Today my creating has mostly gone on in my head. I’ve pootled about, thinking about the things I’m going to do – when I’ve finished being my husbands cheer team…
My lovely husband has been building a strawberry ladder. He’s talked about it on and off for the last couple of years and finally, this year, in a fit of garden taming and planning he decided to make it.
I remember, when I was a little girl, my Dad always wanted an audience when he was doing something around the house – I imagine it was to prove that he’d done it :). My husband is similar.
Despite using a workmate (don’t those things hold wood for you?) I was his mate – holding the ends of the wood, watching him screw things together, making suggestions like ‘shouldn’t that bit be slanted?’ and holding it upright while he dug it in.
Anyway, the strawberry ladder is now in place and looks great. Can’t wait to eat the strawberries – though in our house you have to be up with the dawn chorus to get a look in once they start ripening!!
