There’s a lot to catch up on
It’s 10:00 am and I’m sitting down for a few stolen moments to write a blog – there’s a lot to catch up on.
This morning the tide is high and there is a shimmer of light on the water in the gentle breeze. We watch more yachts sailing by, on the Menai Strait, as the season begins. The pink fishing boat, ‘Lottie Holly’, has just passed the end of Bangor Pier and is motoring south west, towards Caernarfon. The mountains of Snowdonia ar partly shrouded in cloud and the sun is playing hide and seek.
I hope the weather will be kind to me today, I need to finish preparing the vegetable patch for planting.
Daf has built a new door – from scratch! – for the Cottage utility. It looks wonderful and keeps the leaves out.
We have had a lot of work done on the lower banks at Coed y Berclas. They have been re-profiled and turfed. They are splendid. The only drawback is the amount of grass-cutting Daf will need to do but,as he says, it’s cheaper than the gym.
That’s a reminder to me that I should be digging the veg patch – great, the sun’s shining!
