Aching...

The best part of yesterday afternoon was spent gardening and emptying raised beds, doing other heavy duty tasks to help out. We were both shattered by about 8pm and aching like mad. Methinks we are getting just a tad too old to do such tasks for long!

Our meal times have gone a bit off piste as well and my digestive system is not too happy. Hopefully in a few days, things will turn the corner and some tasks completed which may lighten the aches. A few more days after that, most things will be finished and the ‘to do’ list thrown away.

Mind you, the weather today is awful, heavy rain rather than snow which is better, but now the outdoor jobs are on hold and will be harder to complete with the ground being so soggy.

Onwards and upwards!

  1. We've actually got better weather today than was forecast - showers rather than persistent heavy rain. Still not good for gardening though, especially since the gardens, the back especially, are like swamps! Hope you can have a rest today to help the aches and pains.

  2. It must stop raining soon.......surely.
    My back is always awful for the first few weeks that I get back to gardening - I have to remember to start doing the back exercises again to put it right.
    Enjoy soggy Monday!

  3. I struggled doing the lawn last week. It was the first cut and it was thick because of the rain. I can't eat anything with fat in after 6 because of indigestion. Horrible!

  4. It cleared up here and the sun actually came out but didn't like what it saw and went away again. It has to clear at some point.

    Go bless.

  6. The Smart Meter man came again yesterday - and went away again. He seems to be going round Norfolk unable to find a strong enough signal to install his devices. Shame the signal isn't improved by rainfall - we would qualify for a shedload of meters if it did!

    1. His signal was intermittent here as well. Agree about rainfall!
