Happy #Wensfriesday

It has been a while since I’ve posted on my Wensfriesday post, but I just had to share my happiness and mid-week special.

I haven’t had a chance to enjoy a sweetie break – we did that the other night whilst watching a Star Wars marathon!  Instead, my treat today was tackling a job I’ve been avoiding for good reason…the patio!  The pallets have done their time and it was time to replace or remove them.  Today was the day of reckoning. 

   Now I’m no wimp, but the size of spiders jumping out from cracks and crevices had me screaming and doing crazy dances in the garden. I was not the only one! The children screeched when one tried to run up my shoe! Eurgh! I’m still getting the shivers now.After moving over 36 slabs, 10 pallets and supporting bricks, the majority of the area has been cleared and a new set of steps laid out.  Tomorrow I will finish the hellish corner that’s left and lay out the rest of the slabs over the cleared area.   

 My treat at the end of a hard day’s work was a lovely cup of Jasmine tea.  I guess I will have to celebrate a proper Wensfriesday tomorrow.

Have you tackled any major jobs today that have been bugging you for a while?  What was your mid-week treat?

    EEEkkkk! I do not like spiders either, Eloise. The patio looks like it will be nice when you are done. Glad the pallets worked for you. ❤


  2. Nice progress! And oh, yes. My partner and I are moving across the ocean next year and she’s been sort of avoiding packing/cleaning, so this Tuesday, I got a huge chunk of it done. I’m still sore and tired, but I feel a little more piece of mind seeing one of our rooms empty except for boxes to ship.

  3. Job well done. I’m very impressed you are moving all this heavy stuff around. You’ve no doubt been eating all your spinach?
