Today we had a ‘day off’ from cycling. It was overcast and there was a pleasant, cool breeze after days of hot sunshine, perfect for doing some work in the garden. Paul did some masonry repairs on the stone steps to the house and I decided to tackle the couch grass and weeds in the herb garden. It was tough going and with the uneven surface I almost tumbled over digging and tugging the damned stuff out.

Earlier this morning I picked some spring onions and put them in a glass of water to keep them fresh for this evening. I have just taken them out of the water, peeled off the muddy outer leaves and chopped them to go with a courgette sauce. I then accidentally picked up the glass of water and drank it. Urgh! Yuk! Disgusting! Quick, give me some alcohol.
