Activity 1 was wondering what these shoots growing in a container in my yard were. I hadn't planted anything and couldn't think what was in there last year. I gently dug them up and found that they were from a bulb of garlic, which must have been a clove of garlic I planted last year but missed when I dug up it's brethren. I was totally chuffed because I was annoyed at myself for forgetting to plant any in November so it could get ready to grow over Winter, and now along comes this surprise garlic. I've separated it into cloves and replanted it.
Activity 2 was listing about 36 items on Amazon. I started off putting a couple of dvds on, then had a rootle round in the attic and found a mass of other stuff to go on. Four things have sold so far giving me a current total of £24 after postage, woo hoo!
Activity 3 was staring at this wall in my living room and wondering what to do with it. I don't want this room to be brown and cream any more but can't think of how to repaint it. I'd like something fresh and light and more lively than brown. I'd like to get rid of the rock formation as it takes up masses of space (it continues into the corner to the left and completely fills it) and just isn't my thing. But our house is rented so we're stuck with it. And whist I'm on the subject, how the hell has my mantelpiece got so cluttered? Where does it come from? It's a mystery to me. Also, no amount of repotting, trimming, feeding or loving attention seems to make any difference to the state of this scratty looking peace lilly in the boarded up fireplace. I've had it for years and now it just seems intent on withering up and dying.
Activity 4 was making a cafetiere cosy out of little squares and it just not looking quite right to me. You can't really tell from the photo but it's pretty wonky and I just don't think it's going to work, though I like how the little blocks of colour look. Hmmmm, this one's for pondering.
It was a relaxing and enjoyable weekend of pottering. What pottering have you been up to lately?
