Dank evening with the squad to see out February. Discussions spiralled on the RWQ; which was basically "what's good on the telly?" Hoof trimming seemed to crop up again, along with a jury show/come social experiment, Netflix dramas, Happy Valley (yes Sharon!) and some lad that turned Jeff Bezos into a rowing boat(which is obviously this week's winner).
Down the Greenway we went with sewage gases caressing our nasal passages along route. We spent our power-hour sowing seeds and making another wildflower meadow. Under the cover of night vision wasn't optimal, but we did a rather good job on the meadow front. Filled the whole thing. Abbey Gardens aristocracy did a spiffingly good job too, in the warmth of their palace, sowing various seeds for the months to come and discussing the racket from riff-raff outside digging. On a serious note, can't wait to get in here come April, bring on the evening light.
Hope you guys had a good drink post-graft, see you next week. We've got fences to move at the allotments next to Plaistow Primary, sign up here to continue being a community hero.
ps. Title pun for the gardeners!

As Miss V was unable to climb her stairs, she directed us to the bedroom where we would find the parts for the bed she wanted built and left us to it. Thankfully (based on previous similar missions...) this bed was of the Ikea flavour, and once we'd opened the right boxes to find it's constituent ingredients, we got cooking.
Helpfully, the instructions were pretty clear and we had all the necessary parts, although we did have to borrow a screwdriver from Miss V, who had a well stocked Tupperware box for us to choose our weapon of choice from.
With two of us on the task, we were able to move the frame around at various points to make the building a bit easier, and it wasn't too long before we had it constructed and were laying the slats across the frame. As Miss V couldn't see the finished article, I took a picture to show her.
"Oh, that's what it looks like" she exclaimed, laughing...but she was so pleased that her grand daughters would now have a proper bed to sleep in when they come to visit.
