The sense of relief when it was finished was amazing - I have so many deadlines and commitments at the moment that I am feeling quite stressed, but yesterday I decided to play truant and run away to the allotment with one of my friends - it was so much fun to be there when I knew I should be doing so many other things!
It was the first day this year that I have connected up the hose for watering and I really enjoyed standing in the sunshine watching the water spray catch the light (I really did enjoy myself yesterday! Simple things please simple minds)
I'm sorry I keep showing you very boring photos of the allotment but this is the time when I am using my blog as a diary/record - these uneventful shots are a really good way for me to see what progress (if any) I am making on what can seem like a never-ending task.
Take this picture for instance.
See that long bed on the right of the photo? The one chocka-block full of weeds? Well that was yesterday......................

Made larger (and turned round) for the

Ok, don't answer that one!
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
