I have had a busy sort of day, what with boring chores in the house, a husband with a headache ( he never gets headaches as a rule ) lolling around, calling me "nurse" and asking for cups of tea. I was sympathetic (honest).
Then I visited "Wickes" as I noticed that some plot-holders are using the thick blue water piping that plumbers use, to put over across their beds and covered with netting. It is a cheap and sturdy way to keep the pesky pigeons and the egg laying butterflies off the goodies that we grow. I have taken a photo (below) where you can just see it in place. It is bought in 25mtrs which obviously has to be cut to the required size of the bed, and it comes in 2 thicknesses the thinner one is £18. 45 per -25 mt, and the thicker one £19 + so not much more really. It could be cheaper elsewhere so I will shop around, but it's a brilliant idea to use it.
I have also got about 3 sewing projects on the go (I'm blaming Pam for that, she knows who she is !!) her blog is so full of lovely sewing and crafty things, it made me crave to get going again.
and now I have done blogging for today I'm of to get the patient something to eat.
