Swathes of uncut grass in the Groves to encourage wild flowers and insects also encourage little girls to make daisy chains and collect posies. Grown ups seem to enjoy picnicking among the cool, green, aromatic leaf blades and buttercups. Country ways return. Long may the grass stay long.
A stiff necks that has haunted me through the winter drives me at last to a Chiropractic. My neck is after one session already more tensile. But almost the best thing is that the chiropractic, name of Andy, is a regular at The Compasses (or almostt). Unlike my dentist to whom I want to chat but because of the nature of his trade I can't, the chiropractic is free to talk as he manipulates bone and muscle. He I and find much in common including beer and cricket. He likes test matches as distinct from 20/twenty, which we agree is not the sort of cricket you can call cricket.
