This week in the garden, 2


Nothing


Zilch


Zip

 
Nada




I have excuses reasons:

Monday - at Moffat
Tuesday - driving home with caravan
Wednesday & Thursday - rubbish weather and the post-trip laundry mountain took  priority
Friday - ah yes, Friday; started so well . . . walked Daisy, did supermarket and other errands, came home, pottered around - and late afternon was struck down with something that could only be described as food poisoning.  No idea where I picked that up?  Nothing strange had been consumed, M and Daisy were perfectly OK so our best guess is maybe I touched something whilst out (supermarket trolley?).
Weekend - collapsed, curled up, did a bit of sewing.  Binge watched the box set of Doc Martin which I bought with some Christmas money.  Am I the LAST PERSON in the world to discover this programme?  What a joy and delight, so gentle but very clever.

It's all First World problems and the garden will still be there tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that.

  1. After such a lovely holiday, being poorly wasn't such a good end to the week. Glad you took it easy over the weekend. Fancy just discovering Doc Martin. We've watched it since the beginning on our ABC channel (equivalent to BBC), and love it. We even visited Port Isaac in 2009. Beautiful & have a snap of Hubby posing outside Doc's residence. Have a better week & take care. Huggles. BTW, is it snowing there?

    1. Thanks Susan, I think I might have been to Port Isaac but it was more like 1969 . . .

      There has been snow on the fells but none at the house and most of what I could see has gone now.

  2. I think I watched a couple of episodes when John was away once and enjoyed them. They're so not his cup of tea though so didn't get back to them. Maybe one day. The iPad in the studio is being useful for some tv catch up of late. Hope you're feeling better very soon.

    1. Hi Amanda, it is not really M's thing either so I watch them when he's busy in his study. Much better thanks.

  3. Sorry to hear you've not been well Jayne, I hope you're feeling better by now - I'm sure the garden can wait until you are.

    I watched the first couple of programmes of Doc Martin when it very first started but it's not really my cup of tea so I haven't seen it since. At the moment I'm catching up on old episodes of Heartbeat - I've been watching it on ITV3 but they seem to repeat the same ones over and over and I couldn't remember the very early years so I'm building up a collection of the dvds, one series per month. I'm now watching series 8 but I've quite a way to go yet as there were 17 altogether.

    1. Thanks Eunice, pretty much back to normal now, I think :)

      Now I could never get on with Heartbeat . . . at least you've got 17 series to catch up on, I will have worked my way through Doc Martin in a couple of weeks at this rate!

  5. Poor you - hope that you are fully recovered.
    Doc Martin type programmes sadly are rare these days, Just wish he was nicer to the dog. :-)

    1. Thanks Sue, much better now :)

      I'm only on series 2, so no spoilers please! I'd like to know who in Portwenn looks after the dog when it's not stalking Martin Clunes!!

    2. Definitely no spoilers forthcoming. I'll leave that to the stupid trailers that they insist showing on TV :-)

  6. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better Jayne. I carry a packet of antiseptic wipes in the car and when we have been shopping I always clean my hands with them before I drive off. I know it is a bit OCD but when you see all those people coughing and sneezing and then holding on to the trolly I don't care how I sound!! I have just got over a horrible cold which has been going on for three weeks and spoiled our New Year. I am on the right side of it. Though it did give me the chance to look at Seed Catalogues for this year.:)

    1. Funny you should say that Catherine, but when I popped out for a few things this morning I added a bottle of hand sanitizer which now lives in the car . . . I just have to remember to use it!

  7. Sorry I also meant to say that I have never watched Doc Martin, even though both my sister's love it as I don't like the actor Martin Clunes.Sorry...

    1. That's actually quite funny - one of the reasons I never bothered with Doc Martin before is that I loathed "Men Behaving Badly" and assumed Mr Clunes would irritate me just as much . . . I was wrong 😊

    2. I was the same about MBB but Clunes has done some good stuff since. He's grown up and what's more is an animal lover.

  8. Sorry you haven't been well Jayne ,,, hope you are feeling better. I always wash my hands as soon as I get home from shopping. Sanitiser in the car is a great idea! Cold grey damp horrible foggy weather here and the garden is sodden so not much incentive to go out there at the moment although I can see lots of bulbs poking up through the wet leaves. Saw a bullfinch in the garden this morning, a real treat if it leaves the buds alone and a buzzard is around too. First time ever I have seen one actually land in the garden. Quite like DM too and visited the lovely Port Isaac when we were in Cornwall for my 60th.

    1. Morning Jill, sorry to take ages to thank you for your lovely comment. Bullfinches here too, we have a couple of pairs every year.
