Life in 500 Words – Louise goes into the breech
This year, Life in 500 Words gives you the chance to tell us how you took a risk and winged it, and then let the chips fall where they may.

Carex and the Ducklings
An agronomist once told us to destroy the Carex grasslands in our Home Valley, “nuke it”, he said, “burn it then spray it then burn it again, that’ll get rid of it”, he gestured enthusiastically, “it’s rubbish, your sheep won’t eat it”.
I thanked him for his time and promptly ignored his professional advice – thank goodness I didn’t pay for it.
