Wasted Weekend :(
Well, as they say all good plans! I had a huge gardening weekend planned – planting veg seeds, tubers and plants, deadheading daffs and sprinkling some more annuals seeds plus feeding the front ceanothus hedge which looks hurrendous with some fertilizer. But we spent most of the weekend collating insurance paperwork and trying to list our belongings, the reason being we arrived home on Tuesday evening to find we had been burgled. A professional job according to the phorensics, the theives took 2 cars, one was a 111R Lotus Elise, a 52 plate Seat Ibiza, 2 lap tops, one a brand new Mac Book and one belonging to my 16 year old with all her GCSE Coursework on it, an LCD TV and the worst was my Nans Edwardian antique wedding and engagement ring, a solitaire diamond ring, jewellery that my late mother in law gave me and other memorable stuff which just can’t be replaced.
I can’t begin to tell you how depressing it all is. The house was a tip and they went through everything. We are managing to get back to normal and I am going to get myself outside for some respite gardening this week hoping that the weather hold for me, I have so much to do. Not too sure what to do with the dead ceanothus, it is only 2 shrubs, but it looks tatty and we are moving so nothing will grow in time to dig them out. I have bought some quick growing clematis to try to hide them, I hope that helps. I will post some pictures later this week to see if you guys have any suggestions
