Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades.

Oh no. I take care of a friend's house that she lets out during the summer (she lives in That London) & there's about half a dozen vines in the front garden.
An old fella used to take care of them but can't anymore on account of him knacking his leg so I need to get them ready for the coming season. Have to hold off for the moment though as it's going to get down below freezing early next week & if I cut them back to the buds the frost will just kill them.
Cheers.

Today.. lol no more than two weeks i've been waiting for assessment / integrity test to come through, the third and final stage in getting a job.

first two interviews, on messenger video were done quite quickly and within a reasonable time frame of each other, went very well as far as online interviewing can go but seriously, how long does it take to send it through via email.

would be awesome to get the job as it's almost a year ago i left KLM and am ready to jump into a career again.
here we go again....

Gardening.
The front garden at the house I look after is effectively a pile of rubble left over from the build of the second floor a few years ago masquerading as a rockery.
Today I transformed it from this

To this

Planted lavender, pyracantha, 3 different varieties of malva, tulips, & some marigold seeds.
:D
