Been a bit busy elsewhere what with seeing both grandchildren in Bristol last weekend and 3 days at work both weeks - so the grass has grown. The spuds are even more grown. The summer raspberries and loganberries have largely gone to the birds. Have picked some blackcurrants and made a first batch of jam.

It is now mid-afternoon and I have only just arrived here after dealing with boat and other problems. Did a token bit of mowing where the grass is easy.

Tomorrow I'm off for a week visiting Mum and then Katy and then a cycle ride back. Hope to be back here before Thursday night. Might do an early morning mow tomorrow if I get packed tonight. [I don't think I did!]
