The mowing and strimming and carting of cut grass down into the woods beyond the bottom fence took 5 hours.
So I'm now behind with everything else, like making bread and laundry.
As well as doing the grass, I spent part of the weekend getting everything set up for the next batch of creative writing students. The course doesn't officially start until next Saturday, but about 10 of them are already online and raring to go, so I have posted welcome messages and an icebreaker and got everything organised. Also ran the mail merge and printed off the 25 Hello I'm Your Tutor letters, which went in the post last night -- apart from the one to Holland and the one to Jersey, which need more postage and I don't know how much, so will need to walk up the Post Office with them.
