Long Way from Home
Cyclamen cyprium which needs a little tlc to get through an English winter. A cold frame will suffice - at least down south.
On a day when dull but necessary chores were lined up, I got a bit of excitement this afternoon. Jamie's Grandad rang to ask for help unblocking their drains. An outing, on my own, outdoor 'fun'. turned out it was a little more complicated than would be the case here. Bizarrely it was fun, lying in the muddy garden border, pushing garden hose several metres into the drains to dislodge a particularly unpleasant blockage. It truly was a s****y job! Extracting the hose it was impossible not to become a little contaminated but after an hours or so all was flowing freely from kitchen and bathrooms alike. I headed home .... for a hot bath. Everything I was wearing is currently doing a little dance in the washing machine and after several more wash-and-scrubbings my hands do finally seem to be free of the lingering odours. Type 2 fun to borrow a concept from a friend. :-)
