Burnbrae, Lawson It may seem a little bare but the winter garden after the autumn leaves have been gathered is a wonderous thing, green lawn that won't need mowing for ages and violets flowering in the clumps. I finished work yesterday, still can't quite believe it. I've been talking all day about the various farewell conversations I had at the office. After a long while I said to hubby "What am I going to talk about now I am retired?" to which he responded with a very straight face "That's never been a problem".
