We had a rather nice Father’s Day weekend, with Debbie’s Mum and Dad coming over to use for lunch on Sunday, and then her daughter and fiance turned up as well.
The roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, peas, carrots and Mediterranean vegetables went down really well, as did the apple pie and custard afterwards.
Saturday it was really windy, and in the morning I managed to take the compost bin apart and re-position it, as it was beginning to lean badly. Problem was that a lot of the content, especially the grass cuttings, had congealed into solid lumps, which were big and heavy to lift with a garden fork, and the ash from the incinerator that I had only emptied into the bin a couple of weeks ago decided to blow everywhere, which was a nuisance. But I succeeded in sitting it on a new base and re-filling it, another job out of the way.
Later we went out to B&Q to return some solar garden lights that weren’t working too well, and the replacement set seem to be ok at least, and also went to the supermarket for a quick top-up shop.
We did strike it lucky though on a visit to the local recycling centre, where as well as taking things to dump or to be recycled, they have items for sale that people no longer want. Managed to pick up a kitchen cart in nice condition for £5. It was rather wobbly, but only needed the fixings tightening up with an allen key, so Debbie was well pleased with that.
All in all not a bad weekend, with some sporadic sunshine and no torrential rain for a change.
I hope your weekend was equally as good.
