For the first few hours of the day I wondered what this page was going to be about. Then I did some gardening. The war on weeds is necessary at the moment because we have just had quite a bit of rain following a long stretch of sunshine. Isn't it amazing how the weeds then grow up like mad while all the things that you deliberately planted - vegetables - don't do the same?
It seems like that with life, too. Bad habits seem to grow without any help at all, while those things we know will be good for us seem to take an awful lot of hard work and nurturing.
