Friday 1st May

Silly night, I went to bed at a reasonable time, decided to play Soda Crush and woke up with my finger still on the screen, about an hour later.  Glasses off, Kindle on the bedside table, lights out and no more disturbances until seven this morning.  Sun was up, mist was rising in the valley and it was a beautiful day even though the weather man had forecasted rain for today.  In fact it's been very much like yesterday, the clouds came over around two this afternoon, thunder rumbling around but we only had a few spots of rain...nothing to write home about.

I'm getting ahead of myself...I went out on to the balcony to watch the shepherd's wife walk the sheep over to the high field and she gave me a wave. I heard her husband yelling encouragingly to hurry them up, she probably had lots still to do at the farm.  I made myself a cheese and bacon omelette since the bread was still in the freezer, washed up the dishes from last night and left everything tidy, made my bed and dressed for the garden.  Today's task should I choose to accept it  and there was nobody else to ask was to see how much of the grass I could do and continue clearing the weeds from the side garden.  Because the grass was wet it would have to wait and I started on the garden until I'd had enough.  I can see more soil and have now found the technique to clearing it more easily.  I came in at twelve for water and five minutes rest and actually went out again at one thirty. ...it turned out to be more than the five minutes.  

I started on the main grass and found that I was not following the normal routine but it added spice to what is a boring job.  The first wave was down to the berberis  and I noticed that the Fitbit was running out of juice so i went in to put it on charge before it stopped registering my mammoth achievement and put the waterproof one on.  More water and back to it and managed to do the rest of the main grass but it was hard going.  Because the grass was wet it wasn't settling in the grass catcher but was clogging up the exit and I had to empty it more.  I'd finished it by four so I put the machine away and sat on the bench with some cheese biscuits and the water bottle.  I went in the house and tried to update the Fitbit so that both totals were added together and it was a slow process.  I had to switch the tablet off, it was flashing the total from the first one and then displaying the lower reading from the waterproof one and eventually I managed it.  I thought I'd do a bit more so went back to weeding and found that the broad bean that had stayed out all winter on it's own and not under the protection has broad bean pods on it so I cleared the debris from round it.  I've yet to check out the ones that spent winter under the polythene.

Not too bothered about supper....so far...the mood might take me later.  I'll finish the grass tomorrow, weather permitting otherwise I'm going to get into the same position as before, some long and some short.....and lots more weeding to do.  LN....Roll on summer...LN

Saturday 2nd May

Good night's sleep according to my Fitbit although I felt that I was a little restless...who am I to judge!!  Heck of a thunderstorm last night and it rained and that seems to be the order of the day now.  We get a few weeks where the mornings are good, the clouds come over around lunchtime, the thunder rattles around a little and then we might have rain.  

Breakfast was another bacon and cheese omelette...the bread is still in the freezer, I didn't take it out because I intended going in to Djebel for a few things but I never made it. I have run out  sweet things to eat and it's just as well.  I dug out the bathroom scales from under the hand basin until and somehow they'd found their way to the back.  I stood on them and they didn't register anything so the hunt was on for a new battery and I found one...surprise, surprise...replaced it and I've worked out how much I need take off and to be honest...I was surprised that I hadn't put more on over the winter.  I opened a few windows upstairs and heard a strimmer so went into the spare bedroom and noticed that my painter was strimmer my Avatar's garden.  She's still in Germany and destined to return on the tenth of May...and it's all flight dependent.  He stopped and I though that he'd run out of petrol so I went to the gate and shouted over to him as he was leaving the garden.  I then heard him strike up again in Haciber's garden so I left him to it.  He appeared in the garden after ten minutes or so and he said that he was OK for fuel but could he leave his machine in the workshop until tomorrow...he had other jobs to do in the village and I think he wasn't really interested in what he was about.  I locked the workshop...better safe than sorry.

So out to the garden, more weeding and I continued with the vegetable garden and exposed the tulips from underneath the weeds.  I dug up a few of the parsley root and some of them are a decent size...and I thought I was growing parsnips and they'd wrongly labeled the packet...wrong....Perhaps they'll be useful for my neighbour with cows...they might like them.  I remembered that I'd done a load of washing and realised it would dry quicker out of the machine so hung it out.  As I turned round I notice the black cat looking towards the base of the terrace wall and was obviously looking at something.  It kept perfectly still and then suddenly shot under the lavender and came out with something ...I know now what ...headed over the wall and took to the bushes to devour whatever it was.  It's a hunter.  

