Having cleared the table of the last game I wanted to do something quick and simple so I set up a Napoleonic C&C game . I'm working my way through the base game which is the Peninsular war and this is Corunna , not as visually pleasing as O.S. toy soldiers but I'm busy outside in the garden because the weather is nice and I can play the odd move now and again .
I'm hacking the back hedge down to half size to make it easier to cut without needing steps and the present flock of chickens don't seem inclined to try and fly over it . The problem is it's quite hard going and I'm having to chop it up very small so it will fit in the recycling wheelie bin and now due the crisis the 'green' bin collection has been cancelled so I'm wondering if I can burn the rest without annoying the neighbours ? .
The present flock , they have just started laying again - they like the nice weather as much as us . They are incredibly untidy creatures and if let loose in a garden will wreak havoc , I've been throwing all the weeds and grass into their run as I'm tidying the garden and they love scratching about in it - but scatter it everywhere .
