Yesterday I wrote about a number of minor setbacks catching me on the raw. Thankfully they were all silly and minor but obviously minor things don’t always feel that way.
I was determined to make sure I had a great day today… no matter what! I made sure of it 🙂
Firstly our roof was fixed. It has been leaking for ages, we have been through many temporary fixes and this time I think we have cracked it. Fingers crossed. Getting the work done was simple, quick, painless and not too expensive.
Secondly it was Transition Chesterfield’s repair cafe today. I didn’t sit on the repairing crew this time (next time I’ll volunteer for clothes mending). I won’t say too much about it as I want to do a separate post on the whole Repair Cafe (which was awesome!) but I got most of my bike fixed (and I know what is wrong with the rest), I got told what was wrong with an old bottle steriliser (should be simple to fix once we get a small part) and I came away with 2 replacement courgettes, and a bag full of denim scraps for patchworking and mending some of our own jeans.
Then we walked back in the sunshine and I took a quick break before hitting the garden… and hitting it hard!
I potted out the 2 courgettes from C, 4 tomatoes, 1 mountain mint, 1 french tarragon.
I sowed 4 pots chives, 2 pots summer savory, 2 pots of basil, 1 pot of bergamot.
I’m starting everything in pots because it is easier to protect them my Nemesis – the slug!
Then I had a quick visit to the pig pen and admired my mangetout and redcurrants – they are both so very nearly ready and looking grand!.
AND I got another sock mended. Back down to 10 socks to mend.