I took five minutes on the terrace, looked at the remainder of the grass and made the decision to tackle it...and I did.  Absolutely shattered but that's another thing off the list and it does look good.  So back to the weeding....I've made a dent in it and it will probably take me another couple of days.  By the time that I've cleared it I should have plants ready to go in, my seeds are doing well.

I came in and synced my Fitbit.  I've done over twenty thousand steps today and that's the first time but the trouble is, once you set a new record...it's there to be beaten.  Supper is in the oven and I settled for local tinned corned beef, baked beans with a topping of sliced potatoes...it goes down well with brown sauce.  LN....I need to go to the kitchen.....LN

Sunday 3rd May

Straight through last night until just before eight and I was amazed.  I made coffee and went back to bed with Soda Crush and after about ten minutes remembered that I still had my painter's strimmer in the wood store so got a wiggle on and got dressed so that I didn't greet him in my PJ's.  I unlocked everything at nine and went out to check on the pot plants and noticed that he was waiting by the gate for me to open up the drawbridge.  He wanted his machine so I unlocked the wood store and he went in and brought it out.  He was off to Avatar's house to cut the side garden and I reminded him that there were a few shrubs nestling in the grass.

I came in and made toast and slathered jam on it...so much for the diet and then went outside to work it off.  I'd set my target on the frog garden little beds and they're still waiting. My attention was drawn yet again to the vegetable patch and I slaved on it like a good'un, the beds are all clear, the parsley root is over the wall and I'm hoping that the cows will take to it.  It's made me realise that the crop has seriously broken up the bed to a greater depth and I only wish that they were parsnips not parsley root.  I thought that seed vendor had made a mistake on the label...and they did look like parsnips so it was an easy mistake to make on my part.  My painter came back and again asked me if I was going into Djebel and I told him that I'd had a message that it was going to be possible to get into main towns without documentation so I was giving Djebel a miss.  He left the machine in the workshop while he went off somewhere else and when he came back to collect his machine I went back with him to point out where the shrubs were...too late...they were no longer and issue.  He didn't last long, said that his shoulder was aching so the rest is yet to be done and off he went.

I came in for a short time and noticed that my lovely daughter had phoned so I called her back and we chatted for around forty minutes about nothing in particular as you do with daughters.  They were supposed to be going to Florida in June but that's now cancelled and are deciding whether to go for a voucher on the flight or the refund.  Did they want a fight or not????  I went out again and by this time the clouds had rolled over and it looked like rain.  I carried on though and separated out the broad beans from the weeds and knocked up a couple of supports and nailed a blank between them, the tulips that I've dug up are planted in a bucket and the poppies are in the new bed at the base of the little house terrace.  I came in, it was now dropping serious ran so I put the tools away, locked up the work shops, cleaned my wellies under the water container and that was me done for the day.  

I came in and was amazed to see that it was half past five...where had the day gone.  I lit a fire, made corned beef sandwiches for supper, have eaten the said sandwiches and am catching the end of Tenable.  It looks like the rain has set in for the night and at least it's good for the garden but to date there are no seeds planted...that's tomorrows job...beetroot and parsnips...I repeat...parsnips.  LN....Hot bath tonight I think....LN

Monday 4th May

Rain, rain, go away...come again another day....but I did have a day off.  I woke up at five thirty, coffee, back to bed, a few games, emails and wasted time on FB...but not much else to do.  I moved last night's log to the back of the burner so that I would have it for tonight...and I did.  There were two lingering and they formed the basis to make it a quick job.  I was fascinated, a few of the sheep had blue markings on them but more than normal.  They either been well tupped or or the paint dispenser, took a good shaking and went everywhere and it appears that I was shaking and at full stretch when I took the photo....apologies.

