    As little as possible it looks freezing out there today, well for May anyway:(
  • Not working today and I'm planning to put the tent in the garden for the wee chap to play in and possibly sleep over in it tonight...getting him used to it for some camping trips this summer (hopefully). Wed - Fri I'll be doing the maintenance rounds and keeping an eye on the weather as there's a light scarify to do at some point. 

    A couple of client lawns are still recovering from a scarify in late March but now that things are kicking off hopefully they'll be looking much better next visit.

    Taking it easy today, working on a little maintenance this morning then taking the rest of the day off to spend with the kiddies, don't want to over do it, it's only Monday ;-)

    I'm giving myself Mondays off now, but I just trimmed my hedges. Now I think I might have a nap while the kids are at school :)

    • I am surprised how little work is done on a Monday.

        To be fair the ones working will be too busy to post about it ;)

        As little as possible actually means 6-6 hours on the mower!

        As long as there is money in the bank and all the bills are paid I figure there is more to life than working, this year is all about family time, work will always be there... :-)
