..... And then the bloody snow
On waking this morning I was greeted with the arrival of more snow. How I hate it. But there was no telling Trix that, so out with her for a walk. She chased it,got her nose covered in it and generally bounced around in it. I muttered and moaned my way round the walk, like some demented old hag.
Then I came home, organised my chair in front of the window, got a pot of coffee and my breakfast and sat looking out of the window for an hour. Reason being is I've just taken part in the RSPB annual garden bird watch. The bird table was prepared with it's normal rations of bird seed and crushed peanuts, plus cause of the snow some juicy raisins. Then all I had to do was sit warm and snug inside and note which birds came into my garden over the period. It was a tough call sitting doing it! And more importantly an absolute pleasure, even though Trix could not understand why I was just sitting there. So now when I can finally get through I will tell the RSPB my findings and feel that I have contributed to something important countrywide
