Our grass is not happy, all brown and dead looking. It looks like it has not been watered in months, which is sooo not the case. I got the electric rake out today and gave it a wizz over; it seemed to have helped a little. We also have a 'man who can' coming to sort it out, I just hope he comes soon.
I did the housework this morning and then pottered in the garden while doing washing at the same time, well the machine did the washing really. I got four loads of washing done and all out on the line and dry, much better than having it hung all over the house. My list of garden jobs to do is getting smaller but the ones that are left are ones I do not want to do, I guess that is why I have been leaving them. Oh well, I will have to get on with them some time.
Today I also sorted out a hotel for a wedding we are going to later in the year; it is my half-sister's wedding. I do not see much of her, maybe just a few times over the last 10 years. She has her life and we have ours and she is down south. She is much younger than us as my father had another family after he split up with my mum, so even when she was young we did not see much of her. Anyway, we have been invited to her wedding and needed a hotel as it is down South.
I think my brothers are going, so there will be some people we know. Her mother, my step-mother will be there but I never got on with her and we have not seen her since my father passed away. I hope it is traditional seating so we do not have to sit with her, I think that would be hard work, probably for her as well as us!
My half-sister has sent a note with the invite saying they do not want presents; they already have a house so guess they do not need the 'normal' wedding gift type thing. However, they have said they want money towards their honeymoon. I am not keen on the giving money thing and was thinking of trying to get a nice photo of the day and giving them that afterwards, which I hope will be okay.
Right off to bed for a bit of OU reading.
