Our first really good gardening day, and I have overdone it a bit as I always do!
Little got done in the house, but I always feel if one or two favourite spots in a room look good I can enjoy that and ignore the rest. The alcove in the sitting room is my favourite spot and the tulips didn't yawn or bite Cath, but lifted their heads, opened out a little and began to look like tulips!
I have learned to stop before I'm totally wiped out and I still have the energy for a simple meal with a glass of wine, to light some candles and to listen to Barbara for an hour or two before I tackle all the jobs still to be done (I'm an owl remember - I get a second wind about 10pm!)
( I think I find Barbara so relaxing to listen to because I'm far from fluent in French and have only the vaguest idea what she is singing about..)
Do you work till you drop when it's at something you like doing? Or have you learned to go at a more measured pace?
The alcove is newly painted..which makes the whole room feel fresher.
We're still enjoying the stunning photgraphy in 365 Ways To Save The Earth.
(Thank you Charlie and Mary.)
I always keep this surface uncluttered but when I lifted the book to check the title the clean patch revealed how dusty the rest is!
