dejunglification - part 1There are few better ways to prepare for an England match than by spending the day doing something useful - Beth and I made a start taming on the jungle outside the back of our house. It was the perfect weather for it - dry but not too sunny; we took two and a half 'Hippo' bags of green waste to the tidy tip, as our contribution to Luton's recycling figures.

The plan is to populate the lower expanse with pebbles, potplants and a bench; we'll cover the second bed for a while to kill off all the old growth, and then (hopefully) cultivate some vegetables, and put some little purple flowers by the patio at the top.

Then, it'll be time to work our way up the garden, hacking down the brambles and clearing some of the overgrown hedges and trees. More on that when we get round to it!

As promised, below (and in the gallery) are a couple of photos of Lenni's sports day; you'll also see my first ever submission to YouTube - a video of Eleanor's running race. I don't think I'd get away with putting the "Mum's race" on-line... it was almost frightening to see twenty or so women approaching at high-speed. Beth took part, despite protestations - and didn't come last! There's no footage of the Dad's race, which is a shame, because at least three of the men hurtled into the hedge at the end of the small field where the games were taking place. It was most amusing.

And that's about it - I've got a busy six days of work ahead (Tuesday's the only day off between now and Thursday) coming up, and the weekend after that is the pre-school fete and the Wireless Festival... busy, busy life!
