We did get everything done we needed to and I felt a sneaking sense of achievement as we trudged home to double gin and tonics. The whole thing did resemble a scene from The Good Life and the thought of it was one of the few things that raised a smile:
This morning we are sore, exhausted and tight-eyed. It may take a few gallons of coffee and a bag of Easter chocolate before we are ready for another full day up the allotment!
