Lazy wake-up. Walk to the pool, swim, sauna, steam, walk back.
Brunch. Croissants with ham. Wash & dry clothes.
Cleaned kitchen. Cooked lunch – chicken schnitzel with stir fried beans.
Went to David’s, checked out the table (👍🏽) and dresser (🖐🏽). He also offered the garden set (👍🏽).
Went to town after ages. Got a haircut. Didn’t buy anything.
Got pizza from the good local place for dinner. Our old cleaner delivered it; he now works for just eat.
Went for a late walk with Chewie and R. Sat on the mount and watched the setting sun while taking about work and people.
Lazy morning in bed. Did a bit of work converting Autoconvert to typescript.
Went to Tesco. R did grocery shopping. I bought a 4 pack of Asiatic lilies.
Went to Lidl. Bought 2 Acers. R bought some misc stuff.
Walked over to B&Q. Bought coleus seeds and some planter trays. R finally got her jumbo sponge.
Walked back to Lidl. Bought 2 more Acers (☺️), some compost, a watering jug for me and, tomatoes for Benu.
Heated lasagna for lunch. Fixed the Virgin router (again!). Saw Leclerc was already out of F1, so lost interest.
Installed two new hangers for hanging baskets. Moved the small petunia basket to backyard, and large petunia basket to the front.
Spent more on garden – ordered lavender plugs for planting under the hedge, and lots of valerian seeds on eBay.
Went back to Tesco to get rajmah. Didn’t buy any plants this time.
Went to David’s to negotiate the cost of tables and dressers. He said yes to my first offer. Had mild regret that I could’ve gone lower. Got his spare, old step ladder (for free). Got two Roxanne geraniums. Saw a painting of 18 month old Maisie. Saw puppy photos of Maisie. Missed Maisie. A lot.
R came over to tell the scores – Liverpool had equalised, City were losing, United were losing, West ham were winning. She was grinning ear to ear.
Returned home and got back to the garden. Planted all 12 marigolds. Topped up last year’s chocolate & chili begonias with fresh compost. Planted the remaining red begonia tubers and 11 new chocolate & chili begonias. Planted the two Roxanne geraniums from David. Cleaned up a few weeds.
Sometime in between, city scored 3 goals and won the league. House went silent. R has been sulking and mourning since. Garden was a safe place to be for me. Chewie joined me too; with his ball.
Did more gardening. Then watered everything – front and back. Forgot the grass, but it was already quite dark.
Now getting ready for a shower and shave, before crashing for the night.
Good weekend. Lazy, but not very 🙂
