Didn't even leave the house today...well other than for the garden! Decided that unless I get to grips with the garden early on in the season it will get away from me, in an overgrown kind of way. April in the UK would normally be a tad on the wet side but we have had weeks of dry weather so the normal racing away of the plants has been stunted slightly. Unless something major happens we will no doubt get that announcement that it has been the driest April since the last dry April. So I cranked up the hedge trimmers and attacked the miles of bloody hedges we have at the rear and front of our house. Perhaps a slight exaggeration but the house is on a hill and over the years I have let them grow a little higher and a little wider than I should have. Consequently they are a bitch...I have done half, it has taken me 5 hours to sort them and I am almost afraid to sleep as I know I will wake unable to move. I have often wondered....if I stayed awake would the aches still come? Any doctors out there?
Also, boy have I had the piss about me today....Jesus! I woke and almost at once was in such a bad mood. It was kind of counter productive really as I was alone doing the gardening and so just pissed myself off......Jan came home ans sussed what I was about and so left me to stew in my own juices. I've not spoken to another soul all day so have had a lot of brain activity. Don't you hate that when there is no peace in your head...I know I have been thinking about shit but don't know what...it ends up being kinda self perpetuating when all I wanted was to be thinking of nothing. None of that makes any sense does it. Over to you James...you usually have the answer in 3 words.
Had Mackerel for supper....very boney but worth the effort as it was very tasty. Always good to top up on those healthy fish oils that they keep going on about. I used to drink Cod Liver Oil from a bottle but it was always making me feel sick....and I lost a few friends as a result!

Today's photo is one from the most recent trip and was taken on an agricultural plain called Katharo. Located at a height of 1150 Metres it is the perfect place to go to escape the heat of the summer although it can very often be cut off in the winter due to snow. This time of year it is full of life and in particular wild Orchids.
