Duolingo send me an email reminder to do some Italian every day. Someone there also has a sense of humour - at the end of the first lesson they tell me I'm 1% fluent in Italian! (Does that mean at the end of 100 days I'll be 100% fluent I wonder?)
The garden is such a lot of work, sometimes against the odds it seems, but then you have a sunny evening meal sitting looking at it, and it all seems worth it. Perfect indeed.
I hope you've had a lovely day.
