Boxing Day

Merry Christmas to you if you should be reading this. I hope it was a pleasant one.

Our local bike shop was recently inundated with boxes given that they were taking delivery of extra bikes to be given as gifts over Christmas. I took a hot half hour out of my busy schedule to pack the back of the ute with flattened cardboard boxes and other assorted bits of cardboard.

Upon clearing the corridor of the bike shop and the back door area and giving them a little more breathing space, I gleefully drove home. I was very excited with being able to help them out and clear space whilst adding to my current stockpile of resources, ready for the garden make-over in late summer and early autumn.

This cardboard will be put to good use building up the soil and smothering weeds where required.
