Kav's off on travels again, not nearly so exotic this time, only to Aberystwyth. He, and hopefully all our neighbours, missed a classic comedy moment yesterday. I was taking advantage of the beautiful spring weather and doing a spot of heavy lifting in the garden to remove some old posts that used to support a deck outside our backdoor, so we can have a patio at a more sensible height. Nicely concreted in posts of course, very heavy! Four of the five came out relatively easily with a bit of persuasion and the application of leverage with the trusty garden spade. Number five turned out to be a bit of a bugger and I was busy heaving away when the spade turned out not to be so trusty afterall, there was a loud crack and a resounding thud as I promptly landed on my arse! I'm sure I heard the sparrows sniggering! :-)
You'll all be pleased to hear that I got my way in the end - although the lump of concrete is still in the ground, the post is mine!!!!

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that my very first post on this blog was on 31 March 2005. My 1st anniversary has passed whilst I have been away.
I am about to go and check out to board a plane home after a very busy week. Hope everyone is okay.
Here is a pretty picture to keep you entertained. The town down there is Banff, not a bad place to come for a conference.
