In the Garden

It was gorgeous today so we made the most of the sunshine and headed out into the garden at the crack of 1pm.
We got loads done.
A second coat of paint on the fence fantastically applied by Miss E with a teeny bit of help from Miss L.
I planted some shrubs that have been sat in pots since I bought them last May. They’re half dead and properly root bound but hopefully being planted and actually watered will bring them back to life give them a new lease of life!
I did my annual clearing out the weeds and grass from between the bricks on the patio using my trusty kitchen knife. I got half of it done before my back was killing me too much.
There were worms under the compost bags (which have been sat there a year) the size of snakes. Miss L was in awe!
Miss E mowed the lawn (with Mr K trailing after her holding the cord like a bridesmaid!!)
A bit of general tidying up (us) and a lot of trampolining, cartwheeling, tree climbing and backflipping (them) and then it was time to take a break. A bath for me and a not even vaguely restful half hour for Mr K on the trampoline with the Little Misses. Hilarious!!! He has to “boost jump” them which basically involves him bouncing and them being flung off on all directions. Cue hysterical giggling!!
I did have to be a boring Mummy - all day in fact - and point out the last place we want to have to go at the moment is A&E.
Mr K bought a giant projector screen last year. I’ve never been quite sure why! Well tonight I found out!!
They’d set it up outside while I was in the bath. Comfy camping chairs and our super comfy fishing bed chairs, blankets, popcorn, nachos, bats, a beautiful moon and Trolls on the big screen.
It was AWESOME!!!!!
