A quiet day for recovering

I didn't do all that much today, though I did do a load of laundry to wash all the clothes we'd taken away to London. I also completely unpacked the suitcase, put all the bits and pieces away and even put the case away in its designated place in the garage.

Later this afternoon I ventured out into the garden to clear more of the long weeds down at the bottom. I cleared a sizeable patch, completely filling the wheelie bin with weeks, brambles and dead sticks.

I have now cleared as far as my blackberry patch and I'm pleased to say that there are masses of flowers on the brambles. If they successfully turn into berries, I will have a good crop and LOTS OF JAM! :) After I'd done 30 minutes of clearing, I sat outside for a while, drinking a cup of tea and reading my ebook. One of next week's tasks is to buy a patio table and chairs because at the moment I am lifting an old dining chair in and out. I need something that can cope with a rain shower and stay outside throughout the summer.
