I’ve been busier than ever with the burgeoning theatre section of EF, so much so that I’ve had to turn down a lot of stuff on the basis that I can’t be in two or more places at once, and there are only so many hours in the week.
Thankfully, we’ve recently taken another theatre critic on board to help out. This doesn’t mean that I can sit back and relax, so much as that we can cover even more events. He’s already proving a big help!
The garden is finally beginning to give off the appearance of having been cultivated, rather than simply left to the mercy of nature and entropy.
This is all down to my endeavours, of course. And a neighbour who kindly topped some of our loftier trees. And the fact that yesterday we had two arborists in to cut back our sprawling sycamore whose branches were interfering with the eaves of a neighbouring property. These polite, punctual and efficient tree-fanciers have resolved the main problem in the garden, and kindly taken the hewn-off branches with them leaving us debris-free.
