Has stopped work for today. I accept the blame, I miscalculated… But hey I’m a fluffy designer type not a landscape gardener.
So done a lot today… All on my lonesome too, but not as much as I’d hoped.
Completely fucked now. But not in a ‘good’ way.
Time for a beer.
I guess today is the big day in the ‘extend the paving’ project. I’ve hopefully got a friend arriving later this morning to help me. Hopefully we’ll get a lot done today.
I’ll be the one falling asleep into my wine/beer/gin (delete as appropriate) later on. So tumblr; you see me sliding, you give me a prod.
I hate DIY.
Yesterday I did a lot of it. Real digging not metaphorical.
I’ll be the first one to admit, I’m not exactly the best at hard, physical labour. More of an arty-farty designer type really.
But I achieved a lot yesterday and it feels good.
But I ache like a mother-f***er today.
A times watch and “not Hunter” wellies ? I beg to differ sir ; )
I normally wear my dad’s Favre-Leuba watch. He bought it in Singapore, in the early 1950’s when he was doing his National Service. But truth be told - it’s too precious to me, to allow it to get damaged whilst gardening. And that Timex you see IS BRILLIANT. It’s built like a tank and just SO reliable!
As for the wellies; what I’m actually wearing are an old pair, cut down making them easy to get on and off, when I’m nipping in and out of the garden. Did have Hunters once upon a time, but to be honest - ‘they’re expensive but they ain’t that good’.
Anyways here’s my normal watch…
Today I volunteered to take my son and his friends bowling, then to take them for lunch.
Then I volunteered to bring them all back here, so they can play on the XBox, whilst I walk the dog.
Then I volunteered to be the taxi, to take those same friends back home.
I seem to have volunteered to do a lot.
