Good morning all

We had a frost earlier -2C in the back garden, but it's all thawed now and the temp is rising.  Apparently some of you up north are going to get some storms later in the week, so batten those hatches down in plenty of time.

Our Lovely Builder is still poorly so won't be here until Wednesday, but the electrician is coming to fit an extractor fan in the bathroom, so a degree of chaos is expected here today!

.... children who haven't been taught to say 'Please' and 'Thank you'

And even worse, adults who have been taught, but just don't bother, 'because that's just the way I am'

We do it in September which I think is what is advised. 

I'd leave well alone now - they're probably prospecting for nest sites, but could also be using it as a shelter/roost in the cold weather.

I think that anti-freeze is sometimes added to those bubbling water features in the winter - stupid yes, but then there are some very stupid people about.

It is very dangerous because cats love to drink from running water!  As has been said, death from anti-freeze is a horrible death.
