    Not doing any gardening today, pulled a muscle in my back. Hubby has told me to rest. I'm a bit annoyed with myself could have been a good day.:sad:

      Its only a matter of time before it does take over. My wife makes cards as a hobby. Its taken over one room already. All of the storage is full of carding stuff … whatever that is

          I too, have been clearing out things I no longer use or need. I still have lots that I do use so reorganizing this stuff is needed. I am working through one room at a time and figure that by the time the ground thaws (April 25th or so) and gardening can start, I'll be finished and then have lots of time for outdoors.

          It is amazing just how much stuff one can accumulate!

            Yes i had to convince hubby to throw out some audio equipment that was in the spare wardrobe, he kept it for years thinking that he would use it again but no. More space for the Christmas tree and decorations.:snorky:

              I completely agree here ... but it is t'other half who is the hoarder, both in the office/spare room and shed. I just stay clear of it as much as I can. I am the type that everything HAS it's place and everything is IN it's place.

                This was our day on Wednesday.

                Bright but extremely cold.

                Golf course white with frost.

                But we're ready for anything. Orange balls are so much easier to see when there's frost.

                P1010015.JPG

                Winter wheels on my leccy trolley get a good grip.
                It doesn't look much but there's about at least two grand's worth of equipment there with the trolley, the bag and its contents. Don't tell the wife!

                Note the drinks holder for my cup of hot Bovril with a dash of chili powder before we play the tenth.

                  Going to see keith this afternoon, he's found someone who can sell his cards.
                  Last week i was pricing them up for him.
                  Someone at the local hospital has a stall inside.

                    I'm trying to get hold of Plusnet Customer Service as they have screwed up my bill payment. Again. Been with them for 18 months and not a problem. Renewed the contract and it's all gone to hell.
