put in the bedroom now that the new soakaway is finished, so I did that and as I type this I hear it buzzing away.

My replacement gardener (my usual one is ill) M came (he cut the lawn yesterday) and replanted my pots by the front door with violas, polyanthus and daffodil bulbs for winter and also planted the last forty or so dwarf daffodils in my front shrubbery.
Two jobs which I am pleased to get done. 

Then at tea time my decorator came to look at the damp in the bedroom (my new soakaway is just outside) and was very positive about it all (thus taking the weight off my shoulders).

Now it is almost time for Gardeners' World - just time to go and check on my humidifier.   See you all tomorrow.

It sounds as if everything is turning out well. How nice to get rid of those niggling worries. All we need now is some nice dry crisp weather and for everyone in Parliament to play nicely for a time.

I wish!

Sounds promising. We have a dehumidifier. It is certainly useful with our damp climate.

I bet you could identify with the Horse Tail problem that Francis had on her allotment and what a lovely place that Cotswold Wildlife Park was.

It sounds like a nice quiet evening after a busy day.

It sounds like you are getting everything sorted. I'm sure the humidifier will do the trick and it will be all systems go on the decoration.

No rush. I would probably go years before doing the re-decoration, if ever. At least it would be clear whether it was dry or not and the drainage work had done the trick. Just relax.

Derek Faulkner said...

I think Rachel has got the right idea. I'd probably spend all winter looking at it and thinking about and then in the Spring do something else.

I think I mentioned before that there's a little electronic gadget that can be held against the wall to measure it's dampness.
Don't forget to empty the collected water out of your buzzing machine. You might be amazed how much water they can collect.

That's a positive day, wondering what outdoor plants to get to provide colour in winter

I hope they have figured out the damp problem. Not much you can do now.
What lovely flowers you have planted. Just think Spring will be wonderful.
