Happy birthday Bekkie!
Hi everyone, from the comfy sofa...
Beaus Mum - you'd recognise me today by my Quasimodo hunch back after an entire morning spent kneeling on the block paving, then long afternoon mowing, edging, weeding, clearing leaves, pruning rampant shrubs - and clearing up by the light of the nearby street lamp. The green recycling bin is stuffed to overflowing.
2 days to go... wish I had longer to sort this garden out. But at least it's beginning to look a bit more cared-for, so if my daughter and her OH decide to put the house on the market, it'll be more saleable. And if they don't, it'll be much less depressing for my daughter (the gardener), until she has time to get to grips with the garden herself.
Great David Attenborough programme to watch, if I can stay awake!
