Now being of an exceptionally sharing nature I thought it only best to rope in the troops and all get out there and have some garden
First job was dead heading and there was a production line in operation with the 3 of us for the first 10 minutes but that soon lapsed to a one person chain gang with me being the only one in it.
In order to regain the focus of my uninterested troops we then moved on to planting the spring bulbs for next year.
Last year for my birthday I was very kindly given some daffodil and crocus bulbs and I loved them so much Joshua and I bought some more for next spring to add to our already blooming spring displays …. Don’t let that kid you I am no Alan Titchmarsh! and I don’t have the boobs of Charlie Dimmock although I am not sure I will loose sleep over that!
Bulb planting initially started out as a two man job (or one mum and a toddler) but soon it became a one mum job as my partner in bulb crime decided to run off with my marigolds and create some mayhem!
Bethany took on the roll of weed chopper and was excellent at chopping down those triffids that come from one of the neighbouring houses at the bottom of the garden behind the sheds. She was one brave worrier going down there with the spiders and triffids. Ollie was on standby for any moments of drama … with a tween there is always moments of drama, however with both of them squealing over spiders I am not sure who was helping who!
It was so so lovely to get out in the fresh air and warm weather in what maybe one or the only nice days this season………. Lets face it the weather is so unpredictable it may snow next week!
I am off to buy more spring bulbs hopefully next week, however I will not rely on my parter in bulb crime this time, nor will I be telling Ollie (he will remove my bank card if he is made aware before hand)
I have also have to get in the sheds and have jolly good clear up and toy stacking to do so we have a large empty space for optimum snowman building.
