FOOTNOTES: A warm sun beating down, a gardener returning to duty, albeit wearing a look of pained martyrdom, together with a plaster cast on his wrist, the country laying down the burden of political in- fighting, if temporarily, Chaplin and I returned to repairing the damage caused in the garden by the recent high winds. This was a grave mistake, as it turned out, for, whilst bending over to pick some litter blown into a flowerbed, I felt a muscle in my back give way and to the obvious amusement of Chaplin, gave a yelp and limped painfully back into the cottage. One of the things I have discovered since getting older is that despite all the pain killers, balms and ointments I apply to the affected area, it will take ages for the pain to subside and for me to move easily again. This proved the case and it was a couple of days before I was able to move comfortable and then it still left me with a nagging reminder of what I had done. I was forced into having to rest and, as if to underline my stiff and sore back, Chaplin stretched and sneered at me as he washed himself and showed off the suppleness of his own body. I get my own back by being in charge of the biscuits. So, not much gardening done by myself, but enjoyable hours spent in the sun, watching the birds, who despite Chaplin, still nest high up in our trees, feeding their young. Have a good week and go safely.
