Wasn't it lovely outside today! I don't have an outside desk as such but I have a couple of nice aluminium patio chairs, very lightweight. The table is horrible, even that needs decluttering and then a deep clean, but at least I have one I *did* get outside, and I'm afraid I carried on with the work I was already doing, the digging up roots (all done on that side now!!!) and laying out a line of sturdy posts to act as soil retainers. Very heavy, so they might do the job. I had to saw one to make it fit, though, and that was tiring. But that job, of protecting the fence by lining underneath with existing pieces of concrete or paving or pottery, plus getting up the bramble roots, plus laying an initial line of posts as the first layer of the raised beds, is 95% done. Very, very pleased But I'll be in bed soon, I'm not kidding

items and I fully completed only 8:
£10k premium bonds
French maintenance company
pavers and concrete posts
isa for this tax year
care (all these 3 not perfect, but better than I was)
out timber for raised beds
half a stone
slate and put down hard core
to underneath mahonia
kale and echinacea
lightpull in bathroom
up brilliant white pot
compact radio going
sewing machine set up
were other things I did that weren't on the list:
keys: I kept finding little stashes of unknown keys, gradually got
them all together, sorted out what opened what, what was useless. I
have a padlock on my side gate because of this Still need to find
out how to recycle the metal in keys from locks that have been
of sorting the keys, I also had to sort jewellery. I don't wear
much, but what I have, included the inherited stuff, needed to be
laid out to be more accessible. Job jobbed.
of the jewellery thing, which was odd: a little facebook lockdown
project, finding out where the solid silver replica of my head girl
badge at my school was made. My sister said the badges girls wore at
the school were from Iona, and that's correct. But the badges that
were given to head girls after their year had finished were made in
Birmingham by WHDarby (another head girl was on there and posted up
the same hallmark that I had). Just a little piece of history.
sorting the photos in my genealogy files: they were in folders named
according to the decade, but within that it was chaos I started
with the 1930s, and I'm still on it, oops.
Although I ended up doing quite a bit, it was basically a Fail! So
much so that tidying the upstairs of the house is its own project
