Coming together...

Fingers crossed the garden should be completed tonight. I'll be out of work at 4pm sharp, and dashing home to see what the final result is! Once that's done, there is still a fair chunk of work that needs doing, and as all my weekends seem to vanish into the ether, I've taken some time off next week to try and get everything done.

Teachers Pet...

To Do Lists

My results so far have been less than stellar, with a grand total of 1 run in 4 innings, and handing over about 15 runs an over when I bowl (including a metric shitload of wides).
