Eggshells and Miracle-Gro

The sun shone this weekend, I got sunburnt and realised it was time to dig out the fake tan to disguise the strap marks and the fish-white legs.

On Friday the 13th, my abortive IVF cycle had stuttered to a final halt as my period arrived. I viewed this event as dispassionately as the rabbits munching their way through the frilly greenness of my herbaceous borders. Who cares?

I have realised all I really want to do is lie in the hammock and watch Mr P work in the garden. He has pressure-washed the terrace and the greenhouse this weekend and I just watched him, silent as the grave.

It is almost time for my holidays and I am really in need of them. My mojo seems to have deserted me. All I want is more sunshine on my face and a different view in the morning.

And you completely deserve it. I'm so glad you're taking the break that you need.

I think watching men work, especially our beloveds, is one of the best thing for peace of mind on this planet. I've told my husband I could watch him work around the house all day plenty of times - especially if he wears his tool belt...

I'm glad you have some time off coming up, I hope you're going somewhere beautiful and you can be entirely peaceful.

I'm glad you are taking a holiday. Spoil yourself and lie in the sunshine.

I agree with InSpring. There is something lovely and comforting about watching a man you love work on the space you share together.

I hope your holiday is filled with sunny skys and serenity.

so a Brit girl with fish-white legs is missing her mojo? best get yourself on holiday right away! Watching Mr P in the garden sounds quite cute ... I wish I had a handy-dandy husband.

I just got a new hammock myself this weekend. I also spent some time watching my man work (although he doesn't work in the garden). It was lovely.

Have a most fantabulous holiday.
