Another windy weekend has passed
Strong winds have blown over Denmark this weekend. Friday I had to check my neighbours trees in the backyard. An elm tree with a large ivy was close to collapsing. Their pine trees were also shaken heavily by the strong gust winds. Every storm losenes the roots more and more. They´ve tried to avoid the inevitable, by pouring compost and more soil on top of the roots, however eventually they will succumb for a storm.
This time, all the trees survived, meaning my orangerie and the old green house also survived. I live in a constant fear, that my old green house will be crushed by a tree. My fear is not so much about the green house itself, it´s more than 25 years old and slowly falling apart. It´s more all the broken glass I worry about. One will never be able to pick up all the tiny pieces of glass.
While the wind was blowing outside, I stayed inside nurturing the flowers, tomatoes, bell peppers and basil in the windows. The days are so long by now, that a light place in a window sill above a radiator is just perfect for early gardening.
The wind did not blow a job into my hands, unfortunately. Right now my main focus is finishing my course in some weeks. There are however, a lot of things I still need to attend to, meetings at the job centre and with my union.
Somehow, I´ve got used to not having a job by now. Quite sad somehow, as I consider myself as a very skilled and active person with a lot to offer an employer. The thing is, when you get only negative responses or no response at all, when sending an application, you end up considering yourself as a person with nothing to offer. Useless and with no skills that are relevant. In the end you also belive it. Not very good for your mental health…
What helps, is temperatures going up and a day full of sunshine. This has been one of those days – lovely!
