Into the unknown
After many many weeks of planning, burning the midnight oil, meetings, emergency arrangements should anything go wrong. One final check on fuel, safety gear, the journey into the unknown section of the front/side garden began. At 08.00 hours, yesterday morning the first nervous steps were made into the undergrowth. And this morning there is good and bad news, the good news is that I am really happy with the first days results, 3ft taken off one section of the hedge, the strimmer was heard during the night trying to excape from the shed, it does not know what happened it yesterday, going over and over the same areas. But finnally at the end of the day a decent clearence was made. (much still to be done)
The bad news is I am feeling every one of my years this morning (plus VAT) Going to Belvadere today so will have time to relax a little. There is a great buzz at having made a start, and seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. I must do a drawing of the garden and a take photo, I bet I have the strangest shaped garden due to the cul de sac, and the embankment on the other side. I did find signs of a campfire and my guide, called ''Herindoors Withteaandcoffee'' says we are only days behind Liveingstone. I am more hopefull of meeting him again, I think he came to me in my dreams last night, or maybe it was the effect of a strange insect bite, or most likely the wine from last night. Photos wil be posted soon of what is happening here.
