I decided to have the day off yesterday as hardly anyone else in my department is around which limited me on some of the stuff I had to do. Yes I could?ve gone in but as I?ve got holiday left to use up I thought I?d spend the day doing something constructive and so I spent quite a while in the garden clearing a lot of the weeds. The above photo is of a frog who I thought would be quite photogenic and didn?t mind posing for a few minutes.
In the end I filled up 6 blackbags worth and also set about chopping up some wood which remained from when I cut down our very large fir tree last year. Most of the branches had already been taken to the recycling depot but I still had three large trunks left which had been sitting at the bottom of the garden. I wanted to take all this to the depot too and so the trunks had to be cut up into a managable size to fit in the car and this was accomplished with an electric mitre saw for the smaller ends and by hand saw for the thicker parts.
If I can spend an hour or so after work each day doing this then I can hopefully make some progress. I?ve started from the back of the garden and will hopefully be able to start laying a patio there once it?s been properly weeded.
Anyway?. better get back to work as I?ve got a fair bit to do!
