Up at 5:35 - a bit late but such is life. Dog walked, papers fetched. Watered stuff then off to the office, got in a little late at 8:10 but couldn't be helped. Back home a bit after 6pm. Tea then dog walk then sorting out support for the sunflowers which were getting a bit of a battering from the wind. Then down the lotty with the dog for watering. Need to get some bits of wood for the pumpkins to go on so they don't rot. Back home before 9pm - going dark quick so t'is. Bed for 10:30

Up at 5.30. Dog walked, papers fetched into the office before 8am. All good stuff. Long day in the office picked up a drum stool I got on eBay on the way home which was good. Got home about 6.30, tea, Dog walked round the meadow,
down the lotty at 8.00pm came off about 9.40 as it was going dark - did a bit on me patio!! Also got some runner beans and some raspberries for the missus!
|Patio - not massive and likely to have some tomato plants on it shortly anyway but it's a start!|
This is the view - the foxgloves need sorting I reckon!
Up at the crack of dawn, dog walked, papers fetched, watered greenhouse then into office for 7.50 after getting petroleum on the way! Funny sort of a day, very busy but it dragged on. Got home for 6pm. Tea. Dog Walked. Did a few jobs in greenhouse and generally watered stuff. Phil got home. Went down lotty on me bike. Think I've sorted out the water butt that leaked with epoxy resin but am going to do the inside of the tap next time I go. Watered stuff. Pulled up a load of ruddy nettles. Have got to get busy as there's another inspection in August. Marvellous. Back home, dog walked, off to bed for 10.30. Watched Kingsman on the Now TV box quite good. I went online to cancel it as it was due to go up to £9.99 a month - right at the end it offered £6 a month so took it.

Saturday 30th July 2016
Up early. Dog walked, papers fetched. Did a bit down the lotty. Golf at 12.20 - felt like played better but scored worse - wierd two birdies on 7th and 14th - 14th was about three inches off being a hole-in-one! Went to brother-in-law Vic's 70th at Leek Cricket Club - had a band on from way back called White Knuckle Ride who were playing same venues as I used to with Big Lix back in the day. Sat in for Free's alright now which was interesting!! All good stuff - didn't cock it up. Back home a bit after midnight. Had to be quiet as Lucy had her friend over for a sleepover.
Sunday 31st July 2016
Up at 7pm. Dog walked. Papers fetched. Did a load of jobs at home and when missus was ready we went to Uttoxeter to get some wire mesh stuff for shed as Allotment Committee said existing mesh was too big (this was back in May - am just getting round to it!! Anyway before getting the old mesh (which was a lorra laughs as Shop that has it in Alfreton don't have it in Uttoxeter - such is life) we went into Barnado's charity shop - got 5 Mizunzo Pro II irons - 4,5,7,8,9 they went through the till as bric-a-brac for the princely sum of £4.95 - if I don't keep I'll sell em seperately! Anyway, we got we wanted got back home for about noon. A bit of snap then went down to lotty to put a shift in. Got the front of the shed done, no worries. Got some more slabs done. Did a bit of weeding (just typed in welding for some reason?). Chopped tops of spuds as we got blight in the allotment - need to find out what Bernie's strain of blight-resistant spuds is next time I see him. All good stuff.
Home for tea. Later on got Phil to come down with his industrial strimmer and do a bit at the back of seven I'd let get overgrown.
