It has been a glorious day. Lots of sunshine and a slight breeze to keep it from getting too hot. There was no football again this morning (other than the rerun of last night's Match of the Day). We could only muster 9 players and the minimum is really 10.

The Gorse Fox made the most of the time with a few domestic chores and a concentrated attack on the blanket weed that has been forming in the rill. It didn't't take too long to clear it, but there must have been several kilos of the green tendrils. A splash of bleach has been added to try and keep things clear. It certainly looks ok at present.

Good win for Spurs on the opening day of the season at Newcastle. The Gorse Fox is not sure what it is but he's never liked Newcastle United. Some teams you like, some you are indifferent to, and there's always a few you dislike. They fall into the latter category (for no rational reason).

Had a very interesting chat with someone on Facebook today. She has had her DNA done and has had some excellent results in that she not only has a better view of her ethnicity (it wasn't exactly what she had thought) she has also made contact with a cousin she didn't previously know of. The Gorse Fox is really looking forward to getting his results... and will get the Silver Vixen's done.
