What did i do this weekend. Well i cut down a tree.
Sounds funny??? yep but that is what i spent most of saturday and today doing.
I live in a house with a a garden that is nearly 100 foot long. yep seriously long!!! with a big garden like that comes a HUGE amount of grass, trees, shrubs a rose bushes. But some of those trees are seriously huge.
Now i am one of those people that always thinks the worse things are going to happen, and this one tree was just to close to the house for comfort. So i bring it up casually with dh who i refer to as R..
the conversation went something like this..
me : that tree is seriously close to the house!
R: yep ( completely uninterested in the conversation)
me: seriously close!!!! ( more urgency in my voice now)
me: what if it up roots and falls over onto the house???
R:that is not going to happen wend, trees just dont fall down for no reason, now do they ( added sarcasm in his tone)
Yep! i should have had that taped as the next night there was a big storm and one of trees that was in our garden fell over.
Haaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! insert gloating dance. Yep i was all like 'dude i was soooooooooo right'
So we have spent the whole weekend and last weekend cutting down the most enormous tree that is situated right next to the house with nope, no where near the right equipment for the job.
And H up a tree with his ladder attached to the tree with a bit of rope.
Do you know it costs nearly £500 to have a tree cut down by professonal people???
Yep that is a huge chunk of tree that has just fallen on my conservatory!!!!! Which i was assured would never happen. Can you see my cuttlebug on the window sill of my scraproom???
Anyway latest news from Papermaze is that the workshops that i do at the shop a few times a month are going to be up for sale ( as a trail run to see how they sell) on the internet. So you dont have to be close to the shop to do them. This is nail biting. I have some very faithful followers who come to the workshops at the shop and we have a fab time. But that is easy, as i know them and we have a fantastic time and laugh and joke. But this is something more scary!!!!! wether or not they sell is the scary part i think but we will see. Here is a peek at the first workshop that is going to be available online to buy.
Gulp!!!!! very nervous about it, but Vanessa assures me it will be okay, so i guess i just have to have more faith in myself huh!!!
