Before setting off for work, I spent some time in the front garden.
I set myself regular tasks both inside and outside, that way you keep on top of things.
Today’s job was to brush all the weeds (not that there were many, just tiny shoots) out of the block paving on the drive and the area directly outside our home.
I also did the pavement and road.
There’s wrong with being ‘house proud’ as long as it’s for genuine reasons.
