its ANZAC Day, and its a sunday, and i should have put 2 and 2 together and realised there was probably an ANZAC Day parade and service at Westminster this morning!. oh well...another year!. i must also add 'trip to Gallipolli' to my 'must visit before 2012' list!.

in other news!....finally got all the rest of the spuds in at the lottie, altho not in the bed they should have gone in, but a combination of weather, assignments and ill health have prevented me from getting that bed dug in time. so i have used another bed and corner of a second. i have 5 varieties in now. i also turned a growbag on its side, cut it open and sowed 2 rows of carrots. my ground is to stony for carrots in the ground. i was going to spend time de-stoning a bed but the combination factor mentioned above stopped me, so i came up with this idea last night. i've only used one half and will sow another 2 rows in about 3 weeks.

i brought home some of my tulips today and put them in a vase....beautiful 'Queen of the Night'....deep purple. i'll photograph them when they open a bit more.

been looking at houses with my flatmate to try and find something to move into....not much luck so far....either small rooms or bad parking, or crappy area!. got a month to find something, so fingers crossed we will!!.

'ello, 'ello, 'ello......

Yep, its been a while....figured people might be getting bored of the tom pics, so i wont post any today!!.
Not alot has been going on....getting back into the swin of 5 day weeks is not proving fun!!.....i find i still have a load to do on a sunday evening, and end up all stressy!. still....'welcome to the real world' most will be shouting at the screen!.

Finally managed to get 2 rows of spuds in at the allotment today....finished the bed yesterday, and it bloody near killed me....i should have stoppd, but there wasnt much more to do, and it was psycological.....when i went today, i knew i didnt have to dig!. ended up with heat stroke i think also yesterday, as well as dud back and backs of thighs, from bending over lots and digging wet ground!.
bad news.....still one more bed to dig!. will do it in small doses over the next few weeks....thank goodness for lighter evenings!.

Today i had a mammoth seed sowing session, as i've been a bit remiss with that....partly due to circumstance here, so i've set them in a growhouse on the lottie and hope they will be ok....looks like the wind has given it a bit of a bashing....i noticed a broken part today. fingers crossed it'll last this summer!.

not much else going on....i have to come up with something for a handmade swap i'm in on ALS....but cant say to much more as my blog is featured in the blog roll call on there!!.

glorious weather for a change...i was in short sleeves at the lottie...the sun was warm, birds were singing and a beautiful old warbird went over.....gotta love the rumble of a warbird!.
