Had a pretty full day, today.
I woke up early so I got up to watch the F1 Chinese Grand Prix. With Michael Schumacher starting from the pit lane and then having all sorts of issues during the race, it meant that the front runners actually got a chance to compete with each other and the top three were only separated by a few seconds for a change. The TV coverage could have been better, but I guess that just may be down to being used to a different set of sensibilities while watching other races.
Because that was all over before 9am, I managed to spend much of the morning doing some writing before breaking for lunch.
Instead of returning to the writing, I went out in the garden after lunch and trimmed the front hedges. I'm hoping it will now be the last time I have to do it this year. As I was into the groove, I spent some time tidying up the goldfish pond and cleaning out the header tank for the cascade. I think I should have cleaned it out a month ago as it was absolutely filled with mud. And frogs. By the time I finished, most of the mud had been transferred to me.
Once I scrubbed myself clean once more, I then spent some time working on an abstract painting I've been planning for over a week. I'm pleased with the results so far, but it will need some more work next weekend before it comes close to being finished.
I may spend some of this evening doing more writing...
