    I'm a lazy sod. I've cut a landy boot full of ash logs for the tennant where I work, sat on my arse and done as little as possible since.
    I also lent a man my axe and Warren made hook knife so I didn't have to use them.

    I've been out in the garden with a Spyderhawk removing ash that's growing up from the neighbour's fence, then fitted a cowl to a boiler flue (exciting!) and now I'm back from Sainsbury's with some proper crusty rolls and sausages.

    Yesterday I did fuck all, and took two separate hour long naps.

    :D

    I'm having a lazy weekend.
    I've made a blouse,
    I've sharpened my grass edging shears.
    I baked cheese scones.
    I did do the ironing :roll:
    Cut back the mugwort and bundled and hung leaves to dry.
    Shifted pots around the garden.
    Did some quilting.
    Sat and played with my watercolours :)
    Gathered meadowsweet flourish and have it drying too.
    Preserved some spiced peaches for Winter.

    Looks a lot, but it's not really much.
