Three a.m., a waning moon, and the excitement of the day has caught up with me. A lovely article in Remodelista! We were caught napping rather, so this morning found me taking photos in a hurry while Stefan updated the Rough Linen website – we had done the Summer Covers but not the Simple Pillowslips to go with them.
I spent some time doing brutal gardening to relieve my tenterhooks. Both the old aloe and the may are now history, and my New Dawn has room to breathe and a rich mulch of well-rotted manure, sulphate of potash and compost. The slope looks like a victim of slash and burn, and so do I. There is no point in envying Kelley her blessed green acre, we all work with what we have. I felt I had the most beautiful garden in London and I’m glad I did, but we weren’t on the water then!
Fish and chips to celebrate at our favorite un-smart waterfront, always great fish and colorful clientele. Smart would have been uphill, I’m working this weekend.
