Hubby is outside now seeing what he can do to save the plants as the frame is a write off.
Wear and tear and weather fatigue has got the better of the metalwork and in the high winds last night, it was just too much.
He doesn’t know whether to make his own framework from wooden batten or purchase another metal arch. This one has been up for less than three years so there is the likelihood that the same thing will happen in another three. We shall see.
Not much on the agenda today as I’m waiting for the doc to call with my X-Ray results. I am a little anxious as the pain has not gone away, though I think it has moved to a more central part of my back where I know I have the arthritis. I shall ask her to put the pain meds on repeat prescription though as although I’m not taking them all the time or every day, they do help when I need pain relief. If physio is suggested, I’ll probably decline as the last time it wasn’t helpful as all the guy did was touch me once and suggest rolling exercises. At least with a chiropractor or osteopath they manipulated my joints, but I can’t afford to go private for sessions.
Lunch today is sausages, mash, our carrots and hopefully our sprouts. The butterflies have got in and laid eggs on the foliage so the leaves are now crawling with caterpillars. The stem is quite thick with ‘fruit’ so all being well there should be enough for a meal today.
