Hot week

Well what a week we're having with this lovely sun. I've been getting the garden ready for the winter. I wonder why when its this hot. I have felt able to do a bit, i've repotted, chopped and had a general tidy up. My problem now is it too hot, my joints don't like this heat. I've been doing a bit,resting a bit, and i think i've done well. Today i went up the village as the farmers market was here and then i went round the village and had a good nosy round. Went home and i planned to do a bit more in the garden, but that went by the wayside as i find i'm kn""""d. I crashed out on my chair and slept for hour and a half, which just laterly i haven't been doing. My joints are swollen and stiff, sore and thick. So for today i've given in and not done anything.

So to all my friends on here, i hope that your not suffering too much in this lovely weather, if you are i feel for you. Tomorrows another day and i hope i can get more done.

I probaly done too much this week and paying for it now,but never mind.

Have a lovely sunday.

I feel asleep in the garden.. but with the low winter sun in is shady from about 3.30pm I heard snoring it was me!!!, I woke up and had trouble moving this morning and I must have needed that afternoon nap as did you xx

I had cut the lawn first and done some hanging out of washing and hoovered the living room. think I have been tired at work since my short break it has been hellish busy.



You need a holiday alison to get over the one you just had. Just got in we went for a meal down the corner house. I had scampi and bob had gammon. It was lovely sitting outside at 5.30pm enjoying the last of the sun. I have to say your blog to me made me smile, i read it out to my hubby too.We'll both what tomorrow brings then, another nice day with sunshine.

Love sylvia. xx


Hi Sylvia. I like the sunny hot weather, but my joints don't!! It's always affected me this way too, I also love the gardening, never thought I would say that though but I do.

Over the past few years I've really enjoyed it. My hubby redesigned all the garden so it's easy for me to manage, no more mowing of lawns. although I miss the grass it is easy for me to manage. Two big patio areas with a big fish pond too. I just keep the borders neat and tidy and that suits me perfectly! Lots of pots and garden furniture, I get to love it more every year.

Take care in this warm weather, I fear the ice and snow will soon be upon us!!
