Well, all my gorgeous tomatoes and potatoes have got blight and have been dug up and dumped. I only had a handful of cherry toms and the huge Marmade ones had only just started going red when they all started rotting. I can't believe it, the second year running this has happened. St least the chili, peppers, aubergines and broad beans are still going strong.
On the plus side our menagerie of animals are keeping me amused. Misty is an absolute delight. I like to get up at 7am and feed the chooks, cats and geese and even if she is fast asleep she follows me down the garden, often with her eyes half shut. The geese have hard plastic paddling pools to bath in, and they need cleaning out every day. Misty likes to climb the magnolia tree next to the bath while I clean them. Once they are full, she likes to walk along the edges of them. Yes, she does fall in but it doesn't seem to bother her. I love our little morning routine together.
The geese have got a 'thing' about laundry. When I am hanging it on the line they like to come and investigate the laundry basket. The amount of times I have had to stop them nicking a sock or a pair of pants. Misty likes the laundry basket as well. She likes to sit in it and be carried up the garden in it. Oh course nothing is too much trouble for me where Misty Moo is concerned. She has been wrapped around her little finger.
I have been glued to the Olympics since they started. Team GB are doing brilliantly and I have screamed myself hoarse at the telly, and been in tears every time we have won a medal. Speaking of which I better get back to watching it. Thank goodness it is only every 4 years!
