What a lovely day, I was able to go out in just a cardigan, I do like a cardigan, and do some gardening.

I expect I am not alone in once I have started I get carried away, Ronald is always telling me to slow down. He is such a SILLY-BILLY , us ladies know that we can keep going far longer than you occasional gentlemen. We are even HAPPY DOING IT ON OUR OWN.

Ronald was VACUUMING and cleaning the inside of my little SOFT-TOP FIAT 500, he is such a dear. So I thought I would take the opportunity of SAWING a ROGUE branch off my WEEPING CHERRY. I thought to have had it done by the time Ronald was finished, otherwise he would have insisted on doing it.

Just a little problem I could not use my right hand as my shoulder is too painful so I attempted it with my left. I had the CO-ORDINATION of a DRUNKEN SAILOR which did not help but with PERSEVERANCE I managed to get the SAW STUCK halfway through whilst trying to support the heavy branch and stop it falling on any plants, all the time BALANCING on the edge of a wall.

It was at this point that I realised I was STUCK! I couldn’t let go of the SAW, I couldn’t let go of the BRANCH and my arms were feeling as if they would drop off.

I peered over the top of the FENCE across the PARK and across the FIELDS to where I could see my dear friend Teresa’s house, wondering if she would be looking across to the VILLAGE in her BINOCULARS. She does like to keep an eye on us all and if she was SPYING , I mean looking, then she might see my PLIGHT.

You will be relieved to know that Ronald came out to fetch something from his shed and RESCUED me; which was necessary but still made me cross.

Yours Weedily



20140217-025613-pm.jpgSLUT’S WOOL & CROWN, sounds like a PUBLIC HOUSE as in PUB or TRENDY WINE BAR.

It started with the CROWN which the PRINCIPLE BOY had part made, the red QUILTED part. My job was to finish it and as you can see from the picture, I added some GOLD and SILVER trim over the red with a Christmas bauble on top as an enormous jewel with some more trim around. Finished off with a band of ‘ERMINE’, really a piece of cream VELVET with spots drawn on with a black felt-tip pen, with a row of sequins on top edge. It will look good on the stage.

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman I apologise for the ‘SLUT’S WOOL’ remark but that is an old DEVON expression for the DUST that collects and forms a fibre that looks like one could KNIT with it.
Where does it come from? Now I don’t want you to think I have a dirty house because that is not true. Ronald is always VACUUMING and TIDYING up, it is one of his many good qualities. Still this SLUT’S WOOL appears!

How does this stuff appear from nowhere? You VACUUM, clean floor, two days later SLUT’s WOOL.

Yours Dustily
