I have finally made a start on the garden.
The thing is, I'm no great fan of the outdoors. It's full of spiders and bugs and dirt and all kinds of other things I dislike. So, since we've moved in, the garden has been pretty much left to its own devices. This week I've spent hours and hours cutting back nettles, mowing the lawn, weeding, and generally having actual contact with living plant life.
There is still a lot to do, but it's getting there.
When I haven't been gardening (helped along by spilling coke all over my laptop and having no better distractions for a week), I've been sorting out our endless junk, selling stuff on ebay, and working on the family tree. I can see myself really getting into the latter as a hobby - it's so interesting! I'm using Ancestry and it's kind of like playing a game because you put in so many details, then the site suggests a bunch of records which may or may not correlate with your relative. It's addictive. :)
☆ READING: True crime. Let's face it, I'm always reading true crime!
☆ WRITING: To Do Lists.
☆ WATCHING: Anthony decided he had a burning need to rewatch That '70s Show. All eight mind numbing seasons of it. If I ever see any of it again it will be too soon.
☆ LISTENING: Double Dutch - Malcolm McLaren.
☆ WEARING: Gardening gloves.
☆ EATING: I'm back on the diet, so lots of fruit and veg.
☆ REVIEWING: I took part in the Mother & Baby Awards testing this year, so have been busy reviewing Tesco baby bath and talc, a baby monitor, nightlight and a potty. Expect to hear more about the latter very soon. :)
I can't blog from my phone, it's just too frustrating! So there have just been tumbleweeds over the last week while I waited for the new laptop to arrive. I did backdate a few new category master posts though, like Frugal Living and Family History.
