Day 213: Lunch in the Shady Part of the Garden, and Recycling an Old Door

Wow, it’s been a hot day today and working in the conservatory was too much to bear. I opened the windows and closed the blinds before it heated up which helped a little bit. After having lunch with my daughter on the swing seat in the garden, I brought my laptop out for an hour. The seat is shaded by two large trees and I could feel a nice breeze.

The broken door

In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I’d left a door in the garden that needed to be thrown away. Today my husband took it apart to show me that it’s just cardboard inside. I hadn’t realised that our doors were so flimsy.

He took the bits of wood out that he wanted to keep and I put the rest of it with the recycling for next week. That’s one less item in the garage!

Talking about the garage, I’m really looking forward to getting more done in there over the weekend. When I popped in there today it actually felt quite cool so if it’s still as hot and muggy tomorrow, that might be a good place to be.

Friday treat

I ended the day with going out and getting us all good old fish and chips! It was so delicious.

I have a good feeling about this weekend.

Until tomorrow…

    Indeed a British Classic though I believe we pinched the idea from someone else.

  2. The heat has been unrelenting here and I have been working at keeping the house as cool as possible, Nice to relax in the shade even if you are working.
