mum has had hell of a time, feet sore, been hobbling about. i ordered her some new shoes out of club book,came thursday, she tried them on,bearing in mind her toes are still bandaged and for the first time in ages she felt comfortable n shoes,well more like a slipper really,velcro fastening. so little bit more comfort for her until we go to see chiropodist on thursday.
now,remember them rats in greenhouse? set 2 traps?? all baited?? well i caught 1 rat, great 1 dead ( sorry anyone who dont like it i love animals any are welcome except rats vile creatures) so i got me gloves on to remove from trap and forgot the other bloody trap.put me foot on it and SNAPPPPPP. good job i whipped me foot away fast very lol or i would have toe problems as in no toes that made the blood flow faster lol. you did say pamal wished i had listened love lol
so today, i decided i must really attack the rest of the greenhouse, its a 10 by 8 Robinson aluminium and they are the rollsroyce of greenhouses. i won it about 15 years ago just after we moved in here,it was the first prize in a new monthly gardening magazine,i entered the competiton, and won £1300 worth erected for me staging on 1 side and that had to be cleared i moved plants etc onto other side staging took everything off,i got wood under staging all my pots,cell trays and seed trays on it. the lot went outside staging taken out and i just stood there the bloody rats had burrowed under earth all up,hole in bottom of side a mess. now at the end of the greenhouse,i had a desk one of them metal framed types doesnt everyone have a desk in their greenhouse????? lol got 3 draws decided that had better come out as well
now,i keep all my seeds in a plastic seed store in 1 draw various odds and ends and as i wasn't well last year i stopped doing veg garden, so i havent been in those draws for ages. so i pulled them out and nearly was sick. full of rat droppings, 2 bloody rats nests,empty i am so glad to say. they stunk. so i emptied them into bin,just few things ok,rest dumped. and i dismantled the desk, and disposed of it. i have my own rubbish dump right up top of garden,hidden behind bushes, graveyard of a lot of crap over years. the woodchip will rot down soon go. there was a huge hole in corner rat tunnels every where so out came my pressure washer and i blasted the whole ground, dug it over,raked and flattened it and clean greenhouse. staging from side i just cut down by a foot to fit made a potting area from large piece of worktop,job done. and i hope very wet n muddy rats if any there lol.
i get asked, so if you got MS, and back trouble how can you do all you do?? the answer?? i have to do it,theres only me. and it took me 8 hours to do i may add. tomorrow i won't hardly walk,tonight my shoulder is on fire going to be a sleepless night. but i did it. grobag in border planted with 2 tomatoes i had given me lot of difference from 3 years ago,boarder was filled with 5 bags compost and grew 12 tomatoes. and gave most away,just couldnt eat them fast enough. anyway,going to bed take care all
