    Mike's Patch

    As my previous thread was getting a tad long thought it was time to start again so keeping with the alliteration theme Mike's Patch sprung to mind

    Just a bit about me I've suffered from depression on and off for 25 years and probably from my late teens looking back though I didn't know what it was then.

    Just pull up a bench or sit on the grass and I'll provide the tea, coffee and cake and not forgetting that golden nectar custard.

    As promised my arches
    Leading down the garden path


    Leading on to the main lawn


    Finally the honeysuckle against the right-hand fence.

    Those arches are beautiful. Do you know I never get tired of seeing your garden, it really is amazing.

    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    Well I had an argument with a T-section metal bar (an anchor for some netting to replace some flimsy tube) yesterday, was drilling a hole in it (cheap drill bit and applying too much pressure) and it flipped up in the vise (vibration must've shaken it loose), just a slight gash no stitches needed so all good.

    Just listened to Girls with Guitars CD, brilliant for you blues/rock fans out there, not watched the DVD yet.

    Just back from the Boundary Stone all day breakfast (2 sausages, bacon, 2 eggs, grilled tomato, chips and baked beans and for pud choc fudge cake and CUSTARD, had a hot choc to finish off.

    Yesterday (Saturday) had coffee round at my neighbours and came home with a big bowl of apple crumble (enough for 3 decent sized portions) so that after dinner pud sorted for Saturday, Sunday & Monday.

    My neighbour (she's a bit of a bookworm) lent me a book To kill a mocking Bird just started reading it (no spoilers please), read two dozen pages so far and like the style of the writing.

    To kill a mockingbird is a classic. Hope you love it.
    You sure you don't need to get that cut checked out?

    I agree with the others. To kill a mocking bird is a great book. Garden looks wonderful Mike. Going to take some pictures of the rocking horse for you later. Barely started but i have cut out and sanded the rockers and working on the legs next. Its so nice to see neighbours communicating again with coffee. I dont even know who my neighbours are. Although i do have an image of Les Dawson and ROy Barraclough in my mind now.
