New Shoes .......
At last I gave in and bought some new Cloggies,
Well truth be told I bought 2 pairs £12.99 off Amazon, I wanted the Town and Country Cloggies because that is what my old ones are, I hate the crock ones with holes in.
My old ones I have had about 4 years, there is no sole left on they are so thin I can feel every stone as I walk, they have so many splits in them my feet are always getting wet
so out with the old and now I have dry comfy feet. I also bought a new pair of wellies as again my old ones have so many splits.
So now I have my feet sorted.
Yesterday I made a lovely Coleslaw to go with my dinner
And topped it with toasted cashew nuts, I love nuts.
Today it was pancakes for lunch
Served with Maple Syrup, Jersey Cream Raspberries and Blueberries, while I was eating lunch I had a brain wave.
I have been cleaning out the greenhouse as there isn't much in there apart from slugs the ones I saw I chopped in half, my brain wave was the salt that was used for pickling the other day I got back out of the bin and made up a strong salt water solution and watered the gravel in the greenhouse, all the little slugs I missed suddenly appeared and died. So in future when I have salt left over from preserving I will keep it for slug war.
The greenhouse is all nice and clean and tidy again ready for its next job, the citrus trees have been outside enjoying a breath of fresh air
They have had a good feed and a bit of tidy up, I noticed some of the have a bit of scale insects on them, they have all been sprayed and will stay outside for the next few days, we have thunderstorms predicted over the next few days a good downpour will give them all a good wash down. Then they can come back in the greenhouse.
The small poly tunnel has had a tidy up as well and again the gravel watered with salt water, I have moved the pots of blueberries in there away from the birds and they have had a good feed of seaweed extract.
The first of the cinder paths between the raised beds is now complete time to start another one.
Baby Alpaca Imogen has had a sore eye my neighbour senior C came over this morning to help me clean it up, I also gave all the Alpacas a spray of fly repellent they are being pestered a bit.
All the washing is up to date and has been line dried
I have just done all the bins got in a load of logs.
I have also finished needle felting my elephant picture.
Sent off a parcel, all chores up to date ready for the rain coming tomorrow
I hope you all keep safe in the storms coming there is suppose to be some nasty ones, I am off to walk the dog then shower and put my feet up :-)
