I did give in and watch the Ladies Singles final at Wimbledon after working hard in the garden. I have started to tackle the bottom growth on the lime tree that encroaches from next door onto my front drive. It is a horrible sticky, dirty job as the leaves are all covered in sticky aphids, but has to be done else they will all fall down onto the drive in the autumn and also sully any vehicle which comes up the drive. There was a gentle breeze which helped to keep me cool physically but I cannot say the same of my mental state. Horrid job.
