We often get scorpions in the house at this time of year, but this is unheard of: seven in one weekend!


This week I received my first and only Christmas card (thanks Bee!). No worries: If past years are anything to go by, there’ll be a steady trickle arriving from now until Easter. I keep them in storage for the following Christmas.

I wandered lonely as a clod
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden spring onions
