The Birthday Wood will be here, at the end of our little meadow
I never thought we would chose to live in a house in a lane with a footpath running by but the rest of our garden is tucked away out of sight behind the cottage so the footpath isn't a problem.
The soft fruit bed (one white currant, a few raspberry canes, a dead gooseberry bush and a couple of other currants - colour unknown) is in the process of being weeded and after our son had helped dig out a huge nettle clump we had room to get the Poundland/ Wilkinsons raspberry canes into the ground. A couple had given up the ghost but the rest showed signs of leafy life. Had I have known we had a dead gooseberry I would have got one from Wilkinsons or Aldi earlier in the year when they had them for sale for a couple of quid!
Son was here to help sort out the might-come-in-handy-but-now-probably-not smallholder things that have been stored in the horsebox trailer for the last 15 months. Col decided what he wanted to keep, son shifted and I wrote a list of everything ready to take to the Auction House Collective sale in Mid May.
There is some news on the health issues, but we are waiting for results and authorization so no timeline yet. Meanwhile we just take a day at a time and make the most of him feeling not to bad.
