Much as I would love to nip across to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle this weekend to watch Castleford v Widnes I can't, so we are at home. When I say "at home" that's what I mean, we must avoid anything that's not totally free. There is no cash left. My mum has even surprised us with tickets for the Challenge Cup game against Keighley next month.
The seeds surprised us all by sprouting so now I have to move them from their teeny pot to somewhere so they can actually grow. Especially the lettuce, there are hundreds of them! I think there are about 8 tiny tomato plants, so that's better than nothing. If we get one tomato I'll be happy, it'll be more than we get from the onions. I am slightly distressed that everyone else seems to be talking about putting their tomatoes outside "soon", mine have been outside for weeks *oops*.
So I've been looking around at the dozens of jobs to do, if the rain holds off, and it's a big if, we'll paint the garage door. We bought the paint about 2 years ago and there it still sits. The woodwork in the spare room and landing isn't finished, I have the paint, I could finish that. When we moved in the entire house was magnolia - that is not an exaggeration. We are now down to the spare room ceiling and a strip of wood above the door at the top of the stairs, so much better.
Dan wants to take the lawn to the tip, our local recycling centre closed down very early into the cuts, so now it takes about an hour round trip, I think we'll need to go twice, not to mention the queue as I should imagine the rest of the town will be there too! We'll probably stop off at Granny's Bay for a look out to see and across to Southport if there's enough space to pull over. I won't take my purse so I can't buy an ice lolly.
Then there's quilting, an afternoon nap, plenty of cups of tea, a packet of Tunnock's teacakes. There are sections of The Desire Map to fill in, football is on the telly (Come On Fleetwood Town!), that should leave time for daydreaming. Doesn't sound too bad.
