Me too, Pippa. I need an extra day every second day really. I'm with you about the weeds and you'll never get rid of the oxalis especially if you have the brown leaved one with the lovely bright yellow flowers. It looks so like the soil it is invisible till the beautiful flowers appear and by then it has made runners a foot long. Everything has been very floriferous this year and the wild flowers in the meadows look gorgeous so the weed problem will be even worse next year.
As for celandines, they disappear so quickly in the spring after they have flowered I just enjoy them when they are there. Funnily enough, the brown-leaved celandine, which is very beautiful, is not nearly so invasive.
