Sunday 29 May 2011: Hanger on...
457/365: ... this is my bargain basement clematis which I bought for an absolute snip last year and which looked very sickly and sorry for itself. But this year - it's still around and doing a great job of looking pretty (hence straight out of camera... a bonus for me who's too lazy to edit photos today!). It's a strange clump-forming variety and means I don't need to sort out any trellis for it in the garden which is all good in my book too.
Well... I caught up with a couple of backblips and now I'm blipping on the right day again:
Friday's blip - this was very grumpy
Saturday's blip - only slightly less grumpy
I have really struggled with my energy for the past couple of days. Think it's the cumulative effect of too much work and not the best quality sleep. At least having a long weekend is helping even if, like a little old lady, I did have to have a nap this afternoon! Oh, and now I'm watching some very surreal children's TV because the kids have been watching a strange programme with singing vegetables and now there's a lion with a mane the shape of a stripy beachball on its head. Weirdness. If there's something that'll push you over the edge into insanity it's kiddie-telly.
Nick's almost finished building a wall in our living room / dining room. We must be one of those odd people who sees a house and instead of saying 'we'll knock those rooms together' think 'we'll split them off again'. It should make both of them better though. We have high ceilings and one big room is cold and takes ages to heat. I'd rather have smaller and snugglier!
Oooh! Just remembered! I did manage to do a few things today. This morning I did the laundry, some weeding, planted some French beans and celery and then made a spicy carrot soup for lunch. This afternoon I walked down to the shop with Maddy Moo (who wanted some girlie time because she and Felix have been on a joint whinge-a-thon together) and got a few bits an' bobs for dinner. And compared to yesterday where I felt barely conscious most of the day... that counts as a lot!
PS The weather's rubbish at the moment

PPPS Glamorous, I ain't! :o)