The garden looks good and I'm really pleased with the effort on the vegetable garden and the weeds and parsley root that I slung over the wall were really appreciated by the livestock.  The shepherd had to move them along but they were back towards the middle of the morning.  They must have heard of the properties of parsley root and I was sent the details in an email.  I'll put a single row in this year, thin them out and use them in the same season, not over winter them.   Poached egg for breakfast, followed by toast and jam and then I started watching the morning television which I soon got bored with.  I think they all work to the same negative format with such morose questions and no Piers this morning..and no news about him.  

I settled on the rocking chair in the bedroom and put a plastic bowl upside under my feet to maintain the balance.  I played Sudoku and despite the fat that it was only eleven thirty I fell asleep, it must have been something to do with the extreme day yesterday.  I was half asleep and half awake and it was two thirty when I came round. I went downstairs and noticed that there was a bunch of spring onions on my outside table and thought that they had come from my neighbour with the next door garden and was surprised when Haciber appeared at the window so I went to the door.  They were a gift from her.  I asked her about my Avatar and if she was still coming this week but apparently there are no planes so she is coming in June and by then the two weeks self isolation might be over.

I lit the fire at four, it's nice and cosy, it started to dry up but then started to rain again.  I did one circuit of the garden and checked on the poppies that I'd rescued and planted int he bed under the little house terrace and at least they're standing.  I need to something with corned beef tonight since I opened the can yesterday...decisions, decisions.  LN....A very easy day.....LN

More pickies

I caught the sheep coming home and the poor shepherdess ended up carrying both the little ones for a time, one then the other and the mother was watching everything that was going on.  She seemed to have red and blue on her fleece maybe to distinguish her from the rest of the flock.  And again at full stretch in the rain...LN

Tuesday 5th May

Somehow I was still awake at one this morning and I've felt shattered all day.  I woke up at six, the sun was about to make an entrance but it was very cloudy and misty and it took ages for it to emerge.  I made a  coffee but decided not to drink it.  I've either eaten something that's not agreed with me or I've picked up an allergy to coffee....it's made me feel uncomfortable, burping frequently so I left breakfast alone and settled for plain yogurt.  That saw me through until this afternoon.

My get up and go has gone for today....I intended planting up the beetroot, parsnips and parsley root but it slipped off the radar.  I washed and dressed, sat in the stairwell with the Sudoku book and felt extraordinarily sleepy so I let the feeling overtake me, I moved to the sofa and didn't wake up until one thirty.  I just felt that I needed to catch up...the excess stepping over the weekend had also taken it out of me so I didn't want to push myself at all today and I didn't.

I switched on the computer on the landing and in my emails I'd had suggestions about family member that I'd been trying to trace.  I still can't get beyond my 1797 'greats' grandfather so decided to ask the provider for help.  I got the normal response advising me 'have you tried this' etc., and believe me I've tried everything and just can't tie down his parents at all and of course, I need that to go backwards.  

Nothing for supper tonight...I'm really giving me tummy a rest but the other thing I've don is to put up a weight chart in the bathroom so that I can start keeping track of the weight loss / weight if the self imposed diet doesn't work.  Regarding our lock-down.....I believe the advice is to be updated tomorrow.  I don't think it will made a difference to me though...I've got into the habit of 'staying home'...unlike most Bulgarians.  We'll 'wait for the next wave to follow.  LN....Back to the ancestry search....LN

Wednesday 6th May

Seven start and not a bad morning.  Sun was up, clouds were high and it looked like we were in for a good day.  I'm still not on top form so was looking for another gentle day and I found it.  The news is that there is no need to take documentation with you to get into Kardjali so I might be doing in it later in the week...I just reckoned that the world and all its friends might be heading in and doing massive shops for store cupboards and freezers....mine can wait.

