What do you want first....Okay
Bad news... No luck on the interview I went for... thought I was a wonderful candidate etc etc blah blah blah not enough power point was the only concrete bit... BAH
Good news? I still have my own hair and teeth! Bah boom ;O)
Anyway - got down to the allotment on Saturday. Was a bit on the chilly side - I wore (I swear this is true) knee length socks, a vest top, a long sleeved thin top, a long sleeved thick top, jeans, a jumper and a scraggy old cardi-jacket type thing that I have kept for gardening purposes. I looked like a fat robin!
I measured the plot - its about 100m by 20m and took some "before pics" So I can be a bit geeky and do a proper plan. I've got to have something to ignore.... surely! Then I finished the bed that I had started and got halfway down another. I'm so pleased. My brother thought that we wouldn't be able to manage a whole plot but I think that a few weeks hard work now and it will look like a completely different space. Did about four hours and only left when the light was fading. There were other people there too :oO two of them - obviously a new plot.
Fell into a scalding hot bath when I got home and put my PJs on immediately. Had my soup in front of the TV. FAB.
I had visitors too... a black bird, a robin and a scraggy looking black and white cat. The birds came for the worms and I think the cat came to watch. I went again on Sunday - took Mr B to look and the brother came too. Mr B and I cleared up the dead beans still on the poles and took the poles down and the brother dug two beds over (I say dug but I can't be sure that its done properly as it only took him an hour.... hmmmm will inspect next week and perhaps go over it myself).
More good news - I got more seeds popping up aplenty in the heated propogator! 2 of my chillies AT LAST! An AR Hot and a Hot Rainbow! Also three cabbages and two caulis YAY.... Can't wait. Meant to pot up my tomato's but was knackered!
Films of the week -
127 hours - Brilliant - Superbly acted - Go see it. Wonderful. Lots of black humour which I didn't expect.
Black Swan - Dark, dark and darker - Good though worth watching.
Anyway - must go. Am at "work" Chat soon X
PS: - I will post pics as soon as I have figured out how to plug in my camera to the new computermebob.
