Had a call today - it seems that my dad's birds have been moved by one of my brothers, so tomorrow will be a much nicer day clearing stuff from the old garden instead. Collecting up old garden ornaments, bird baths, digging up some plants that are to be moved to the new garden, etc. In an odd way, I am rather looking forward to it. I am not really a gardener but I find the thought of transplanting things rather exciting - will they live or die?
The thing that I find most encouraging is that we should finally finish tomorrow, leaving the weekend clear which is great because it is my wife's birthday on Saturday and Mother's Day on Sunday. A whole weekend of official spoiling and pampering, which will be great if we can pull it off. Maybe we will just disappear so no-one can find us, he, he. Well we will be disappearing for at least part of Saturday as I intend to take my wife to a really great art shop that I have found so we can stock up on stuff for her paintings. We will all have to go for a nice meal somewhere too, but we tend to play that off the cuff as planned restaurant visits almost always go horribly wrong for us.
Changing the subject completely, I have been thinking about doing some work on my V bass guitar - a new pick up or 2 to boost the sound, a new paint job, something like that. Maybe just having "Rock Chef" written across it in silver? Something more exciting? Suggestions welcome!
