Lovely sunny start again and the garden looks fab from my perch on the sofa. Doesn't do to get too close tho as I haven't weeded or dead headed for ages and the bloody bindweed is spreading alarmingly in new places well away from the original infestation. How does that work? Not fair.
Carrying on with packing today - clothes and the last bits of attic. Have the new owners coming round at 2ish for a central heating driving lesson and another chappy coming to take away stuff we don't want but which can probably be sold for charity.
Clari - enjoy your walk. I hope you're wearing a mask when you bash plaster.
Chicky - enjoy Picton. We did.
We have Egyptian geese thriving here and Canada geese that do seasonal fly pasts. There's a large flock of them parked in the paddock across the road and they've been doing a morning and evening fly past for a few days now. We had 3 large white egrets in the back field the other day - very early so maybe hiding from those storms that went north and south but passed us by and left us dry?
Just had a robin in the living room. Much panicking as I went round opening windows he couldn't see he could escape through. Talk about bird brain! Droppings on the window sills and a very large, top heavy ficus benjamina tumbly tumbly in the breeze. Wonderful.
