So having finally managed to come through what has to be for me the worst bout of flu i have ever had, we ventured outside and down to the plot for a quick check up.
9 days i have been out of action, no blog posts, no work, no plot trips but plenty of aches, pains sleep ,sick, cough and general tiredness have all played their part in rendering me useless, never again do i want it to darken my path, it was so debilitating.
Even though it was really cold today, Annie and I visited the plot for a quick reccy, broad beans looking ok, kale and other fill ins (outside) are looking ok too despite the cold and strong winds that are still battering us, i was also pleasantly surprised and very pleased that my absence hadn’t caused any misgivings nor untold damage from blown over netting that could have been repaired should i have been quicker or alert.
Seedlings looking good and not as far on as i had thought, which leaves me time to relax more now knowing i don’t have a plethora of pricking out nor potting on to do.
I started doing a Tigers head in pastel before my untimely exit from planet ‘Alive and Kicking ‘ and it was a slow process but an enjoyable one, however i managed to stay awake long enough to put an end to it now, i used my new set of Stabilo pencils and Pastelmat paper.
This will be on another page later on destined for the Pastel Page.
