It's that time of the year where the nights really draw in and I think "That was summer?". I like to sit out with a cup of tea and watch the night draw in but it's currently chucking it down. Watering the plants is one less job although I think the tomato plants are on their last gasp. Time to plan the next lot of plants and pay a visit to the homebrew shop if I want to brew some beer for over the winter. I still haven't had any replies from the local builders I have contacted despite phone calls, leaving messages on their websites and calling in person! Don't they want the business or is it the magic words "insurance job" that has them beating a drove away from my door? I am off tomorrow so I guess further phone calls will have to be made.
I also have plans to visit London next month for the first time in many years. The last time I was there it struck me how dirty, noisy and smelly it was... home in fact. It will be good to catch up with friends and to see my old stomping grounds.
I am only going down for two days because truth to tell I prefer to be in Lincolnshire. With only a few days off at the end of October I have to squeeze in that trip, visit Essex and crack on with some jobs up here as well. It'll be interesting to see what has changed and what remains as I remember it. Anyhow, time for a cuppa and to wander the patch of grass that is my domain.
