A trip into Exeter on the day before Christmas Eve day wasn't on the plan but we realised that we needed one more present for a nephew that is visiting. Fortunately it was a quick trip into the centre before the shops were too busy. We found the present and then realised we could get a similar item for our son and son-in-law, so it was a good move. We came across a small stall concerned with looking after Raptors where three owls were on display, one of which was enormous. I chose this rather cute Barn Owl for today's blip.
Both our son and daughter arrived later today. He drove all the way and is unfortunately suffering from a cold. That always seems to happen when you are working as soon as you stop around Christmas you come down with a cold. At least he can put his feet up and be looked after for awhile.
