March 26, 2007
The clocks have gone forward and it really does feel like Spring now. I spent a few hours up the alltoment yesterday with my new toy- a Mantis rotavator. I thought I might have a bit of trouble getting it statred because it's a pull thingy (like they have on boats...) but it started first time and I was off!! I managed to get 3 of my beds rotavated and now the soil resembles cake crumbs and is ready for whatever I choose to plant. I had to have a quick check over the seeds I've bought to see what should be going in when but I think I might start them all off in the greenhouse first and then plant them out a bit later on. That will give me plenty of time to continue making sure my soil is just right! Oh the joy of an allotment and what's even better is that I can start going up after work now as it's lighter in the evening yippee!
On a different note the bedroom is definitely taking shape, HP is working hard on stripping the old bed and revarnishing it ready for some magical woodwork and then it'll be back to sleeping in comfy bed again - that calls for a 2nd yippee!
See lots of things to be bouncy about - tiggers (Spring) are wonderful things!
