My family holiday

We have not been on holiday for a while so it was great to get the time off from work and just go away for a week.

We booked the site well in advance, One week camping in Somerset, Perfect.

I wrote the usual lists just so that we don’t forget anything.

With everything packed we headed off to our holiday 🙂

Lovely drive to the site (160 miles), The weather was fantastic, everyone was in such a good mood……..Well that was until we realised that THE TENT WAS MISSING!!!!!

It was not funny at the time but when we watched the video footage afterwards we could not help but laugh, Why do we always check the same place over and over?

Well we finally managed to borrow a tent and put it up, Now for a fantastic week of fun.

After such a good week we got to the beach on the evening of the last day and I managed to catch the last glimpse of the sun going down.

Oops I did it again!!!!

Today was lovely and bright and so warm I could have worn shorts if I was not on the motorbike 🙂

Well I had the afternoon planned but I did not manage to do everything…Maybe tomorrow?

I started the afternoon weeding around the lavender with a hand fork which was easy enough.

Next was the small Rhubarb bed, There was quite a few deep-rooted weeds so I landed up using the garden fork to get them out, After damaging one of my Rhubarb plants I went back to using the hand fork again.

Next was the large Rhubarb bed, You would think I would have learned my lesson but no, not me, There was more deep-rooted weeds so again I used the garden fork and AGAIN I damaged one of my plants, I tried to use the hand fork for a while but gave up and grabbed the hoe, 10 minutes later and job done!

Why oh why did I not just use the hoe in the first place???
