Busy, busy, busy ๐Ÿ™‚

The school holidays are coming to a close and they have gone so quickly.

I seem incapable of getting through my To Do list. Is this a common problem?

It’s not all my fault ๐Ÿ˜‰

Christmas Eve I was wiping down a bench and I managed to get a piece of metal stuck in my thumb – stuck deep inside like a medical implant. Lucky it missed the bone, but I spent the next week seeing doctors, getting x-rays and ultrasounds, and waiting long periods in waiting rooms!

The thumb got infected (of course) before the metal was extracted and after it was extracted – fun, fun, fun #NOT

Many antibiotics were consumed.

Anyhoo, it is all healed now and I am only left with an uneasy feeling that something sharp will be lurking somewhere in my vicinity at all times ๐Ÿ˜ž

Here are some photos just to keep the old blog chugging along:

Non free-ranging vegetables ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yes, the young Stafford was right – I needed to fence the vege patch (he’s a wise person that Staffo).

Deep down I knew I needed toย cage the vegetablesย but I so didn’t want too ๐Ÿ˜ฆ They have feelings too you know #lol
