Good bye March, Hello April

March was another really busy month of pottering with lots of legwork for later on going on in the garden.

The seeds we planted earlier in the month came through on the dining room table in about three days.  I know, what a pain.  We had no time to pot on before going on holiday so they had to be transported to mum's for care whilst we were away.  Definitely a job for early April.

We've also done lots more research into Will Sidney's war and I've published the first two posts about who he was and how we are researching his story.  The next post will tell you all we've been able to find out about his life before the war started.

April is looking like it will be even busier than March, how did I ever find time to fit work in?  We started the month off with us on our first cottage holiday of the year in Derbyshire, we were away in The Peak District for Martin's birthday, where we had a very busy week.

The rest of the month is looking busy with lots of birthdays and social engagements, catching up with friends that we haven't spent time with for too long - we are all just so busy. There is also more time for Governors meetings and teacher interviewing on the agenda before school breaks up for Easter.

The Easter weekend will see our big push in the garden.  This is when we will get the temporary greenhouse built, probably paint the raised beds, pot on all our seedlings and do more planting.

We also have another garden project that we want to progress which is to rebuild the fence on the side border of the front garden as this is dropping to pieces. We already have all of the wood, cut to size, and this has had its first coat of Sadolin.  So, that just needs another coat before we can start to rebuild. 

Along with that, we've now had the new front gate delivered, so that will need painting and hanging, with new posts.

Top priority has to be to catch up with my blogging as there's another two instalments to come about our holiday, along with the next post in Will Sidney's war and my garden planning project.  I've also had a request for some fish recipes, so I think a fishy lasagne may be coming your way.

I'm also planning to have a go at film making.  I bought Martin an HD video recorder for his birthday about four years ago and, whilst we've had a go at recording a few films, we've never transferred any to the PC for editing.  The first go will be on one of the walks we did whilst we were in Derbyshire, so watch this space.

Once all that's done we'll be thinking about getting ready to go on holiday again.  We always go away for our Wedding Anniversary and this year we have a cottage booked in North Wales.

I am still loving writing about what I am getting up to so please, please keep reading.  I've not had any comments for a while so if you read something and it makes you feel like saying something then I'd love to hear what you've got to say.

And finally, if you'd like to see a specific recipe, or have any that you want to share, or have anything else that you'd like to hear about, then just let me know, I'd love to hear from you.
