the fact i am writing this posting at 4am should give a clue how i am feeling lol. i went to bed at 12 and woke at 3 am coughing. i have got a filthy cold and cough. i called round my friend pams last friday morning because she wanted to see me,she never told me she had a bad cold. if she had,i wouldn't have gone round. so not to pleased with her. she knows chest infections are dangerous if you have MS and not only that i now have to hope mum doesn't catch it. ho well. its getting light,and the dawn chorus is starting, just a lightening of the sky but that's enough for mr.blackbird.he is really giving it some lol obviously not got a cold lol
i took mum out on friday shopping and bought another 20 busy lizzies for the garden boarder,we got home fairly late so they went in greenhouse for later planting. what lovely weather we have been having,saturday i was up early,i had also bought from Morrisons a 5 litre tub of their wood preserver and i gave the summer house a coat, then the shed which is now 37 years old,a bit rotten in places but still going, it now looks a new shed. really pleased with the quality of the product and it was only £4.99 good value. i also did the hoovering.where in hell does all the dirt come from?? oh we are mucky lot.lol then back out in garden boarder for an hour. my front garden is mostly shrubs,bulbs and perennials the bulbs long gone over it looked awful, so i cut them all down to the ground,cleaned up any weeds and gave the soil a dose of pelleted chicken manure,all ready for the new plants.
sunday was another lovely warm sunny day,and after cooking and eating sunday lunch instead of going to bed as i normally do,instead i went back out and finished the front garden. 2 barrowfulls of rubbish off. planeted the busy lizzies plus another 5 i had put in a container and it will give some colour for summer. i can do with a few more of something to give a good display. although there is always something to give colour,aqualegias and peonys are now coming out,boarder pinks starting to come. but in the spaces i always have something,and a lot of the pansies i had used last autumn are getting very straggly. i did cut some down,but i am rather ruthless,if it looks a bit poorly,up it comes. so good watering with the hose,and my garden should look nice especially when the pots and baskets go out.
the last 2 days havent been so nice,although yesterday well ok monday as its now really wednesday was sunny it had a bite the wind has moved around to a north easterly direction and it feels colder, today has been cool,grey and overcast. so my hanging baskets can keep in the greenhouse for another week. they are all doing well,in fact a lot of te petunias are in flower,fuschias will bloom any day. so by the time they do go out,i should have a good display.
mums toe is doing well,and although i dress it with surgical spirit between the toes as directed by the chiopodists,it has healed well. but she still is suffering badly from gout. really giving her a lot of pain poor love. well,i think i will go back to bed for while,now 4.25 so this has passed a bit of time lol i feel lousy, coughing and sneezing as i have been typing. i bet i will have to end up going to drs again for antibiotics lovely. oh well take care all
