The gardener came today, so the grossly overgrown hedge and lawn now looks neat and tidy, in fitting with the all neighbours’ gardens. It was all done while I was at work, so I was sadly unable to commend the man on a sterling effort, although I suspect he will want me to pay him.

As well as grass and hedge, there are also some flowers growing outside our house. I’m not too sure what they are. I know they look pretty. They might be tulips. At the weekend, Claire noticed a woman, on our lawn, picking them!

When Claire told me, I was flabbergasted by the cheek, the audacity and the theft! I can only suspect that with the garden so poorly maintained, the woman thought it was a public green, which had been unattended to by BANES Council (this is believable). So instead of stealing from me, she was stealing from the tax payer.

Now the lawn does look nice, I’ll have my beady eye out. If I see her return for the rest of my flowers, I’ll have her. Wearing my Victor Meldrew flat cap, I’ll yell from the house “What the bloody hell do you think you’re doing? If you hang on a minute I’ll fetch a vase and some water for you to put them in, if you like?”

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
