Hot Weekend

It has been a very hot weekend. Work was hectic, the trains were sweaty and didn't run on time, but Mrs Haddock kept the fridge fully stocked with cold beer, so everything worked out fine in the end.

The garden drooped a bit due to the +30 deg C temps, but after a substantial watering all looks ok, apart from some parts of the lawn. The lawn is of course laid turf (well I am English). When we laid the Rollrasen it caused a little bit of a sensation on our housing estate. A lot of people came to view it as they had never heard of such a thing. I had to tell several people "Yes, this is real grass" - komisch, oder?

The dog next door, called Lucky, insists on peeing on our lawn on a regular basis. Unfortunately our Common Box hedge is not yet large enough to stop his urinary invasions. But I think he does understand a few basic words of English as he does seem to respond when I impolitely tell him to go away.

But on a more refreshing note note Mrs Haddock has been plying me with herbal tea made from peppermint & apple mint fresh from out of our garden, and very nice it is too.
