2015 (written 20 July 2015):
Depression hit me again and I agreed with the Crisis Team that I wouldn’t go to the allotment which was disappointing. I prepared myself for a fairly miserable day. Fortunately, my family came up with a few ideas to keep me occupied and some of it involved gardening 🙂
My parents have Lady’s Mantle growing rampantly in their garden:
They want rid of it as it really is taking over the available space. So I donned my favourite gardening gloves and spent a pleasant half hour hacking it back so that it can be dug out. And I do like digging …
Afterwards, my mother and I went to a Heavy Horse Show. It was great to be outside in the fresh air with the grass (and mud!) under my feet looking at these magnificent animals. There weren’t just heavy horses being shown – my favourites were the donkeys.
