Morning peeps

Glad you got a good night's sleep Joyce - as you say, makes such a difference.

Last blueberries from the early bushes this morning .....the late one looks like its a week away.  Been very pleased this yeat - MrC's netting contraption has been a success.

Looking forward to the weekend, although showers are promised.  Need to get out there and do some walking.  Seem to have got myself roped in to a 26 mile charity walk at the end of the summer - have no idea if my 27 year old feet can make it that far any more

Bon voyage Liri - enjoy Galway and the gd's

Morning early birds

Just seen a bird I didn't recognise on the feeders - too big for a wren, looks like a tiny thrush.  Got the books out and it is a baby robin 

Raining overnight here too - so blueberry picking for my morning porridge was a damp affair   But the garden will have welcomed some more moisture 

Hope the foot rights itself soon Hosta

I remember Topsy and Tim ....but only in books, and then only the one about their foggy day (think it was the sixties and pea soupers were still a thing).

Thank Mr Pat for his visa tip Pat - lovely to think people are trying to help us solve these conundrums.  New bank account set up today, which I hope will do the trick.  One of Chicklet's first calls home told us "they still have Woolworths here  but it sells food and there's no  pic'n'mix in sight" I am guessing it is something different from our old cheap and cheerful emporium

Off to watch GW

The chicklet in Nottingham has flown to Oz for a year fidget....we're still working out the practicalities .  But she'll be back - she has another year at Nottingham to finish before she gets her degree.  So more Felley Priory opportunities in 2018/19

Do you think they'll come back next year? ( the hostas, that is, the deer are ever present )
