Earlier this morning I was wandering around my back yard in bare feet, ostensibly looking for weeds but in truth just loving the feel of the lush grass underfoot. We've had a couple of weeks of regular rain and everything has suddenly sprouted. Lawn was mowed on Wednesday but it's already looking untidy again. I'm not complaining, though; up to a few weeks ago my lawn was dry and crumbly underfoot.
Just about finished my Christmas shopping too now. I have two more gifts to buy and the decision has been made so it's just a matter of actually getting to the shops in question. Every year I swear that I'm going to start early, and every year it's a last-minute scramble, so I'm pretty pleased that this year I had just about everything done by late November.
