    Okay, it's kind of cheating on the garden front as I employed a gardener to do the work but I'm claiming it because we've been talking about it for ages and putting it off - so I finally did something about it which is a success in itself! 😉😂
    The hall tiles stuff and the bathroom light pull are jobs for dh - I can't see them being sorted for a while as sil has the tools we need for the tiles and with the lockdown we can't see him but once it's okay, I'll get dh onto it! The light pull can be done when dh is on leave in a couple of weeks- weekends I want his help in the garden 😉
    I'm hoping to do the carpets this weekend and if it's rubbish weather I'll do the food cupboards 😁 
    Happy frog munching!! 🐸

    I don’t think it’s cheating, the main thing is the jobs got done. I was doing really well in the garden, but haven’t been able to do much since spraining my ankle three weeks ago.
    I’m still too scared to list all my frogs! but I  have tackled a few of them.
    Life is mainly froth and bubble: two things stand like stone. Kindness in another’s trouble, courage in your own.

    Thanks Polly! 😊 I do feel a bit of a fraud but as you said, it's getting it done! 😉 (not to mention that I made them lunchtime sarnies daily to keep their strength up! 😂) 
    I'm sitting down at some point this weekend to make a full list of frogs - it will be huge as I'm breaking it down into manageable pieces so don't be afraid to list yours - we can encourage each other to tackle them! 😊 
    Hope your ankle is improving! 😔

    The stuff in italics is done!! 🙌 can't do strikethroughs on my phone! 🤔 
    I've still got a lot to sort (and more to list! 🙈) but I'm pretty pleased with what I've achieved so far! 
    We've been on leave for the past week so made the most of the good weather early in the week to get a lot more sorted in the garden - it's been very wet over the past couple of days so I have been taking the opportunity to relax my aching bones! 😂 
    Tomorrow, it's a total house clean and cooking day and I may finally finished my canvases so that I can reclaim my kitchen 😉
