Day 861 a day spent in the garden… another beautiful day! ☀️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿☀️

Ok so this is definitely Scottish summer…. All plans go out the window as we rush outside in case it’s the last sunshine we see this year. It’s been 25°C here which doesn’t happen very often.

And yes I have been known to do an ironing in the back garden before… just because it was sunny!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️😂

So we’ve been out in the garden since about 8am. We started by tackling the weeds that have taken over the world this year. I guess it means that we haven’t stayed on top of them as we should.

I also moved some plants… maybe not the best move but hey we couldn’t see them where they were anyway!

I then spent most of the day pressure washing the grass….. we are very lucky not to have the quagmire that we used to have when we had real grass but now have to wash the artificial grass. With three dogs, winter played havoc without beautiful lawn and the dogs were trawling mud through the house ever time it rained. This shows how bad out grass got….

And today before cleaning….

And after!!

It’s like we hoovered the garden and it feels great. So many weeds in the bin and so much garden rubbish tidied up.

By 2pm we were both pretty narky and in need of food but it was a job well done.

This weekend has been wonderful. The hot weather has made it feel like a real holiday and a break from work. When you stop waiting for the next best thing to come and start appreciating every day for what it is, then life feels so much better.

The girls have been warned…. No mess on my clean grass!!!

I did knock one of my lovely roses off the rose bush… such a shame but it looks beautiful in this bud vase.

Oh and the bed is stripped and washed and another two washing loads done! You know you’re getting older when a sunny day means a good washing day.

So here’s to a great week. Let’s try and break the cycle of thinking Monday to Wednesday are the drudge and appreciate them for what they are… I might need to remind myself of that 😂😂

Stay safe everyone ☀️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿☀️
