Wed. morning here while you all sleep. Been a while but .......
An angel knocked on my door last Monday, well I was actually near the letterbox when they walked past. A young couple and son drumming up business with flyers for their just bought business on garden, cleaning rubbish type work. Local who have just moved back and bought the mums house, in the next street.
Hired him on the spot. Turned up Tues.afternoon after another job and did a couple of hours on a very difficult weeding, on a bank, cleared a path, cleaned it all up, in 2 hrs. amazing. We are talking waist high stuff.
I have been trying all year to get help, and they didnt turn up!!!!
He is even going to sort the pond out for me, something I can't do.It was our swimming pool I converted and the plants are so tall now and overcrowded.
My gardner, love the sound of that, is even going to make a path and steps, up the bank to the top which is my back vege garden, so I dont have to walk all the way around. DH didn't even flinch at me hiring, he is a " I will do it when I get time sort of male".
Not taking any more of that crap since he found 20hrs. week for the community garden.
Lawrence my garden angel, and Sophie his partner love my vege garden and want to be able to do it also. So have already sent him off with a youtube guide, the best ever, for setting up his and they can learn all they want from me.I also have a couple of books by the same you tuber who died at least 15 years ago.
Lawrence will be popping in again for another couple of hrs. today, in fact most days after his big landscape job in town. I am in no hurry and rather he did that, with big jobs.
DH taught him in year 7 but Lawrence didnt know our children as between the 4th and 5th.
The relief of all this is amazing.Ordered a new Happy Planner a week ago and waiting with anticipation, this has really set me going now, not having the weight of that last piece of the puzzle being dealt with. Oh to be young again and have that energy.
