Every day I change their water and the previous day's water pot comes back in frozen solid.
This has been the view from my back door all week - pretty but not practical!
I hope you can see that the fence on the right-hand side of the garden is now painted and finished? I still have the left-hand side to do! I think it looks a lot better in its rich brown colour.
All the shrubs have been trimmed back and re-shaped. They will enjoy renewed vigour in the Spring.
I've tried to keep the path clear, but every time I cleared it, it snowed again!
I've been trying to keep the birds fed. They appreciate my efforts and it is an effort because just keeping upright is an effort! First I cut up the bread into the right sized pieces; then I measure out the mealworms for the robins to eat.
All this snow outside has given me the opportunity to decorate the kitchen. I have spent a week of hours, so far, stripping the walls of wallpaper. Here's how I'm getting on.
I've decided to strip off the paper behind the cooker today but I need a bit of help to move the cooker first. It's a gas cooker and it's fixed to the wall. I need a big strong man to move it for me. Any offers??
When I've done that, I have the awkward area behind the boiler to negotiate. Lots of twisting and turning.
I know you like to read about my suffering, so I'll tell you that once the paper is all off and the floor cleaned and tidied, I will need to sandpaper down the walls. Is that enough suffering?
No? well how about a trip to the dentist next Thursday for a root canal treatment?
Roll on Friday when I get to look after my grandson for the afternoon while his mummy has her hair done.
Have a great Sunday.
