Day 0 #easterhols2012

Today I have finished work at 5.00pm and am holiday for 2 weeks - well 16 days to be exact. It is ages since I had 2weeks off and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm going to chill out and have a relaxing time.
I picked up a takeaway for tea on the way home - pepperoni pizza for Joe, fish cake & chips for Joe and fish & chips for me. I sat in the garden to eat mine. This evening we have chilled out and watched tv (Big Bang Theory) and played Mario Kart on the Wii.

Gardening - no excuses

It was a gloriously sunny day today and as we had been out for a walk yesterday there was no excuse not to get on with gardening.  The garden is quite messy at the moment - I wish I had more time to keep it tidy but it tends to get sidelined for other things.  Once I start gardening I realise how much I like it.  I tidied up the borders, sorted out the pots and mowed the lawn at the front and back.  I put into pots some primulas and pansies that I had bought yesterday from the garden centre to go near the back door.  Not much of interest in the way of plants and flowers at the moment although some daffodils are appearing in the swathe.  Also some beautiful hellebores.
