recovery and gardening

I made it back to work yesterday, and made it all the way through a shift, which was something of a relief. Fortunately, it was only a single day, so I'm home again today, looking after Lenni for the most part, since Beth's down in London for an appointment.

On my journey to work yesterday I was wide awake - for once - so I worked out a plan for the 'growable' parts of the garden based on recommendations by Beth's Mum and Dad and Emma. We made a start on it today, after Beth kindly bought some seeds from Wilkinson, with clearing a space by the 'arch' at the end of the 'second level' and planting some sunflower seeds. It's the perfect place (if they take!) because there's sun there most of the day - we just need to make sure they're kept watered.


The lettuce and rocket is struggling a little - I might fill it out with some more seeds - but the carrots are coming next; while Lenni's out for the day with Beth on Saturday, I'm hoping to do that with Christopher.

A few links I've stumbled across during the course of the past couple of days. Remember Steorn for example? Well, they've revealed a little more about their new technology, but it's still somewhat shrouded in secrecy. There's a video here which explains where they are now... hopefully we'll hear more by the end of the summer. I'll certainly be keeping my eye on the New Scientist magazine..

Finally, if you're in the market for it, there's a free Family Railcard (valid until the end of July) offer available, thanks to the Daily Mail - you'd better get in quick, though, since it closes on the 24th April.

Have a good day!
