Snug as a Bug in a Rug

The landlords spent this morning topping up the insulation in our loft which is exciting – at this rate, we may even get the roof fixed and the window in our bedroom replaced which has been jammed slightly open since before the worst of the snow. Apparently the new window will actually be double glazed when it arrives, which has left me looking thoughtfully at all the other windows. It would, of course, be terrible if any more of them were to suffer accidental damage at the hands of a careless tenant…

Naturally all this has happened on the warmest day of the year to date – could it be that spring has actually sprung? Moderate clout casting (I know, reckless or what) has even taken place: I am down to just the one jumper and have put the lobster gloves away although not very far. I’m still firmly sewn into my merino baselayers though. There’s reckless and there’s downright foolhardy and if last summer was anything to go by I’ll still be wearing my thermals in July…

    We recently had a week of sunshine, so Beautiful Wife did what all Japanese do when summer comes, and moved all the winter clothes into the loft with due ceremony.
    The day after, the temperature dropped and it rained again.

    I’m imagining an actual ceremony now, with lots of bowing…

    ha ha ! Happy May Day to you. We too still have the wood burner on and i wore a woolly hat to walk the dogs this morning and kept it firmly on while I attacked the weeding. Still quite nippy really, but warm enough to get the potatoes in, metinks. Ah, that reminds me..

    yeah the soil is starting to warm up. Potatoes, peas, beans, parsnips & today leeks are in…

    hmmm Our “spring” has been cooler than normal 50’s vs 70’s (fareheit y’all) couple of days at normal, but heading back down again. Tomatoes and peppers transplanted, early corn and cantalope going in this weekend…maybe.
