All blooming life you're feeding

Thanks for the welcome back - it was lovely to hear from you all.

I'm part through some blogs but will admit to reading just the last few posts of most. Many of you I will catch up with in the next week or so and I'm looking forward to that very much.

I've decided that weeding is rather like exercise - dire but necessary and can only be accomplished if I trick myself into it. Also both activities usually end up with me in pain and whingeing.

So the last couple of days have been spent hanging out the washing and plucking a weed or two along the way; hauling bags from the car to the house and back again etc. Net result is I'm about a 2/3 the way through the back garden and 1/3 the front. Tomorrow should see another 1/3 of the front done because I've bought some pansies and seaside daisies for a bed that is currently weed infested.

This morning I took the last crop of TTWC's for a photoshoot and weeded most of the back garden as a result. See - tricked myself into both weeding and exercise.

Welcome back Taph! I've missed your posts. Hopefully see you tomorrow night at SnB?

What a clever way to weed. I think the hardest part is thinking I have to do it all at once and that is such a horrendous idea that I give it up and don't do it at all. I have hated to weed my whole life. I even bargained with my mom that I would cook dinner if I didn't have to weed.

Feel like tricking yourself into weeding our 2 acres of garden - how about if I trick you? Damn. Made 5 of your bulky beanies for Mongolia while you were away - takes me 1 hour and 35 minutes (including the seam) Love the time thieves!
