A visiting ornithologist
This little cat lives along the road. S/he was in the garden today very interested in the birds. At this point s/he was looking at me as if to say, "what are you doing in my garden?" Forgetting that it is in fact my garden. Just to remind him or her of this, two seconds later Flora had burst out of the back door and the cat made off leaving the birds in peace for just now.
Off to collect the three year old later for what will be the last sleepover for a few weeks. While she's here lots of packing, sorting, cutting back of plants, checklists, phonecalls and other such admin will be done. Yoga tonight as well. And with our fingers fingers firmly crossed against any unforeseens we'll be heading north on Thursday.
