    Keeping busy

    OK, what are you all doing to keep yourselves busy during this isolation thing?

    For me, I have started getting the greenhouse ready over the last few days as well as managed to burn the remains of the old shed which took 5 days using one of those incinerator dustbins. And managed to planta few pots of seeds ready for the veg patch and some flowers for the garden I still have some more to do yet.

    I also managed to get a raspberry bed weeded today as well as start a bowl may take a couple of days to complete it as it is not just a case of turning it pictures when completed if it does not end up in the bin. And I have enough turning blanks to last at least 6 months to that is me sorted

    You have been gainfully occupied,

    Are you going to run out of blanks before your garden is ready?

    I’ve been tidying the workshop and improving storage etc. It’s never been so tidy and I’m not finished yet! Also cooking quite a bit including baking our own bread.

    Simple answer is No but the garden needs doing as well as the veg patch which is a normal job for this time of year

    Mowed the grass at the weekend. First time this year because it's been so bloody wet. Consequently it was very long and took ages. Normally I'd be begrudging the extra time it took, but hey, what else was I going to do?

    Been in the second wood store today to finish the tidying up and as an exercise thought I would have a count up to see if I did actually have enough to last the isolation, bowl blanks I lost count at 145, not even looked how many in the re built store. Spindle blanks I have not even bothered with yet as spent some time on the piece I am working on as well as dug some of the veg patch. So not much done today

    Make a pen or two if you have enough in stock

    The continuing effort to sort my workshop progresses slowly. I know where my lathe is at any rate. I might be able to lay my hands on a pen kit if I look hard enough, but I think I may need to retrain, it's been so long. I think I will be seriously de-skilled by now.

    Cutting wood, cutting wood, and cutting wood!
    Sorting stuff for both the turning and burning sheds.

    I have a single garage that's stuufed to the gunnels with...well all kind of goodies / stuff so spent the first 2 days of this week pulling everything out, sorting a bit, throwing a little away ( the hardest part ) and putting it all back. A long, long way to go yet.

    Today spent cutting the grass which took a hell of a long time and some tidying outside - I'm knackered!
