Friday Again

How quickly Friday comes around. And the first of May .   Not a lot done today except the month's bills sorted and paid and a couple of letters which have been waiting a day or two answered.   Doing jobs like this is actually quite satisfying I find - typing the letter, filing it, putting the original in its envelope, addressing it, stamping it and walking over the road to the post box, which is opposite my bungalow, and posting it.   Job done.

Then, sitting at my computer I heard a strange noise and after listening, puzzled, for a few minutes, I got up and went to the window.   And, yes, as it always is, it was D - the man who keeps my garden trim - cutting the lawns.  The man from the council came this morning and mowed the grass verge opposite (you may remember earlier in the week I photographed the thousand or so dandelions growing there).   For at least a couple of days there will not be a dandelion to be seen - either on my lawn or on the verge.  (sorry bees)

A whole  hour's gardening with Monty Don on television this evening - bliss.   Half an hour before it starts so just time to make myself a cup of something and settle down to enjoy it.  Until tomorrow.....virtual coffee morning at ten.

At the beginning of lockdown I thought how dreary life might be, but it has turned out to be quite the opposite. My days are spent in a mixture of daily chores, a walk and then some leisure activity, and the weeks just fly by. The only thing that is different is the lack of visitors, which is the same for everyone of course.

Friday does come around quickly, doesn't it? You would think with the isolation the days would drag but that has not been the case for me. I stay quite busy but I can't always tell you at the end of the day what all I have done! Take care and enjoy your weekend.

The one thing that I find a real pain in this lock down business is the loss of freedom to be able to nip out to various shops when I need to, especially the garden centres, which I would normally visit quite a bit at this time of year. Oh, and the fact that my hair is now starting to take on a cave man look and the fact that when barbers do re-open there will be long queues.
It's a shame that your council isn't conservation minded, down here now, a lot of councils refrain from cutting verges until well in to the summer in order to give the bees and butterflies a helping hand. They have also joined with local bee societies in creating "bee roads" whereby long stretches of verges and other waste areas are planted and seeded with nectar producing flowers.

Yes, April gone already! It was a very warm and sunny month here mostly, now with the arrival of May, it has become chilly and grey, with some of that long awaited rain.

I am learning to love dandelions as we have the same problem with a patch of council grass! The sun has appeared here this morning might be a nice weekend. x

Derek - Join the club - my hair ias terrible but I have no idea how to deal with it - it is at least thirty years since I washed my own hair.
