Afternoon all. Patio relaxation is in effect right now as I recover from removing and/or cutting back the overgrown shrubs in the front garden at Trev Towers. Still got lots to do but at my age it has to be done in stages. Amusingly my idiot neighbour is still infatuated with his new very cheap sounding B&Q petrol-powered hedge trimmer and if I notice him going out later I'll get my trusty Stihl battery-powered one out and tidy up the mess he made of my hedge yesterday, without asking me, while walking all over the thyme to get to to it which is in full flower and covered in bees, which was why I'd not done it. I do hope the damn thing breaks soon but seeing as he won't know he should drain the carb over winter it will probably not start come spring. Snigger.

Hope you've all got equally good weather where you are and you're enjoying it as best you can.

It wasn't so much the handling, I was concerned it would burst

Someone posted up about a month or so ago about Amazon and Cadbury Blueberry and Coconut chocolate. Mine turned up today.

That was me. How much did you get? I had some delivered today but I'm working nights so haven't been home to check it yet

Evening all.

As half expected, after sitting all day in my increasingly hot study, responding to dumb requests and sitting in on several pointless calls, it has now clouded over and is threatening rain as soon as I get out on the patio. Ah well, at least it is nice and warm.

Off to see an old work colleague tomorrow for a distanced coffee so will take the bike as the forecast is good again for then.

Happy weekend everyone!
