Lots of construction work at the allotment today and I managed to skewer my arm on a hawthorn bush whilst I was clearing some rubbish . It bled for a while but I don't think there is anything still stuck in it, but it has made a massive lump and bruise . This gardening malarkey is worse than running for cuts and scrapes!!
Elspeth - don't worry about Mr. Moose - he is apparently quite tame and was hand-reared as a calf (although that might not be much consolation if you bump into him on the track and he is feeling frisky )!
