And that was what happened. I got stuck on the phone, noticed her exploring the front drive, went to see if she'd come back in and her saucer was empty. But when I opened the front door to go to the freezer she was just passing. Came in looking surprised and I shut all the doors. If it's warm tomorr...
Well, that went to plan didn't it! No it didn't. She's been here 5 weeks and spending a lot of time looking out of the window. And always appears whenever i go into the kitchen to make breakfast and dinner (and hopefully at other times I go into the kitchen). She has dry food down all the time but g...
I did start to watch it but the loud background music got on my nerves so turned to something else. That really annoys me too. Wouldn't be beyond them to put background music on a different channel, like stereo, so that you could turn it down or off. No good if your hearing isn't perfect, just dist...
I used to get frustrated at blackbirds when i grew strawberries. Having to cut the net to untangle them. I get lots of them in winter + fieldfares & other thrushes, eating my windfalls.

Yes, Spring has taken me by surprise too. Get out and enjoy it, the hard work but the Standing and Staring too. Does your home-working let you choose your own time or must you be at your desk for most of the daylight hours?
Like LL I couldn't resist veg growing. Just put some seed potatoes to chit, and started digging over the patch - still very claggy so not east to weed. Things were drying out a bit, but we had 2 days rain last week and the bottom of the garden is a bog again. Contractors from Scottish Power came to ...
The full implications of having the vaxx will not emerge until six months, a year, or two years down the line. I ilona That is true about most things we do. And for many things we never know because life is not an experiment where you control all variables except the one you are testing. I also fee...
