I usually try to keep Friday free as I like to have an extra long weekend. Also I’ve worked bloody hard all week in various gardens, spending much of the time on my knees, and so I feel it only right that I have Friday off. I’m self employed, I can do what I want!
Well today is Friday, and firstly all the chickens spent their first night all together in the large house. They’ve been playing very happily with each other during the day for a week now, so it’s time they all slept together. They were all happy this morning, and eating and drinking from the same things.
Now I can empty the small house and put it back in the garage for next time. I can also take down the make-shift run and tidy that away. I have my garden back as it should be.
Emily is away at the moment, so Mark, George (doesn’t have school of Friday) and I went to see the new Avengers movie. Don’t worry, I’m not going to say anything about what happens. All I am going to say is go to the loo beforehand, and don’t take a drink in with you. The film is 3 hours long, and with the ads and stuff before, it comes out around three and a half hours. I could barely stand up by the end, and my bum was very numb.
This afternoon I went in the garden, and planted out my “Red Brunswick” Onion seedlings. They’ve grown very well, and it’s the first time I’ve grown large onions from seed. I’ve got some other white onions to go in as well, but they’re not quite ready yet.
I then had a big water, and then sowed a few more seeds. As I’ve planted out the first lot of Sugar Snap Peas, so I’ve sown the next lot, and a little bit more Lettuce Mixed Salad Leaves. I’ve also sown a few more flowers Honesty “Purple and White Mixed” and finally some Asperula.
Dinner time now, and the boys are getting fish and chips.
Time to sit down and relax.
