Best/Worst 10 to 16 July 2017

Welcome to the new week.


Rain. Finally on Tuesday, it poured down for most of the day. A day with rain is a day that I don’t have to water the plot! The rain also calmed down the pollen and that’s a really good thing…

Dinner with the Kennys. Actually dinner at Tom and Yoey’s, but Christina was there too. They are lovely and interesting and clever and if they are typical millenials, the world is going to be ok.


Work. Again. Yes it is my busy week and yes I am in migraine week so I maybe this is affecting how I feel about it. But I’m was so glad to get to the end of this week in the knowledge that there are 3 more weeks before I have a birthday and am off for a week and don’t have to run around for this meeting.

Aphids. Blackfly everywhere, greenfly on the sweetpeas. I’m seriously considering chemicals. Everyone is saying ladybirds but they are expensive and I’m broke. They are everywhere and I had to chop the borage and the rhubarb down because they were infested. Bloody ants…

Honourable mentions to the story of Oli’s Saturday run, conversations with friends, tea in the shed, gin with Ma, working from home on Friday, Sunday afternoon naps and crops..
