    Finished mate's door this morning whilst I sipped coffee and enjoyed the sunlight which was directly into my garage. Perfect.

    Kids entertainment crew aren't due till after lunch but that's fine 'cos then I can continue watching Vingegaard's Basque training camp and the women's PR.

    It's still dry! 😎 More garden fettling, evict those bleepin' furrins Spanish... bluebells, thousands of the barstewards already bagged. Bed prep, maybe get planted out this little dwarf crab apple tree I've kept tubbed up these past 3 years.

    Mayhap get a ride in laterz, if enough energy remains.

    Enjoy the springtime peeps.

    Would you like some native bluebell seeds?
    Only - if you have any remaining Spanish bluebells, they can cross breed into fertile hybrids.

    Though (as I have discovered), Spanish bluebells have been here for 300 years, so what is 'native' ?

    Bleedin' furrins!

    The w-i-p area next the greenhouse which is to become a raised bed. Repeated hits with glyphosate and they're still growing, if a lot paler.



    while these wee 'beauties' have been hit twice and look in fine fettle. No way to dig them out of the crevices. The war will be long and challenging.

    Afternoon folks, currently sat on a bench in mildly sunny Wombledon town. I'm outside what was the town hall, now a Tesco Express. Is this progress? Meeting friends daughter and small person then going to the Common for a stroll.

    Another lie in, why not. Popped down to Tunbridge Wells to get a few things and now stopped back I town getting a bite. New rake turned up earlier so will do the extra gravel on the parking area later (me emptying.sacks of gravel and Mrs. 666 supporting with the rake to make sure its nice n tidy...)

    Paraquat? Now that "we've taken back control"? Wotz rong wiv usin' compounds that are toxic to humans eh?

    Tried a variation by adding detergent to the mix, attack the waxy leaf cuticle which resists active contact with the glyphosate. That and flame gun attacks to come.

    Went over to Devon for a bit, met up with Mrs B3's niece, who is also mini's 43 year old cousin, what with Mrs B3's eldest sister being quite a lot older, and having her first kid young.

    Now sitting in a chair, and I might just close my eyes for a bit, being old.

    Ahhh to be able to close one’s old eyes without being pestered for bubble tea, Easter eggs, all manner of food and drink, going to the park, playing table tennis etc etc etc.

    flavoured tea based drink served with chewy flavoured tapioca balls. Originating from Asia. Kids like it.

    Evening
    A bit slow start today, kicked off walking the dogs. Then a bike ride on which I didn’t need full winter gear, I seem to have ridden 180 miles plus this week. Which is not bad I think given I only started riding again 4 weeks ago.
    It can only go downhill from here.

    They'd like bubble tea if it was in the shop down the road. I hate it, it's like getting globs of fruity snot in your drink.

    Flat pack assembly finished, well, Mini's wardrobe is. Mrs B³ is making a bit of a pig's ear of painting the hall a vile shade of mint green, after having bought some flat pack drawers for the wardrobe without measuring the width of the wardrobe, with predictable results. I built the drawers first, then went to fit the runners, and realised the drawers are approx 250mm too wide. 🙄

    Glad it worked, they threatened me with similar almost 20 years ago. Thankfully it turned out I didn't need it.
