The estate agents are due on Tuesday to value our house, so today we've been sweeping away spiders' webs (and their constructors) and cleaning the detritus of a thousand fly-meals. We've always practised biological insect-control.
The garage was next. We flooded it with buckets of water and then Clare brushed the leaf-and-concrete slurry out-front where I shovelled it into bags ready for the municipal dump.
Then we took a walk in Penton Grafton to clear our heads and blow the dust off, and noticed that the harvest is in (pictured).
I have John Banville's new book, "The Infinities", to review from Amazon Vine. I knew this was a literary novel and vaguely appreciated that a major character is a mathematician. Skimming the pages, I was very surprised to see references to renormalisation, explaining the title. More later.
