You do realise where I live, don't you?

It was the right way up when I sent it.

Edited to add:

I just looked at the original, and it seems that it was changed by Ifranview, when I reduced it to comply with PPRuNe picture size rules.

Just returned from the Wildlife Sanctuary where we dropped off a baby squirrel. Hubs found him sitting in one of the flower beds. He was OK except for a bloody nose. We know we should have left him for Mum to round up but our cats got wind of him and Hubs was fending them off with a broom. We gathered him up and delivered him to the sanctuary. Result-one happy squirrel, two pissed off cats TRABB Animal Rescue Team (TART) triumphs again

This afternoon somebody unzipped the bottoms of several very large CBs - the lazy variety which didn't bother to produce any thunder or lightning, so they dispensed huge volumes of rain over the roof of my house. In addition the temperature dropped (as you would expect) to the extent that I needed to switch on the heating. The rain was not content to stream off my roof and down the drainpipes and took a shortcut through it instead. The result is that I now have a bright orange bucket strategically placed below the bulge in the ceiling which has a split in it and has been dripping water. I have a photo but Photobouquet isn't playing nicely at the moment.

LG, over here that baby squirrel could never be released back into the wild if it were a Grey, Reds are fine as they are the native specie.

I was scheduled to attend an outdoor event in Scotland this weekend, so I have been keeping toot on the forecasts for the location, with the result that I have cancelled the trip.

At one stage it seemed possible for Saturday but not Sunday, then it reversed before reverting to the original analysis, however it was the torrential rain overnight Friday to Saturday which meant that the venue (and the carparks) would be quagmires, regardless of the daily weather.

Meanwhile, of course, we have had a fine sunny day here (and no overnight rain).

A spend day today.

A buffday pressy for MWL for tomorrow (some wotsits for a Pandora Charm Bracelet)

Then a drive down to North Lancashire (sort of) to pick up and pay for a new (well newer) caravan.
Then of course bring it back home to order other bits on the internetty thing

Just back from a pleasant afternoon party celebrating a friend's 46th wedding anniversary. (They're a couple of years ahead of Jamie and I). Every couple consists of a Malaysian wed to an Englishman. Tomorrow the Tun Razak Research Centre in Brickendonbury has an "Open House" So we're all going mob-handed as the 'Welwyn-Hatfield Anglo-Malaysian Society'.

Around this time last year, a grey squirrel started raidng the bird feeders in my garden. I was quite unbothered at first. Even started putting a bit extra out for him.

Then he started damaging the feeders, and I progressed from chasing him off to using a low power air pistol on him. He has now wrecked four feeders and I have also seen him raiding the birds nests for eggs.

Reluctantly, I will now either trap and then shoot him (with my rifle), or just shoot him.

My previous neighbours (since left and moved away) used to encourage the grey squirrels to their bird feeders 'as they look cute'.

Fortunately, as I stated, they have moved on (and the squirrels haven't been seen since).

Mind you, it's a long time since I have seen a red squirrel in the garden.

Methinks is time for a quick pump, the convicts will still be sulking I'm sure so I'll just nudge her up.

Been a strange day, one is full of minor ailments as is known, Bronchitis, a stretched ligament in one's right shoulder, and tonight, crunching on a salad, a crown fell off.
This afternoon I went to collect the post and have notification of a registered letter from the Tax Man.

A fun week looms.

Night all.

Greetings,

Turning from grey to blue, guess a mere 31.

One slept through and feels a little better
