At the moment just the front-the back is a  worse mess there is bindweed everywhere this guy will just pull it off without treating it

I took a thermometer outside 30C in the shade 40C in the sun and rising

Who is up for a bit of beach volleyball?

Gardener has gone-having seen and watched him-I would be ashamed in that standard of work -have just had a look there is still rubbish and weeds-he must come very cheap that is all I can say

Just checked-there is one in the street going for £150000-but it needs a lot of work -he paid £160000 5 or so years ago doesn't show it is up for sale at the moment but something must be going on

Theses are home-made mini-quiches but there are only two-if there were more I would send out the usual invites

I am not in a position to answer that question - I am all alone-Dave the gardener is now using a strimmer on the weeds in the paving-this looks like a one off cosmetic job

Mince will not cook itself is the only advice I can offer-we are having quiches pre- cooked from the freezer-it is all about being a boy scout

There was something hiding behind a bush this morning-could have been a mouse,a rat or a frog couldn't see- but could see the bush moving

Have just been reading about Portsmouth FC-it is being given the last rites

Make a lasagne- have it with salad?

I wonder if it is piece work for a one off clearance or and hourly rate-will follow with interest

I said to him you will need more than one bag-he said he had two-then he turned away -he may be under orders not to chat-now pulling the bindweed of the roses-that is as far as I am going.

I am hoping this a plan for selling the house- then that takes me to the worry stage -who do we get next?

They must have spent well in excess of £30000-I did like the result but can really do without the sentimentality-again will they look after it,does she garden or him for that matter-I am hoping they do return visits.

LOD did have a frustrating ending the bad boys got away with it-the ones with the white hats did not win-is that the end or will there be more?

Gardener does not speak

I have the window open-this is what I heard

-I knocked the door

-I was in the shower

-I rang your phone

-I didn't hear it

-I rang your mobile

-don't have switched on

Catman has gone to work-he said he won't recognise it when he gets back-at the moment it is just secateurs so is quiet-he is and old chap called Dave

What's the weather like in your area?

I put the washing on before 7-that is now hanging out to dry

Something odd is happening with neighbours-there has been a gardener sitting in his car outside catman's house for 20 minutes-now gone inside-no activity yet-typical of this slob not to be up and ready and keep someone waiting -have seen him do it to taxi drivers as well-will update in due course-could be living Kate's nightmare

I find it odd that people buy a house with a garden and do nothing to it-on my stroll to the doctor's on Monday at least 50% of front gardens were not tended to and some completely neglected.

Update-he is working on the front-pulling out weeds-there will be some returned cat messages to stumble across

Kate-did you take some pictures? and how was the mexican dish?
