The weather's been lovely Chester way and I've spent a lot of time outside. My little list of jobs completed includes:
Bonfire - we had a hedge removed back in October which measured 8' high x 7' wide x 40m long. It was all piled up and after the dry spell I decide it was time to get rid. 5L of diesel and off it went. There were a few small trees in the ehde that I wanted to get the wood out of for logs so it was chainsaw time. Took most of yesterday morning to tend the fire but it's now just a pile of smouldering ashes.
Cut the lawn - in addition to a lawn by the house we are lucky enough to have some paddocks a couple of which we use as extended lawns. To deal with the grass cutting I have a tractor and 8' finishing mower which I dusted off to get the job done. Looks fab now.
Cleaned out the hen house
Changed the gearbox oil in the trials bike
Rode trials bike around the fields in vain attempt to wear dog out
Strimming - put the three bladed brush cutter on the strimmer and took out some brambles around the boundary
Repaired wendy house - my girls have a wendy house in the garden with has a small 'veranda' which had rotten somewhat so I removed it and made some supports for the overhanging roof.
Changed the halyard lock in the mast of of my boat
Pulled the BBQ out of winter storage, cleaned it and had cajun chicken wraps for lunch
Repainted a window frame where the bloody crows have been pecking the sealand out from around the glass
That's about it. I love these light nights and feel guilty if I go inside before 6:30!
So how about you lot - get much done?
