    Fukk knows what the gardener's been doing, but it isn't cutting the grass... that's for sure.


    Mendip there certainly has been quite a lot of rain lately, today is the first dry day (so far) for a long time. Can't be sure exactly how long because as you know one day just rolls into another out here.
    And yes the water does look a lot better but I am still uncertain about getting in it again.

    As for the gardener not cutting the grass, I think you might be being a bit harsh. I cut mine about a week and a half ago in between rain showers and it is already looking longer than your grass looks.
    I reckon if I actually sat still long enough I could see the fukking stuff grow. I am starting to lean towards the Thai solution i.e. weed killer.

    Good to see your daughter still remembers you and sends some pictures.

    ^ I had to promise to send her some tins of mushy peas... she has become quite the bargainer.

    You should have been less specific and sent her the dried marrowfat peas with instructions - just like mum used to make
