I decided to be kind to myself and have taken time off work, a half day on Wednesday and yesterday, I didn't go in at all. Our internet was playing up so that means I can't do much anyway.
So I sat in my recliner most of the day, watching YouTube videos (I'm into American homesteading at the moment), keeping warm, snoozing.
I had an horrific night on Wednesday. I couldn't get comfortable with my ribs, muscles pulling and grabbing - I was up and down for hours.
Last night I slept more comfortably, with the hot wheat bag on the sore spot. I woke at 12.42am then slept until 5.46am. Yay! I'm feeling better, less sore this morning but I need to still take it easy and not do too much just because I feel better.
I can feel a nice slow weekend coming!
It always amazes me how these two silver birches get their leaves a few weeks apart. The one on the right has sprouted and the other is yet to green up.
Same with these two, even though we planted them a year later...
Lovely fresh growth on my standards...
I am loving the succulents that I got for my birthday from my sisters!
They're doing well out under the pergola, so far!
I'm not sure what to do with this disaster. I have't pruned the roses, there are weeds galore, oh dear! And I have no idea when I'll get to it!
My lemon thyme is flourishing...
Volunteer mint, it's popping up everywhere. Any ideas how to harvest and store it! If I freeze it, it isn't great when thawed. Could I hang it upside down and dry it? Then chop and store in a jar?
Well, I'd better go do a bit then pop into work...but not for long. Rest, Joolz!
