Short-term failures...

I'm worried that my short-term memory is failing.

Whilst enjoying a cup of coffee at lunchtime, I remembered that I needed a new petrol cap for my lawnmower, as the original has split.

It has been well over a week since I last posted on this blog. Don't worry, I'm quite well thanks and there's no need to call me an ambulance, but I have been lacking inspiration and enthusiasm recently.

I have also been distracted with a number of other things, but am in catch up-mode now, so there should be a series of new blog postings here presently.

One of those many distractions, was setting up yet another new blog, on Tumblr.

Garden Elf & Safety

There's a lot of truth in the old adage, "as easy as falling off a ladder", as I discovered a couple of days ago. Once the ladder starts moving, you're a passenger.

Fortunately I was only three rungs up a step-ladder and I fell away from the nearby Greenhouse, so the situation wasn't quite as bad as it might have been...
