Another week that’s flown past without me realising it… I’m not really sure what’s happened to be completely honest :)
Saturday night was a whole lot of BBQ thanks to MrK, with all manner of dead animal presented to us, having been tended to and smoked throughout the day. Quite lovely.
Today (Sunday) I cut the last large section off the rather dead paperbark tree in my backyard. I’ve only been concerned about it for nearly three years, probably a good time to sort it out. There’s extensive borer-insect damage throughout, so whatever I don’t burn in short order will have to go to the tip. Can’t risk them going off and finding other things to eat! The full-sized chainsaw’s blade was terribly dull, even after I’d had a go at sharpening it, but a hand saw finished the required job, and the tiny-but-mighty chainsaw on a stick did the needful to take down the higher branches with surprising finesse.
After that RMB and I went to see Love & Friendship, which is a terribly kooky and adorable movie with Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Fry and surely you haven’t kept reading this, go see it. I quite enjoyed it, even if I did fall asleep in one part - it was dark and I was quite tired. :(
Other than that, we’ve spent altogether too much time getting out and about and playing Pokemon Go. That’s actually a good thing, because amongst other places I finally got to explore the park under the Gateway Bridge, finding a few pokespots and real life actual rabbits hiding in the bushes!
