    So, jobs that need to be done:

    1) Finish filling the last raised veg bed which has completed the 'terracing' / levelling of the veg garden
    - postponed Monday because of the weather
    - postponed Tuesday waiting for grocery delivery then grandson's birthday gifts and soil too wet to sieve
    - postponed Wednesday as spent too much time on this forum

    2) Install the pond
    - postponed Monday because of the weather
    - postponed Tuesday waiting for grocery delivery then grandson's birthday gifts and couldn't be asked
    - postponed Wednesday as spent too much time on this forum

    3) Clear shed out ready for delivery of replacement
    - postponed Monday because of the weather
    - postponed Tuesday waiting for grocery delivery then grandson's birthday gifts and trying to organise new concrete base by telephone (where are all the builders?)
    - postponed Wednesday as spent too much time on this forum

    Quite a productive week for me
