I have my sketch pad back

Turned out I did want it back, after all. I've been spending the last couple of days scraping and scratching away at all of the half-finished odds and sods that were lurking within. That, and listening to a new crop of tenovertwelvers, and looking after cats, and fretting that I don't have time enough for gardening.

I also bought a ruck-jack, which is a jacket that converts into a rucksack, patent pending. It has secret straps in the wrist vents. It rules.

What's been news? well, we have a damp course. I germinated a measly one of the climbing courgettes. Kitten has taken to hunting spiders in the garden. The cat flap is now unlocked. Springwatch has started again. The Chelsea Flower show coverage was unwatchably bad. My hair is too long.

Happy half term.
