Last weekend I was busy, busy, busy with raking the leaves up. I keep telling myself that it is good for the waistline, but then my back tells me that I need a rest! Who do I listen to? Eventually I have to listen to my back and give it a rest for a while before I can continue, this means that not all the raking was done in a day, I had to spread it over 3 days. Thank goodness we are having a very quiet spell of weather at the moment with hardly any wind, so the lawns are now still relatively free of leaves for a change.
I will now wait and see what the weather brings us, will we get a gale that will bring the next lot of leaves down, or will I get a rest before the rake has to come out again? Any leaves that come down today can hopefully be collected as Derek cuts the grass tomorrow and I can get back to cutting back and tidying up, which should mean no more raking of leaves until at least next weekend, my back will be very grateful!
