[The Life of Shaun #53] Shaun's a Mary, quite contrary, how does his garden grow?

This past Thursday, Natasha and I planned and successfully carried out a coup.  As you may remember, our complex has that most English of amenities, a private garden.  But we weren't given keys because, also very English, we're not the right class; we're renters, not owners.  As the Summer has sprang upon us with a vengeance we decided we must get a key.

So we invited the neighbor we're friendliest with, Alister, for wine.  And boy was wine had!  Six bottles split amongst three.  A nice follow-up to Natasha's and my anniversary celebration the Monday before where we had four split amongst two.  But I digress.

Anyway, expertly laid out in the middle of all this., Natasha made an off-handed comment about us not being given keys and Alister offered to get us a copy, no prodding needed!  She's a brilliant lady, my Natasha.

So we're off now to celebrate with a bottle of cold prosecco in the hot sun.  In our private garden.  Bless.

Cheers,
Shaun
