plenty to do...

Since I am in the middle of an almost unprecendented four days off work, I thought I'd turn my hands to a few bits and bobs that have needed doing. Take, for example, the bunk beds that we bought for Eleanor's room - while Beth took her grandfather for a hospital appointment, Lenni and I set to assembling the tightly packed collection of Danish pine, and - being something of a seasoned master(?) of flat-pack furniture, it wasn't too challenging a job to complete! (click the picture for a larger image of the builder at work! The hat was her idea...)

Yesterday was a wonderful day for getting out into the back garden - a weak sun warmed the air, and there wasn't a chilly breeze to counter it; while I reassembled the compost bin (well, nearly - it had blown across the garden during the strong winds, and I've still not found the lid!) and cut down some of the brambles around the shed. This was, in part, inspired by the Alternative Kitchen Gardener) podcast, which is new, although it's presented with a familiar voice - Emma, from the Emma And Pete Show 'couplecast' (as I believe they're known).

The winter pansies have sprouted, which is encouraging, since I think they'll bring some much needed colour to the end of the garden closest to the house - I could spend at least another afternoon out the back doing bits and pieces.. it's just a case of finding the right time!

Well, that'll probably do for now... no links today since I'm on my studio PC, where Beth has spent a successful evening entertaining some internet radio listeners with her disco classics and household tips... you can't say we don't get up to some unusual things of an evening!
