I'm home.
Absolutely mammoth journey. It was three days from when I left Aberdeen ( ok not really with time differences) but it still felt like it was.
Also even though the flights were all really good I didn't sleep on the way home, no idea why. Last night I went to bed at 8pm and woke up at 7am. It felt good!!

Lloyd picked me up from Auckland which was lovely and it was just ace to see him and the dogs again.

First thing this morning I was out in the garden - weeding in my pj's!
Then I got dressed - nah! And did some proper work. It's all grown SO much in just 18 days.
Did lots of weeding.
The tomato bed is doing well - we have 14 plants. A mixture of heritage ones

The main veggie garden is also looking good - just the paths round it were pretty weedy. There's a beetroot about the size of a football.

this is the first time I've ever done climbing beans as I'm not really a fan of them but lloyd is - and they are great! I love how they just climb themselves.

Even the potatoes are all up and banked up twice - in the background are the ones we planted earlier - soon to be eaten!

The diasies have gone mad

and so has the wee bottle brush.
