green fingered Tref – ish
45 minutes swim to start the day. It’s an obvious thing but I do find the more I swim the more I find myself wanting to do more. Trouble is getting to the pool earlier is hard – the bed is nice and cosy and it’s frosty out. I would have been able to get there earlier had I not had to deice the car (s).
I feel as if I’m back in the fitness and healthy eating groove this week after last week’s trip to Barca. I do have a couple of day’s meetings that will end up in the pub to survive. And don’t go telling me I’ll just have to resist temptation:)
at 10am I started clearing yesterday’s trimmings into the green bins. This took me 90 minutes. It involved using the clippers to get most of the small green stuff off the branches so that they were easily compressed into the bins. The stick sized bare branches were put in one pile next to the woodpile and the bigger stuff onto the woodpile itself. Not a bad morning’s work really.
Had a chat with Dad, did some tripadvisor reviews from Venice and then had pea and watercress soup for lunch. All in all not a bad morning of it.
You do notice more when you are out in the garden. This morning I had a chat with a robin. He didn’t seem to have much to say so it was a little one sided! Flew off when my back was turned. Ah well.
After lunch went downtown to do a few chores, market, bank, vodafone shop. Signed up with Voda for a plan that includes 20GB data for £20 a month. It also included sky sports mobile. Tonight I rang EE to cancel their account and they matched the offer. Later I tried to install the sky app on my oneplus 2 phone only to find it is incompatible. Forced my hand really. Called EE back and accepted their offer.
Tomorrow I’ll call Vodafone and cancel their order. You have a 2 week period of grace in which to do it and in anycase they are unable to fulfil their side of the deal. The EE offer also included free EU calls and texts!
Featured image is a little in the shade but if you look carefully it shows some of the hedge trimmings I got rid of today.
Thassit for now. London tomorrow. See ya there.
PS I offer you a short video showing sparks flying at a building site at the top of Lincoln High Street.
