Today the dogs and I went to a place where the ground is so saturated, you can jump up and down on it so that it wobbles like a water bed. Enjoying myself like a child I did it quite violently and found that bubbles came spewing out of various places, driving the dogs mad. I filmed it on my phone. Apologies for wobbliness.
I am now going to give you a rather lot of bird photos as I found my editing skills lacking tonight. I could watch them all day, starting with the Robin:
Sparrow doing a Parrot impression:
Over the weekend, we booked our little holiday in Scotland in May. OB and I will fly up as he's desperate to go on a plane. He said that his class was once asked who had been on a plane and he was the only one who didn't raise his hand, so, after much saving, we're putting that right. M (who doesn't fly), will drive up with the dogs, the canoe and the luggage. I can't wait. We haven't been away for more than a few days since 2010. When I had my accident in 2011, it was two days before we were meant to be going to Cornwall for a week. Very bad timing.
Yesterday morning was really sunny and I took this picture of one of our neighbours' gorgeous cats. I really liked the curl of the bench and the planks of the stable behind. This cat has no tail. Can't remember why not; he's not a Manx.
The dogs and I had a lovely walk after breakfast:
It was really windy as you can see from Snippet's fur:
Half term is over and I shall be more free to visit others' blogs. OB's social whirl is all consuming. It's his birthday in a couple of weeks and one of the things he's written on his list of things he'd like is a flight simulator. He looked very put out when I burst out laughing. This year, he will be a decade old and two months later, I will hit half a century. Two milestones. He'll be getting a new bike if he's lucky.
Until next time, hope you had a good weekend and here are those dogs having one of their play fights. They look pretty serious to me but it's really nothing like a real fight having unfortunately seen Snippet have a couple of them. Hope your week has had a good start.
