Many people who are currently working a six day week will tell you, that far from having a day off on their only work free day, that they end up doing all the things they have little time for on the days they do have to work. Chores like going food shopping,laundry,cleaning the car,cleaning the house and if the weathers nice tidying up in the garden.
My day off last week was no different to most, although I did get a chance to set up the camera with the remote and took some good photos of Starlings,Blackbirds and a Jayhawk. It was a busy day and a productive one as I got some of the jobs done, that i’d been meaning to do and as the weather was disappointingly inclement, didn’t miss the chance to do something more enjoyable.
Even though it was my day off I got up at the normal time,made a cuppa and watched TV for just over an hour or so.Feeding the birds is a morning ritual and they thoroughly enjoyed the feast I’d put out, allowing me to get some good shots. I’d had some free Sunflower seeds that came on the front of a magazine so next up was sowing them into three pots of varying sizes. Recently I’ve also put up a mini greenhouse so watering the seedlings was next on my agenda as the weather started to look gloomy.
It was at this point I decided to drive over to the club and do some other jobs that I’d put off for far too long. I loaded up my tools as well as the recharged batteries and headed off. It was showery but again my four hour visit was productive.I managed to repair the storage box roof at the back of the cabinchaletshed with the the help of some timber i had stored and also put some new felt on making it waterproof once again and as good as new.
Next as the rain fell I headed indoors and put up the TV on a wall with the aid of a movable bracket finally after clearing out the backbox I headed home to do some more jobs. The jobs I had in mind were plumbing in a Water Butt (it filled up later in the week and didn’t leak),cutting the grass and finally I watered the Plants as the sun shone brightly.
Then it was time for dinner so much for a relaxing day off
