The garden is finally looking better thanks to the gardener. I'm not a massive fan of having 'staff'. I feel bad sitting on my arse, drawing pictures, while they crack on with the hard graft. And it irritates me that I have to break off from my work to make a cuppa and do some polite chit chat. I was the same when I had a cleaner. But I have to say it's a big improvement on the LeaveItToGrowOutOfControl policy we used to have. She's even gonna plant some shrubs next time she comes. Might be able to actually sit outside this summer. If we get one...

been busy...

In the last couple of weeks I have:
Done more work than I thought was physically possible.
Waited hand and foot on the other half following his knee replacement op.
Been the family's only taxi service due to the above.
Sat through a 3 hour hair appointment I really didn't have time for.
Run away from home with my computer in order to avoid knee replacement visitors disrupting my work flow.
Had our annual photo booth experience in order to come up with the Mother's Day goods.
Cancelled yoga due to excessive work demands.
Attended the somewhat dull Scout presentation night.
And taken the big one miles away for her sixth form college interview.

I have tried my very best not to moan about any of it because this week I also attended the saddest funeral I've ever been to and I'm counting my blessings that my life is a walk in the park compared to that of my lovely friend.
