Mr Topbird has asked me to pass on his thanks for all your best wishes. He's a bit sore but otherwise unharmed & unperturbed by the thought of getting back on a bike. He thought a poorly arm was a good excuse to get out of washing up and other chores - but Mrs T'bird thought otherwise (I'm a cruel task mistress).
Seriously though - I'm just glad he's OK - could have been quite nasty. Why oh why do some people not think to leave lots of room when they want to get past a cyclist or horse rider? Often see near misses on our narrow country lanes.
Need to give the lawn a quick haircut now. Growth is starting to slow down so I think future cuts will just be 'as & when' tidy ups and vacuuming up leaves. I do love this time of year - such beautiful light and colours - but it plays merry-hell with my slight OCD tidy gene - all those leaves, all that droopy foliage, mud...
