At last, we are back in touch with the outside world! More gremlins unfortunately, more visits from Talk Talk engineers, BT engineer is supposed to be coming but suddenly everything has started working again so I’m making the most of it before we are in limbo again!
We have had a couple of frosts so far and actually a week without rain, hooray!
We are still waiting for the lawn to dry out, even after a dry week, we still can’t get the lawn mower on it to cut the grass, which is rather long by now.
Most of the leaves are down now and have been hoovered up to make lovely leaf mould in a corner of the woodland. We just have one oak which is determined to hang onto its leaves for a bit longer, hopefully one more session should clear them all.
I will then just have the woodland to sort out ready for all the snowdrops in a few weeks time. Ever since we had the fallen leaves rising up on top of the snowdrops and I thought I had lost them all, we now gently rake the leaves off and replace them with a lovely mulch of last years leaves which sets the flowers off beautifully.
I now have all your e.mails to catch up on, I have been reading them all even though I couldn’t leave any messages!
