I have just sat down after 7 hours in the garden.
I started out slow because we had a late night last night and I was feeling the effects of a bit too much social cheer. But once I got going I soon perked up.
We had a skip delivered and had a lot of tree prunings to shift. And once DH got the chainsaw going there were a whole lot more prunings. So after a full day for both of us, the skip is full and the garden is looking a lot lighter. I now have two very sunny banks to plant, where once there was shade.
My garden is very shady, so having some sunny spaces is very very exciting. I am so looking forward to weeding them and planting.
What a joy it was today to be gardening so vigorously: reaching, stretching, hauling, dragging branches down the 106 steps to the street and heaving them into the skip. I just kept going, and though DH did most of the work, I never stopped. Except to make lunch.
What a difference from when I was lugging around all that weight, it was a true burden, now lifted.
I think I have pinched a nerve, however, and have sciatica. I've never done this before but I do think that might be it. I guess time will tell.
Have a great weekend, Sparkers.
