Spring Has Spring

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Spring is here, well it feels like it anyway. The frogs and the newts are cavorting in the wildlife pond – nature has woken from the cold clutches of winter. This can mean only one thing, I will have to return to my second job, that of mud re-locator for my wife. After six years we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and I get the feeling this year may see the main jobs out of the way.

When we purchased the house the garden at the rear of the house was mostly lawn and not much else. The past few years have seen us create a wildlife area, a vegetable plot, put up a greenhouse and create an area for growing fruit. This year (and a little bit of next year) should see the last of the major reconstruction work on the leisure area. So on with the mud relocation and less of the hobby electronics and software engineering.

So first job, create a 40 metre by 10 metre lawn on uneven land (after levelling it of course).

I may be sometime…
