Bad weather & DIY
Since I came back from Italy the weather up here in Glasgow has been…not the best, let’s put it this way. It’s not even been raining much, but the wind has been quite strong for a few days, to the point that one of the huge centuries-old white willows in my local park has basically split in half. Definitely not the right weather to take photos of wildflowers, but today it was finally good enough to go out, and I’ve snapped photos until my phone died, so you can expect some new posts in the next days. Yes, I should get a camera, my old one has developed a personality and literally does what it wants regardless of what buttons I’m pressing.
As I’ve not been able to write much and I’m not the kind of person who just watches TV in my free time, I tackled one of the projects I’ve been looking forward to for a very long time. I had ran out of growing space on the windowsill which enjoys the best sun exposure, so I went to a DIY store, bought wood and a hand saw -luckily I already had paint and varnish- and over the past three days I built myself the perfectly fitting shelving unit I couldn’t find anywhere, all for £20. And although I’m not a carpenter I am quite happy with the final result, which basically quadrupled the space on the windowsill you see behind it, at least for small plants and compact succulents.
I’m probably prouder than I should, but I hadn’t built something in ages and I was aching for it!
