Monday Miscellany

Last week seemed ridiculously busy, I don’t think it actually was but Monday night was a transport nightmare and then something I had to get done ate up an hour and a half of my life! I was out on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. All things I wanted to do but I feel that another day at home just pottering about would be a good thing!
I went to a football match on Friday night, it was old Chelsea players vs old Inter Milan players. We lost 4-1 and I have to say it the old Inter players looked much fitter than our guys! The next day the actual Chelsea team, won the FA Cup, which was the important news of the day!

When I’m in the vicinity of a TV and there’s football on I watch it but I much prefer watching it live. It’s just better, I think it’s because I grew up with limited football on TV but with a lot of actual football matches in my life and still not as many as B did. If I won the lottery I’d want a season ticket!We did all the planting on the plot on Saturday and this morning when I went to water, some of the plants where not doing too well, I’m a bad plant parent.

My plans for the week involve leaving the house at 7:30am every morning this week. I also have a doctors appointment, I’m babysitting on Tuesday night and there is allotment watering to attend to!  So not too busy, not too relaxed. What are your plans for this week.

    Oh no, your poor plant (am secretly glad I’m not the only one to do this!)!

      It’s pretty sad, all the dead tomatoes and cucumbers, the courgettes and squash are doing really well though and it’s good not to be the only plant murderer when I feel surrounded, in real life and online, with super competent gardeners!

        I’ve found it’s quite emotional having to deal with all the little deaths – the responsibility mounts up! (I’ve also killed a courgette, vegetable spaghetti, echinacea, sunflower, and my beans are looking less than pleased).

    Also, I know what you mean about being surrounded by competent gardeners! I’ve hidden my beans behind a fleece at the plot, and I’ve been putting off writing a blog post as I’d have to face the true extend of my murdering ways!

    • nicdempsey says:

      Ah yes! I plant beans and peas straight in the ground because if they fail to grow, it wasn’t me! I’m at least getting to the murdering phase, a couple of people I know had every single one of their tomatoes fail! I just tell myself that the ones that live will be really strong! I’m not murdering them so much as weeding out the weak ones!
