Today is Tuesday, 20th April

It is now three in the afternoon, and although we haven’t been anywhere, we’ve been busy.
Hubby has now completed the chip repair on the car and it has come up a treat. We had also noticed a few scratches which have been sorted by some wonderful cream the motor shop gave us for the Hyundai. It’s not colour matched and works similar to the old T-cut you used to be able to buy, so for a hairline scratch, it’s ideal.

We had a walk in the park first thing and I took some more pictures of the ducklings.
It was pretty quiet, and we managed to walk further than we have for the past couple of days, so that was a big plus.

Our neighbour needed something done on the internet and asked for Hubby’s help as it involved scanning in documents. She actually gave us her printer when ours packed up as she never used it, so it was no trouble once Hubby got the software installed on his new laptop, something we’d overlooked on setting things up for him. He is still pleased!

Lunch was a success. We had the same thing, that being chili and a jacket potato, and I have enough for tomorrow. Hubby whizzed his portion of the mix, and I added a small amount of salad to my plate. For dessert, I defrosted some mangoes which he mixed with instant custard and I had grapes and yogurt with mine.

The garden is coming along and the onions coming up a treat. We seem to have lost all but one of our tomato plants thanks to two mornings of heavy frost, even though they were in the greenhouse. Hubby has planted some more seeds and we shall see what happens.

Our neighbour across the way invited me to take some cuttings of their lilac bush.

These pictures were taken last year, so I hope the cuttings take as the smell is wonderful!

Onward with the day then.
Hope yours has started well. Keep safe everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. It sounds like a busy but happy day.

    Lovely flowers.

  4. If the cuttings don’t work take them at a different time. Dormant is a good time to take cutting on shrubs or trees.

    Sounds like you had a very good day! We had snow… I love lilacs! Hope the cuttings take and you can have your own bushes!
