It’s not all pulling out brambles, oh no. As you can see in this video, I’ve also had time to reconstruct an electric organ with a sledgehammer. That was fun!

Whilst in the garden today, I learnt about the tragedy that is Sierra Leone, a place about which until now I knew nothing except that it has the world’s shortest life expectancy (@25.9 years). Learnt that in a Japanese newspaper class. I also heard about the horrendous land-grab currently going on in China, “Worse than the Japanese invasion of the 1930s”, and similar crimes in India and South Africa. All very grim. Makes you realise how blessed we are in the West, with our relative security and access to social welfare. The inequality in this world is just staggering.

Hmm, on that happy note, I’ll be off.
