And so the summer long debate begins… do I go outside, enjoy sun and be plagued by sneezing and steaming eyes, or, in true hermit fashion, hide on the sofa and look out the window. Either way I can’t win.
Except today the world was on my side and I managed to mow the lawn, give it a rake and fertilise- as per Gardeners World instructions (what kind of 22 year old am I???!)- then take Harley down the forest for the first time with my OH! Alas a few sniffles followed, but overall my contact lenses and hayfever tablets actually did their job!
So bar feeling incredibly old as I bought my very first garden rake, today had actually been a great summers day!
