How quickly Friday comes around. And the first of May . Not a lot done today except the month's bills sorted and paid and a couple of letters which have been waiting a day or two answered. Doing jobs like this is actually quite satisfying I find - typing the letter, filing it, putting the original in its envelope, addressing it, stamping it and walking over the road to the post box, which is opposite my bungalow, and posting it. Job done.
Then, sitting at my computer I heard a strange noise and after listening, puzzled, for a few minutes, I got up and went to the window. And, yes, as it always is, it was D - the man who keeps my garden trim - cutting the lawns. The man from the council came this morning and mowed the grass verge opposite (you may remember earlier in the week I photographed the thousand or so dandelions growing there). For at least a couple of days there will not be a dandelion to be seen - either on my lawn or on the verge. (sorry bees)
A whole hour's gardening with Monty Don on television this evening - bliss. Half an hour before it starts so just time to make myself a cup of something and settle down to enjoy it. Until tomorrow.....virtual coffee morning at ten.
