I love this.
I picked it up off Facebook yesterday, it's just so true ... and it's exactly how I try to live my life. Living in the present, the now, is the only way to live, in my opinion anyway .... otherwise you are dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. Concentrate on the here and now and you will get the most you possibly can out of life.
We only get the one after all .... and as far as I know it's not a dress rehearsal, if it has been I've been wrongly dressed for years ;-)
Anyway back to more in the 'now' things.
This is the state of play first thing this morning.
Thirteen (yes 13 again), more stacks of blocks were delivered at 7.30 this morning, then our trusty duo of of builders arrived to start covering the back of the wall with heavy duty polythene, this will protect it from the damp of the hillside.
Tucked away in the bottom under this layer of gravel is a perforated pipe, you can see it in the first pictre and then see it with some gravel on in this one. This is to drain any water away that runs off the hillside and take it to the huge soakaway drains that we installed next to the polytunnel.
Rainwater that lands on the garage and workshop roofs will drain into a large water storage tank ready to water the polytunnel crops and the things in the veggie patch when we have a dry spell.
Our happy builders, and yes the dogs LOVE them. They have only assumed this 'posing' posture the once ......
... but they do this one three times a day ;-)
Ginger spotted me on the hillside taking the photos and squeezed under the fence to join me. I hadn't even spotted him in the trees.
And remember .....
... because it will you know :-)
Oh and finally, a shout out for one of my long time Blogging Buddies who has a lovely new blog that I think will interest lots of you. Sara over at Frugal in Lincolnshire is writing all about family life and lots of the brilliant day to day frugal things that she does with her lovely family. I love what she did with the Sylvanian houses in her little girls room. Pop over and pay her a visit and say Sue sent me.
