Thrashing Back Nettles

Today reminded me of how hard life must of been, pre-industrial revolution. Manually thrashing back the nettles soon brought out blisters and made my arms ache. How people did it in fields to harvest crops from dawn to dusk makes you realise how easy we have it today.

Myself, Mick and Chris today and we cleared the sides of the path between the picnic clearing and new underpass.

Good day today and we avoided the rain, which was a bonus.

Shorter workday next week because I have an appointment late morning, so will be finishing at 10.
