HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

One of our cats used to catch moles from the meadow behind us, and bring them still squeaking through the cat flap into the conservatory to play with - once she lost one and it disappeared - we eventually found it a couple of weeks later when the rainwater gulley under the conservatory tiled floor blocked up   Moles can obviously get into very small holes 

So...Resurrected and Rebooted

A flock of redwings arrived this morning.  Definitely winter ...

 Haven't seen or heard any yet Joyce - they only come into the gardens around here when they've stripped the hedgerows around the grazing marshes ...... maybe we'll go out for a drive to the coast if we get a dry day this week ... perhaps we'll look out for a starling murmuration too ... I know where there's a regular one over the reedbeds ...

Watching David Attenborough last night I said to OH, if there is reincarnation, I want to come back as a spider monkey.  He looked at me and laughed ... apparently he can't imagine me swinging from branch to branch in the forest canopy 

Hope LB reappears soon ............

Hello all again 

Nurse took arm full of blood, did my BP which was ok, and then gave me a flu jab.  Apparently because I've got a birthday coming up I'm eligible for the pneumonia one as well, but they've run out.  I'll go back in the New Year.  

Now I'm having my first coffee of the day 

Pdoc, maybe the police will come around to see if you heard or saw anything?
