It's been decent this week but rain moving in on Sunday....this is what usually happens up here.....we get a good week or so then it turns shit. This past week is probably our summer.

done the edging (in preparation of strimming and cutting the grass tomorrow) and trimmed the hedge early this afternoon....weather was great for outdoor work....cloudy but mild. It has only burned off in the last half hour and is a fine evening.

I meant to say yesterday that our outdoor thermometer was showing 30 degs yesterday afternoon.....no wonder I was frying and had to sit in the shade.

started around 9.45am this morning and got the edging done then trimmed the hedge and had brekkers. Carried on and got the grass cut then shower. Wife wanted to go into Tescos and Aldis and although they're only a couple of miles away the traffic as usual was fucking choc a bloc for the most part. Rewarding myself with a few 'you know whats'.....I am bushed!

got the rest of the garage painted then trimmed the hedge. The missus then pulled a pile of leeks and rhubarb from the garden and I gave her a wee hand to pull some pea pods (we are going to have some crop this year).

I've been doing gardening lately. Weeded the flower beds. And cut the grass today. Also fenced off part of the garden from the dogs as they and the drought killed my grass.

That's what happens if you have muts mate....don't fence it off....let the dogs have the benefit of the full garden.

Only fences less that half of the garden off whilst I grow more grass. The last thing I want is a must patch in winter.

Are either or both dogs bitches?

That would explain the state of your lawn.

Bitches piss wrecks lawns. Really kills it dead. You would be better off paving the lot.

Been a mixed bag today. It was sunny then cloudy this morning when I started strimming around 9.20am. Got that done then started cutting the grass but had to stop about half way through when a constant bloody drizzle started and lasted for the best part of an hour. When it went off I just got the mower back out and although the grass was wet I said 'fuck it' and finished it. Back to Scottish weather mentality shite!

Did the edging and mowed the front lawn this morning.

Frickin low flying wasps everywhere.

I hate wasps, kill them whenever I can, what use do they have in the world other than to annoy everyone!!

Trying to get the grass cut. Managed to do the edging and got about 1/3 mowed then the fucking rain started....a heavy drizzle. I'll wait a wee while in hope that it fucks off.
