I’m not much one for gardening. Until recently I avoided it at all costs, not enjoying dirt, flying insects and too much sun. On the rare occasions I ventured out there, you’d see me run around flailing my arms at even the most polite enquiry from a bee. But things change. I have the cutest little garden now and I really want it to be nice, so I’m leaning towards learning more about it.
I went with Mum to the garden centre yesterday, expecting to accompany her round and drive her home. But when I got there, there were such gorgeous plants I had to buy some, she bought a few more than me and then we went to have lunch in their nice little cafe. I ordered a ham salad roll and a scone with butter, but when they were actually in front of me, they were huge. I ate the roll and had the scone wrapped up to take home. This makes me sound a fragile little thing who won’t eat and I can definitely state that isn’t the case. I can eat, but hell, that thing was enormous. All these little old ladies who just have ‘one salad roll’ and it keeps them going the whole day are eating there, you mark my words. The tea was lush too.
When I got back to Mum’s house, I made my weekly call to the local dentist to see if anyone had died (I have been waiting to get onto their list for 18 months and travelling several hours each way in the meantime to see my old dentist). Although nobody had died – which is good of course, if a little disappointing – the receptionist took pity on me and registered me anyway. Yay!
I got home, sorted the plants out and did a few bits around the house and then Mum rang me and suggested she come round and we scrap any sensible ideas of making a dinner that included vegetables and grown-up stuff and instead order fish and chips and pretend we were on holiday.
So we did. The cat loved the fish too.
It was a lovely day, I can’t remember having such a lovely day for ages and I’m putting it down to the excellent company (my Mum is very funny) but also to this fledgling interest in gardening. I’m quite excited and I’m full of good intentions about getting out there and titivating my borders today.
Not a euphemism.
Have you started any new hobbies lately? Do you do anything you shouldn’t enjoy but kind of do? (No Bruce, I don’t mean your annual medical check).
Do you love your garden? Is it a neat window box or two? Is it a wilderness?
