I did not want my husband to be doing too much as his work load is stupid and although there are some things I just can not physically do myself there was one thing that needed doing. The little fountain in our garden was blocked up with leaves and petals. Now with the webs that appear around it and my husband telling me there was a rather large arachnid that it belonged to ... this is where brave comes in.
I got rubber gloves on that come up to my elbow and went there with the hose and the gun attachment
that can turn up fiercely and I started to spray water in and grab out all the detritus in there. ( I had turned off the electric by the way) anyway I cleared a little bucket full of stuff and kept the hose running until it over spilt and was clear and clean. Then I went back in and turned it back on. I was shaking a little all the time but is is working perfectly again without coughing and choking and with an old paint brush and water I cleared away and webs and sprayed around it with rose scented cleaner in the hope Mr creepy eight leg monster might inhabit somewhere else deep in the garden and away from me. This was on Friday morning last week. My report to you is that there have been no more webs and I think I made it leave .... I need to stitch myself a bravery badge!!
When I was sat outside on Friday stitching in the glorious weather we are having well I kept a keen eye to see if it was about but nothing .... and the little wall mounted waterfall was babbling away perfectly and made the whole day very serene and happy. One job less for my husband to do. To say he was impressed is an understatement. The thing is if the arachnid had made an appearance I would have run and the whole thing would have been left to him, I know it!... still I felt grown up and a bit brave ...
For today though I have lots to be going on with and my kettle is full and waiting for me to go make another coffee and then take it out with my basket of stitching and starting my sewing day.
I hope you have a wonderful day whatever you are doing today, and as always 💮💮💮💮 ....
Happy Stitching! XX
