Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest!

Embee decided that today was the day he would mend the fence panel that broke in the heavy winds a week ago. He gave me warning that I would need to be there to help. Fair enough, however I have learned from bitter experience that I am expected to know exactly what is needed without clear instructions. When I get it wrong which, of course, I invariably do, I then get shouted at. Today I managed quite well and only did two things wrong. Now if you were told to take two bricks down to the fence would you think about measuring them to have them the exact same size!Once in place I can see why this was important. That's the other thing I failed to do properly first time. Silly me for placing the bricks the wrong way under the fence. Holes drilled and screws in place so far so good. Oh and in case you think all I was doing is taking pictures -you would be wrong! I was the poor soul with a bent back holding the batten in place while all the holes were drilled.My mother decided she would come out and watch the proceedings.Before taking away the brick I pointed the camera under the fence for an I-spy photo!It was then time to take a well earned rest while 'someone' brought out the coffee.
Then himself decided to do a bit of pruning at the front of the house, and I did some border weeding at the back. So a good day all round. Hope whatever you are doing, that you are having a pleasant day.

for once you are having better weather than we are. It's drizzly here and I wanted to go out and get some fresh air :(

Sam I can't believe we have it better than you. Mind I expect you would still find it cold, even though we thought it quite warm in the sun.

I wish I could get outside and work, but our weather doesn't permit that yet.
Glad you only made 2 mistakes. I would have made more.

I wish we could have been out doing work in the yard - but the rain came in over night and it has been a downpour all day long.

I'm glad to see that you've got some sun to finally enjoy though judging from the clothes, it's obviously still a bit chilly.

Pamela if you give board to your workers it could be arranged!;)

wendy embee does feel colder than moi. I read in th epaper that lots of people headed for the coast yesterday and I think today is even warmer. By Thurs apparently the cold weather will return.

LOL! Embee sounds like someone I know. I bow down to your patience, I seem to have lost mine somewhere down the line. If I am in a bad mood I yell right back and walk off to leave him to it. If Im in a good mood I stick out my tongue and blow a rasberry at him! Im so mature like that! Yes I am!

If one must spend a day, any day, doing chores, it looks like a great day to be doing them.

Chris it looks like a nice garden to sit in on a sunny day. Living in a high rise I do miss having a garden. Many days we take a picnic lunch across the road to the park so we do feel as if we are in the garden, but without the work.
