Why does Sunday come round so quickly?Sunday morning we clean.One week I do upstairs and C does downstairs.The next week we change.You see different things that need doing.I hate cleaning and just have to convince myself that I am burning calories.
Sunday I always speak to my brother.We decided to do this many years ago because he never phoned me.Now we speak at lunchtime when he has come back from church.Today I got up feeling quite down.Yesterday Sarah's birthday was great.All I can put it down to is that I have a very busy week coming up and perhaps I am a bit daunted.A bit of cleaning sorted that out.
C decided he needed to mow the front lawn and I decided I needed to tackle a dead Kerria Japonica.It died last year and when I googled it the RHS said it is caused by a disease which affects only Kerria.We have a new battery powered hedge trimmer so I set to with this and did the job.I felt quite pleased with myself.We have the possibility of a new problem in the garden.We have squirrels but they have started building a drey in one of our trees.I really do not want a family of them.They bury conkers in pots and beds and the lawn and then dig them up.Googling squirrel deterrents got me nowhere.The only suggestion was chilli flakes.They don't like the smell.The man in the garden centre also suggested this.I haven't got chilli flakes but a bottle of very strong chilli sauce which we have liberally spread round the trunk and on the fence.I bet you haven't got chilli sauce in your garden!!!
Tomorrow we go to the theatre to see Ian McKellen in his one man show for his 80th birthday.C went to the same school as him and has left some reviews of a school playIan M was in aged 15.
