My week started well enough last Monday as the sun was shining and I spent the morning working on the plot.
A couple of weeks back over on Allotments 4 All Betula had made this suggestion and the idea of donating to my good cause Thrive was agreed on. On Tuesday morning I set up this JustGiving page for her, and as you can see we’ve raised £120. With the extra donation that I ‘ve promised and added GiftAid amount that will take the total to over £150, and needless to say we’re well pleased.
Wednesday was the real down day! I spent much of the time on the phone on various personal/family/business matters and basically got nowhere. On Allotments 4 All a member who’s an internet troll decided to try and cause mayhem with endless pointless topics and offensive remarks. I ended up going to bed early with a headache, then woke up in the middle of the night realising that I’d not only not done a draft for my Thursday entry here but also lay there wondering what the heck to write about anyway.
Thursday morning I walked to the library and on the way met Tyson who’s a wonderful fluffy white, blue-eyed Huskie just like this one. He’s a youngster but getting noticably bigger every time I see him, and as his owner said thankfully less boisterous as well.
That lunch time Daffy phoned me to see if I was okay as she’d noticed that I not been commenting on blogs, including hers, for a couple of days nor done my Thursday entry!
Yes I’m okay I told her…I’m just having one of those weeks with too many minor niggles! No, niggles not giggles! Chatting with her always brightens up my day.
Yesterday was a so-so day but the real plus point was that Allison@a tasteful garden has given me a honest scrap award! You’ll see that she says that I’ve got gardening prowess which made me smile somewhat quizzically.
Glo (Porcelain Rose) emailed me and listed several of what she thought were my minor niggles. I would quibble with her over the suggestion that my running out of tea and biscuits is one as that would definitely have been a major catastrophe!
Today was a beautiful sunny day so I spent a very pleasant and productive morning on the plot. More about that in a forthcoming post. Whilst there Joe kindly picked and gave me this bunch of chrysanthemums
So it’s been a bit of an up, down and up week, and please don’t remind me that it’s Friday the 13th next week!
