Went part way up the narrow walk.

See to the greenhouses

Checked and watered the plants I potted up yesterday.
Took off some dead leaves and flowers.

Break for lunch

Raking up Beech nuts
13:00-15:00
Raked up the rest of the beech nuts from the banking behind the conservatory.

Servicing
15:00-15:40
Oiled and put away the cutting deck from the tractor. Oiling the underneath is an option which I like to do but cleaning it down before storage is not an option, you must do it and more especially if the deck is made of steel. Tess was a very good help using her fur as a paint brush!

Catching up on news and hanging around in the kitchen.

Made a cup of tea and sat in the sittingroom until dinner was ready.

So happy Tess could help you with her "paint brush! Your days are very diverse, always wanted employment where I didn't have to be in one place all day long and with multiple (outdoor) tasks! Wish I could have a mince pie! Laptops are excellent...I've enjoyed the 2 I've had!