I didn't bother with coffee, I went out on to the terrace and plucked a lemon from my tree and made what used to be my favourite drink.  Lemon juice, hot water, honey and salt and took it back to bed with me.  I'm going to leave off the coffee and see if that changes things.  I toasted a couple of slices of bread and skimmed it with butter and sat on the bench on the terrace eating it.  The birds were very vocal this morning...it was so quiet and it's amazing how many different songs there are.  I was out there sitting in the sun and I decided to get my winter coat from my legs and repaint my toe nails.  I changed from the jeans that I'd put on originally and put a pair of loose cotton ones so that I could roll them up, got a bowl of hot water with shower gel in it and my razor and did the deed.  I didn't stop there, I gave myself a foot pamper and painted my nails...summer is a 'cummin'.    I even took my jumper off and enjoyed the sun and kept my trousers rolled up for my first summer sun coating.  Unfortunately the clouds started to come over, I brought in the tools of the trade and settled on the sofa with the Kindle.  Sleep overcame me and for the next two hours I was off with the fairies.  I read for the rest of the afternoon and at four lit the fire.  It wasn't cold but we are in for a very wet, drab evening and I've still got wood so I might as well enjoy it and it's chucking it down now.

Supper is still in the freezer so not sure if I actually want anything tonight....I'll leave it until later,  I suppose if the weather is like this tomorrow I might head into Kardjali...Bulgarians don't like rain so might all be staying home.  LN....Weather dependent yet again....LN

Thursday 7th May

Good night's sleep and woke up at six thirty.  It was a misty old morning and it seemed to take ages for the mist to burn off and when it did, it was a beautiful day but that wind was cold.  I took a pint of lemon tea to bed with me and started playing Soda Crush and for some reason I was on form or the program was feeling sorry for me.  I managed to knock off eight games and most of those at the first attempt but now I have a really difficult on on the go and that should take me a few days at a guess.

Sliced sausage and an egg for breakfast and that's my diet up the shoot already.  I followed it with another bucket of tea and it seems to have done the trick.  The coffee is supposed to be Gold Blend but I'm not sure if it's been made under licence and the composition is different.  I've been drinking it for years without any problem or maybe it's just me.  I tidied the kitchen, filled up the log basket and the starter wood bucket form the wood store and settled on the sofa with the Kindle and caught up on emails and FB.  I walked the garden when I got into the action mode but it didn't last long and I seem to have meandered through the day.  I toyed with Djebel or Kardjali and did neither but at four I decided that I should tackle the little frog garden and get rid of the weeds and the moved on to the rose bed and the stone beds round the trees on the low wall.  I was a bit surprised, Guljan's father appeared on the terrace yelling my name and I thought at first it was my painter.  He asked me where I'd been since he hasn't seen me out and about and I said that the virus had kept me home.  I think they think that Bulgaria doesn't have a problem and only have the impression that the problem is in England.  The government are talking about opening up tourism and guest houses and will put measures in place to open hotels so that the summer season can commence.  I hope it doesn't come back to bite them in the bum.

I came in at six thirty, the sun is still out but that wind almost tempted me to light the fire but a snuggle down in bed and an early night might be on the cards.  I missed the full moon rising a couple of nights ago and last night that wasn't a snowball in hell's chance since the rain set in and it absolutely threw it down but last night I did have a fire.  I'm going to try and catch it tonight.  LN....Time for PJ's and a sweatshirt.....LN

Friday 8th May

Little bit of a silly night last night...woke up at three and not an ounce of sleep in me so played silly games until four and then managed to get off again and went through until eight.   Having seen a photo of the full moon on a friend's FB page I just happened to catch a glimpse of it coming up last night so I'll bore you with the pickies,  I was going to put it on FB but it was too much like hard work last night and I've just been too busy today.  I washed and dressed since I was expecting guests this morning and obviously safe distancing on the terrace,  I cooked bacon and made and omelette and cleared up the kitchen and sat in the sun in the stairwell doing Sudoku and listening to the morning television and obviously shouting at it  when I stupid question came up and was listening to Boris' father when my guests arrived bearing gifts.  Sweet peas freshly picked form their garden and some butternut squash plants ready for planting out.

