This could become boring but as the weather was against me for a walk, sleety rain just as I was about to set off, so more sorting of the shedudio.
I got a new chair! The old one was given to me by a friend,,,,. Despite numerous cushions it did not give any support to the damaged back. So-
It is very like the one I bought for working on the computer in the house, which is black and does not have arms. Both came from Argos. The only 'fault' with them is that when I throw myself onto either I shoot backwards! Which to be honest is quite good fun.
They have a curved back so support the spine better.
The chest of drawers. Well, like an old friend, I cannot get rid of it. There are many gouges, (hope its not ivory round the keyholes), but I love it. So no matter what it is staying.
I moved and bubble wrapped the framed paintings which were on the top.
Discovered the stereo ! Have yet to check whether it still works, no reason why not. So you visit my studio and in the background peaceful music. Ahhhhh.
I moved the small IKEA drawers onto the shelf/seat below the windows. These contain very important things like ribbons, hooks, plant labels, seeds, sewing stuff - I do still have a sewing machine, stored underneath the shelf/seat at the other side of the shedudio.
I also watched the birds. On the ground here are Chaffinch, male and female and Goldfinches. Lots of activity in our garden. Tree Sparrows nesting. Their nest box unfortunately blew off a couple of days ago. The DP put another one up for them and they are back in building a nest. We think the Blue Tits are nested and brooding as we only see one at a time who selects a seed and flies off. This will be for him/her . Despite warnings about feeding peanuts we now know from experience of watching that once the babies are hatched the parents seek grubs etc for their babies and grab a peanut or whatever for themselves and to boost their energy levels. So please do not stop feeding your birds in the garden.
As I have been feeling better re the back and the chest infection got nipped in the bud I have sent off for this offer in our local newspaper. 72 perennial plants for £19.99p. Amazing. All the ones I want. They come in plugs. Over the moon with this offer. Just hope the back will bend and whatever I can find to make it work to get these into the ground.
