Yesterday I did some serious grunt work on what will eventually be a garden.

you can't see how truly dirty my back it, but you get the idea....

…and in an update to my dealings with the law (cue The Bill theme tune) I called them back on Friday and said that I had a prior engagement and wouldn’t be able to help them until Monday. Then I ran like the wind to the computer shop and made them transfer all my laptop data to the hard drive from M’s computer and then erase the laptop hard drive. *large sigh of relief*
As for my insurance claim….I wait and wonder if I could really be that lucky….
