Sometimes you’ve got to go with the flow. Last night, well early evening, I went to bed very tired after the work I had done during the day. Mainly it was my upper arms and neck which ached the most through removing the grass and then the soil from it. Despite the fact that I was tired I found it difficult to get to sleep. This usually happens when I dwell on things and fill my thoughts with the problems I am faced with doing projects or any work at home. I lie there thinking about how I will tackle the work the next day. It was Thursday and I was up around two having finally gotten the sleep I needed. Around five o’clock I decided to take the bull by the horns and dig out the remaining grass from the new garden feature. The garden lighting would be enough to work under.

The picture was taken a couple of hours later as it was still dark when I had completed the work at six o’clock.  The two wheelie bins were full, though not all of grass so I couldn’t dispose of any more. I decided to place the new sods in one of the builders bags we have and put it under cover in the passageway behind the second garage. This would allow the soil to dry making it easier to remove at a later date. Doing it later would allow me to get on with the project. As it was Thursday I would be doing the weekly shopping but afterward the whole day was at my disposal. Maybe I could do some planting? Sometimes you’ve just got to go with the flow.
