Wednesday 13th to Sunday 17th February

Wednesday

I didn’t go to Ranby on Wednesday: it was the next Monday! I’m retired & live on my own so I totally lose track of the days.

Anyhow round the pond and down to town. It was bloody cold and beginning to snow.

Thursday

Birds are singing, there’s blackbirds and robins everywhere; bushes full of sparrows and little flocks of tits. The grebes are even beginning to make a nest!

  1. More brilliant robins. What little show offs they are,
    And if there’s catkins, spring’s on it’s way. Which is good, because it’s white over again here, and I’m spending toomuch time pouring boiling water over frozen condensate pipes to make the boiler work.
