    I find the thing stopping me from getting anything done is either food, the weather or being mildly hungover.

    Other than that like today she got a nice 3 hour clean. Monday is also booked in.

    You say Monday is booked in but its due to be the hottest bank holiday in years, so I am guessing the Barbie and Beer are going to be getting in the way .

    Great looking garden. Love the open views you have. I have open views across the Cumbrian fells from my back garden so I appreciate what you have there.
