So just in case the last post's lawn picture misled anyone into thinking that we have found a lawn mower that works I thought I better confess with the above update pic taken less than 3 minutes ago - it also shows that the dog too is not immune to the ravages of time and has definitely got a little greyer in the year that's passed. (and ably demonstrates how a messy lawn can lead to a tidier looking garden overall - since you can no longer see the holes she has dug - having said that - it also makes you more likely to break an ankle if you attempt to negotiate around it - there's plusses and minusses to everything)
A close up of Doggy's messy do - maybe I should take the shears to her? Internet voting time - leave a comment if you think I should tidy up her eyebrows, ears etc... or not.
In other news, someone rang Joe Duffy this week to say they had applied for a 10 day turnaround passport 8 days ago and it still hadn't arrived and they were getting worried about it, even though it wasn't technically late... yet. I can't think of any parallels to that in my life right now, but if I do - then you can expect to hear me on the national airwaves, and not a minute before.
