the sun was out today. like, PROPER .
so i abandoned Everything Else in favour of gardening(ish).
oh maybe it doesn’t look so bad on the internet? the knee-high grass has disguised the stack of bricks, and the hawthorn’s so overgrown you can barely make out the cement mixer :)
all i had to do today was make a start on clearing “a bit”.
so i can rebuild the steppy-up brick wall
or sieve a load of top soil (it’s been bagged up so long, the weeds growing out of it are as high as my waist)
or dig up more grass to lay the paving slabs
or dig up more grass to put gravel
or dig up more grass to make another raised bed for my veggies
because i’m certain that self-sufficiency will occur just as soon as that area of the garden is under control.
i hope so.
“just make a start, fiona. anywhere you like. just a start. not the whole thing in one day, just a little bit.” <— i talk to myself a lot. i need gentle coaxing.

“oh. oh okay, this is good too”
