In my usual frugal manner I have sourced a supply of free mulch. There is only one condition; you have to accept whatever they dump on your front lawn which in our case was the entire contents of the mulching truck! This smoking heap stood higher than me (yes, I will get to the Dwarf bit in a minute) and even with me diligently shovelling away for the week, I have hardly made a dent in the pile!
I am a bit worried in case I can't shift it all before the hot weather rolls around. Mulch piles can spontaneously combust can't they?
I also took possession of my box of berries (all fifteen of them!), strawberries, loganberries, silvanberries, youngberries, blueberries, elderberries and raspberries. This has been an interesting exercise as I have realised that I have probably run out of planting room in my beds/surrounds and it is going to have to be pots from now on! Ohhh, just had a thought; there is a wattle taking up space in the 'forest' :)
Yes, I'm getting to the dwaft bit now. I had my check up at the hospital on Wednesday and it appears that I have been shrinking. I have lost two cm's in a year :( Now when you are only 163 cm's tall, every cm counts! So my eco footprint isn't the only thing that is shrinking!
Hormonal hair growth, shrinking stature, shovel in hand and Graves disease (makes you very firey), just sew me a hat and call me Grumpy!
