On Friday the girls and I went up to my mum's house to cut the hedge and mow the lawns. The weather over the last few has been nothing short of amazing. We spent an really busy day hacking, chopping and cutting. The end reult - a reasonably tidied up house. As I am typing, it is 8.30 and the sun is beginning to set. The garden smells delightful and the kids are glued to a rerun of Doctor Who. I have a book about the Peninsular War upstairs waiting for me and the whole evening to enjoy it. Life is truly good!
