I cursed yesterday...Part 2...

14 March 2017 14:52:46

The 1st part is somewhere in Cyber Space...

Yesterday Morning I decided to Mow the Grass outside the House on the Minor Road... the one that has the Wheel and Rut marks from passing Traffic...1st Impressions were not good , deciding to justify my angry mood at these inconsiderate Morons I proceeded to measure the distance from the Road edge to the Wheel mark on the Grass and came up with a measurement of 2 feet...several Ruts measured between 4 to 6 Inches in Depth making Mowing an almost impossible task anyway I decided to go ahead and try to put some shape on it....wasn't happy with the result............SSssoooo if any of ye out there hear of a Driver / Drivers who were in the Vicinity of my House and who suddenly got a dose of the "Runs" you know who wished it on them for the next year and beyond...

I also noticed the usual plentiful display of Daffodils at the Fencing has dwindled to a trickle that can almost be counted on one hand...would that have anything to do with the mild Winter / Spring Weather we have been having, very disappointing...on the other Hand the 2 Cherry Blossoms outside my Window are beginning to come into their best as is the Maple Tree with it's lovely White Flowers...pity the display only lasts a short time...

Yesterday I also managed to get down to the Arena with the aid of a Kneeler and cleaned up a load of last years decayed Foilage and a few Weeds...that Membrane is great stuff it keeps a Multitude of Weeds at bay...this Morning began lovely and Sunny but within an hour or so Cloud cover brought a chill and a Misty feeling overall, tis' then I began to dither as to whether I should begin construction of a replacement Gate to the side of the Conservatory that leads to the rear of the House which was damaged during recent Storms...decided to leave it for another Day...

Finished my Sulk...if this fails to appear I'm going up to Bed to Sulk again...this time in comfort with a Coffee and Crossword...

Did you ever try Sudoku? I find it great to take my mind away from problems like that.

Dont have the patience for that...the Crosswords are my limit...

I find a brandy works better !

Never touch Alcohol but it's at times like this I'd nearly be tempted...to me it's akin to driving on someones Lawn and doing Wheelies / Handbreak Skids...it's just not on, specially in view of the amount of work put into it...

Glad ths sulk is over :-) Very interested in your gate experience as I have a similar project in progress and am not sure if I'm up to actually constructing the gate!

Unless you have the proper Tools and Timber it's not a task I'd take on lightly...not seeing the Gate is it possible to patch it back together instead of making a complete new one... If it's beyond repair can you get a local D.I.Y Person to do it for you...Hope you get it sorted...

I so enjoy these glimpses into what drives people mad and how some people can construct a gate----beyond me -though my bridge hasnt collapsed yet after a year.-very very simple planks nailed to battons. Is that even the right word?

Geranimojess Geranimojess 30 March 2017 19:13:44

Near enough Scrubber...it's the effort you put into it that counts and if your happy with the end result that's all that really matters...take any compliments as a Bonus...
