Blink and you’ll miss it…


Pyrford Lock with the Bank Holiday sun trying to come out

With the grass growing at such a furious pace, I sometimes feel the need to step back and remember how good it looks when it’s been cut. However briefly. Like today.

With Pyrford Lock being one of the busiest on the Navigation (it’s right next to a busy pub and on a popular dog walking route) you have to get up pretty early to get the mower, edging iron and strimmer working to not get in the way. With the lock being a popular spot for boaters, gongoozlers, picnics, bikes and dogs, however hard I try I always seem to disturb someone’s peace. On a day like this, with an ‘office’ like this a little bit less time in bed in the morning is really not a hardship and believe me I know how lucky I am.
