1. I am usually very busy holding down an armchair - purely to avoid its being blown away, you understand.
2. Last February one of our Practice Nurses gave my wife and I a dressing down on the subject of weight (that is, too much of it, you understand). "You have enough carbohydrate disposed about your persons to keep you going for the rest of your lives", she said. Struck by the savings on food purchases this makes possible I put myself on a very expensive diet, and for50 Guineas I will tell you what it is. I have managed to lose about a stone so far. My trousers keep falling down, but not in public yet.
3. Trying to get out among the weeds between rain showers to hack down a few more.
4. Sometimes the excitement is almost too much for me.
