Another lovely spring day in Yorkshire. Some gardening has been done -mainly pricking out the first seedlings & sowing others. These are in the 'inner' greenhouse inside the polytunnel and quite snug in there. The rest of the polytunnel is ready for a dig & laying the irrigation system (a leaky hose system & yes I did pay good money for a hosepipe with holes in it!) I am reading 'Scenes from a smallholding' by Chas Griffen. Its an entertaining read & whilst some of it might be my pipe dream there are some great gardening/ veg growing ideas and experiences. On the subject of small holdings and self sufficiency (sort of) we watched the new Casterway series first episode on Friday. I found the first one fascinating (I bought the polytunnel as a result), but can't say we were at all impressed with the second series start., the location was amazing but it was so contrived 'are they pirates'? Give me strength! Might watch tonights but it could be the last!
Aunties socks have caused much stress. I reached the heel before comparing the second sock with the first & realised that they didn't match!!!! I had reversed the pattern on the first & not on the second if that makes any sense, so had to frog the second & match its curves to the first ...grrrr. Time might be tight! They are back on track now despite a very exciting rugby match on TV this afternoon! Well done boys, you did England proud. I have been watching
rugby long enough to remember when the 'outside half factory' was in Wales. Now its in Newcastle! Fantastic Falcons fly high!
Dog and I went for a RALK late this afternoon (RunandwALK). Furthest yet I think. It was try enough to venture along some of the tracks across the valley in running shoes, rather than wellies which was great. Must try and keep up to it as we are going skiing again in three weeks!
