In fact today has been a very productive day with me not being the principal contributor. David woke in a mood of 'we are going to achieve today' and achieve we did. The first target was the fences which had become rather slack and in need of attention: the posts have been knocked home where needed and the wire has now been retentioned. The afternoon was spent doing other jobs in the garden. We gave up when I'd reached my use-by date and David decided that breathing in midges was a step too far (I should add that most of the afternoon was midge free but my arms and neck pay testament to the persistence of the little blighters. Thank heaven they don't affect me or itch: they just look a mess.). A friend recently described it as a 'low maintenance' garden. We obviously have completely different concepts of the amount of work maintenance requires.
Anyway this evening for the second evening running David is doing the cooking. I love cooking but it is good to have someone else do it for a change.
