When I switched on my phone this morning there was an ultrasound photo of Baby, sent by Becky, what a smashing start to the day. All is well with Mum and Baby which is very good to know.
I set off soon after breakfast to walk to the Health Centre to pick up the vaccination details I was having a rant about yesterday. I took my litter picking equipment so that I could do some on the way home and managed a bagful! Folks seem to toss most things out of their car windows: fast food detritus; bottles; cigarette packets; bits of clothing; poo bags; assorted plastic bits......
Back home the wind is playing havoc with our plants in pots and window boxes, so I gave them all a good watering whilst Tony had the less pleasant job of cleaning the wheelie bin. I took some photos on my plant identification app of the different leaves appearing in the mini meadow - think these must be the bi-ennials which we will hopefully enjoy next summer. The app identified them as: milfoil; plantain and verbascum. We have lots of the verbascum which is good as they are bee friendly.
After that I practised on my recorder. I wish I knew more about music because some of the music in my new book appear to use notes I do not recognise and cannot find the fingering for (!) I can see all you musical folks smiling!
I think it may be fish and chips for tea tonight as Tony is still shackled to the computer and I don't feel much like cooking.
The blue and great tits have been visiting the feeders all day. They do well to fly in this gusty wind we are experiencing.
