You know when you have a list, a fairly big and firm list of “really must do’s”, it’s amazing how many other things get achieved. Today I ironed linen napkins, some I even marveled at how big they actually are once ironed. Yep, I iron napkins, ah… never, so that gives you an idea as to how important that was.
Yesterday I did the front garden, properly. It’s been bugging me for ages, it’s supposed to be an English Country Garden, all rambling and go-for-it, but instead it just looks shabby and makes me frown. So I got a bit ruthless with the snippers, which was extremely satisfying, and underneath have re-discovered all the lovely reasons why Cottage Garden can work. Simple things like Iceberg Roses that go and go, alssyum (which is almost a personal weakness), and my lovely stone steps with no more weeds.
