There has been all sorts going on around here. Last week we had 5 large trees removed ( for safety reasons )- all lifted out over garden or kiwifruit blocks without doing any damage.We had professionals do this lot. Today we had the big Chipper come and munch them up into a huge pile of mulch for us to put around the avocado trees after it rots down some.
This week I am on Jury Duty.That meant an early start yesterday and horrendous traffic to get there in plenty of time. On this occassion I wasn't needed so was back home after about 2 hours. Not needed today or tomorrow but might be on Thursday. It really stuffs up ones planning, but never mind. This is the 3rd time I have been called in the last few years - last time I got on. Hope they share it around a bit more cause the recompense is pitiful - still I would want a thinking sensible jury if it was me on the other end so I suppose one has to do ones public duty. I sat and hand sewed while I waited - some of those twiddling their thumbs commented that they wished they had thought to bring something to do! ( Just like "The Tale of Two Cities" - woman quilts in courtroom! ) Those things are always hurry up and wait!
