I feel like 3 of the 7 Dwarf's/ Don't push it


I feel like 3 of the 7 Dwarf’s: Sleepy, Grumpy and Sneezy. I think I might need Doc, too.
Wow I have got a bad cold…..Not had one in years…
I have spent a few days in the garden and now look at me.
I have started planting out, beetroot, mixed lettuce and radishes and covered them in some fleece. Erected my pea canes and just a general tidy up.
I have also sewn some sweetcorn.
Lots of other stuff doing well in the greenhouse, just need to start to climatise it before planting those lovely small plants out.

I am really fed up that I have this dam cold, sister was due to have her 2nd baby on Friday still no sign as yet, just hope I can clear it before the arrival. I so do not want to miss being able to help her cos of this cold.
Sister had a bet on the Grand National too today ’Don’t push it’, as a bit of a laugh – she won £16….she will have a great memory to tell her little one in years to come about that…LOL

Was planning on going out tomorrow
Potteric Carr Nature Reserve, to have a nice walk and take some photos with my new camera.
I will have to see if I’m up to it….hope you all having a good weekend.

Hope your cold gets better soon, and good luck to your sister and her impending arrival. I backed 3 horses today first time ever and all three didn't finish, never mind it was a lovely day, take care. Slue

I hope your cold is clearing by now. It sounds a very miserable thing to have. Enjoy your day out . I hope you're feeling well enough to go. I hope your sister's baby will not be long. It's an anxious time for you all.