We sat on the terrace with coffees and I had tea and put the world to rights.  We came round to discussing flower seeds and I went inside and came out with my flower seed pot and had the mickey taken out of me because of my descriptions of the contents written on the envelopes.  'Pedrea's white things' doesn't give much of an idea as to what the flower looks like but I know what they are and I would recommend them for anyone's garden.  We managed to find several that they wanted and they went away happy bunnies.  They left around twelve thirty and I made the decision to go into Kardjali and get my shopping and driving in in the little one was really weird.  The last time I'd been out in the Nipper I'd had the warning that the gas was finished so I switched over to petrol and then I'd not used it until this morning.  I stopped off at the garage shop and dropped off a couple of shrubs that I brought on and carried on to Kardjali and as I hit the main road the gas warning sound came on again and so I switched over to petrol.  I thought I was running on petrol anyway so I somehow must have done a double click on it last time and it must keep 'cooking on gas' for quite some time,  Anyway into the gas station in Kardjali, filled up and now I know that I'm running on gas, the green light is on.  

On to Kaufland with my list and I'd crossed off four items and had a pretty full trolley and it was eight leva at the checkout.  Four essential items, eighty leva and on to Lidl, the rest of the list knocked off apart from the items that I wanted from Djebel and that was another eight eight leva but at list my list was complete.  Back to Djebel for the remainder and I was pleasantly surprised with a nineteen leva bill and my first spend up for about five weeks.  Parked up under the tree so that I can mow the yard tomorrow...too late to do it after I'd unpacked and put away the shopping.  The fresh chicken legs and wings have been put in the freezer and supper was a rib of flavoured pork so I've nibbled my way through a whole one.

Apparently we're in for a good dry spell so it's gardening tomorrow but I've got to take it carefully.  I appear to have knackered my elbow so I called in for the 'Deep Heat that I'd left at the garage when he had trouble with his neck.  I've rubbed it well into the joint and put a support on it and wrapped it in an elastic bandage.  It really hurts when I lift up a fairly full kettle so I better stop doing that then,  LN...Want to watch Captain Tom's story tonight...what a man....LN

Saturday 9th May

A day of two halves.  Fairly leisurely morning, normal hot tea to bed, Soda Crush and I was breakfasting on bacon and egg at eight. I moved the car outside the wall with the intention of using the electric mower to cut the grass.  I suddenly noticed that there was a bag of hay near to the gate and I couldn't understand it for a minute but then the penny dropped, it was the one that I'd filled up the water meter box with so that it didn't freeze up over the winter.  I'm assuming that the water board had been round and read it for the first time this year so I either have a rebate or a thumping big bill.  I shall know when it gets taken out of my bank account.  I'd slept last night with a bandaged elbow after I'd rubbed in some Deep Heat so I unpacked it and repacked it with more cream.  The elastic bandage had not got much elasticity left in it so this mornings plan was to take money out of the cashpoint and go to the chemist and buy more bandage a tube of Reparil gel ...so recommended for sports injuries and weeding, although not a recognised sport is still considered dangerous and not only to weeds.

I headed into Djebel after I had spoken to my painter who was finishing off strimming Avatar's paddock.  He mentioned that he had knacked his wrists doing the strimming so I said that I would get him a support bandage and that he could do the equivalent value of the bandage in work...he doesn't like charity or debts.  I had ten minutes with my student's mum in the shop, went to the chemist and made my purchases and since they only had one bandage I went to the little one over the road and bought another two...a spare for me and one for my painter.  Back to the car and over to the little supermarket for a few items and then back home.  I left the car outside the gate, put the shopping away, settled on the sofa at twelve and woke up at two,lingered until two thirty and then decided the who day couldn't be wasted.

I managed to get the wheels adjusted so that the machine didn't keep stopping and starting, finished the yard and then move on to the grass between the wall and the front of the house.  It didn't stop there....I moved on to the grave garden to the side of the house and cleared underneath the bushes.  The little grass mower is standing p tot he job and so is my black cat.  There was another mole lying on the grass and this is definitely different than stated on the internet.  According to one site I visited the is supposed to be one mole per acre since they are quite territorial and solitary.  I've had three caught in and around my garden in the last month..nobody has informed the miles and cats.  The elbow stood up to the treatment well and I ended up weeding the under wall liberating some of the plants. especially from the climbing, clinging ones.  I came in at five thirty, tools away and chicken wings and a jacket potato straight into the oven.  Watched a little tv. had supper, the washing up can wait and I've put the boiler on for a bath.  The new cream will go on the elbow and I'll strap it up for the night and weather permitting...the rest of the grass will be done tomorrow.LN...Bath time....LN
