I'm very fond of forsythia, although ours is not as striking as others I have seen round here, it makes me feel happy. Here it is in front of the panel Mr B put in front of the ugly wonky wall our neighbour had built, as well as the one remaining shrub the neighbour didn't cruelly chop down. At the top of the shot you can see the shelf which has our cat deterrent system in place. I'll blip that one day.
All of which to say it was a dull day. Vacuuming was pretty much the peak. When the kids got home from school (ok, that was the peak) I could barely string a sentence together. Tomorrow I have lots of calls lined up, so hopefully I will have regained the power of speech.
