So the reason for not being around much is Spring , cant beat a bit of heavy duty garden work in the sunshine , the trouble is im very much Billy No Mates when it comes to the gardening , plus they dont get no dig methods , i have to use those, my cyst ridden hips and back wont handle a lot of digging . Its been that bad ive had to have a nettle cull with real weed killer , hideously expensive vile stuff . I always leave a nettle patch between us and the cows it really does seem to keep them from deciding to visit plus the wildlife love them ,but theyre very invasive so needed culling every 3 or 4 years . its not where we plant crops Ive a mountain of brambles to burn as well .
Im probably wasting my breath , but i want the greenhouse putting up , its been waiting 4 years now and the frames done and im sick of the feeble excuses from the whole lot of them , if they cant be arsed it can be sold , just very militant and totally fed up at the moment.
Still having to handwash everything due to the lack of a washer , this is eating so much time , once again no help forthcoming .
Yesterday was Mothers Day , so I cooked endlessly for the whole ungrateful bunch of them Young Baldrick included , didnt do an ounce of washing so theyre all whining this morning , daughter nipped me to B&Q to price up the stuff for the greenhouse base , then a trip to Poundworld for a pack of Frys chocolate creams .
Dont have the money to pay for the greenhouse base so ive been out first thing skip stalking in Woodhall Spa where the posh folk live , its amazing what they chuck out over the weekend..lol but there were no breeze blocks aaarrrggghhh
Then theres a letter from the council informing us that theyre going to come and see how they can upgrade the heating, i should imagine that will be a log burner which will be no use to Mr Bah Humbug and as he pointed out maybe if they actually fitted double glazing we wouldnt be wasting our time trying to heat this dump , that may sound ungrateful but its ridiculous that they were defrauded by the company that fitted the new windows and it took them 5 years to admit it we have to wait another 25 years before we are allowed new windows again ...aaarrggghh
Work is pathetic , we have none of the work that actually pays till May , so we are more than skint at the moment , still waiting for the wages im owed to catch up , no wage slip yet again which doesnt look promising .
