Uncle Doug commented that he'd seen enough dog photos, and wanted to know how the garden was doing this year. Well, we're just starting to get zucchini, the tomatoes are green but growing and the lawn is fried thanks to it getting really hot and threatening storms every day, but little coming of it.
Thanks to Caro I've go a little bit of work as the pool guy for a couple with a house just up the hill from us (they do holiday lets). Day before yesterday, in the blazing sun I realised it was easiest to clean the pool from within, very amused at getting such an amazing job. The weather started turning later, so I started to put down the big parasol they've got over their patio, only to find it was already broken. Spent the following couple of hours fixing it, in the pouring rain that for once did arrive.[Danny Ayers]
