Ticking Over

Cherie - no evidence of any remains yet, but I'm worried. Fortunately, I think that they're mainly launching themselves from that fuchsia which is only a few yards from the window, so they can't get up much speed. The sparrows, blue tits and coal tits whizz around at such speed, though.

Eileen - thank you for your lovely comment. I feel completely hugged. I really appreciate your support and encouragement with this. The first in the series is here and there will eventually be six parts, published at fortnightly intervals. I really enjoyed writing them. I am so unused to conversations that they now tire me out. I think I should get back into practice.

Bless - thank you! I've had a quick look online and hanging things in the window can help. However I don't think DH would like that (I'm not sure that I would). I shall have to think of something, though.

I'm not sure what happened to today. I don't seem to have done much. I did the school run, of course, and sorted out food for everyone. I finished off this week's flash fiction and I got some washing done. I took bear to the Climbing Depot, and I was impressed that he went as he quick naps not only on the way into school but also on the way home. 

I took some pics of the white rose today for a change. I really need to get going in the garden, especially with deadheading the roses. I'm leaving the honeysuckle as the birds get the berries, but the roses really need it. The rose is really flourishing, and there are a lot of buds coming. Unfortunately it's not very scented.

Writing stuff - This week's flash fiction is here

Hugs and good health to all. 


  1. I think you did plenty, today, writing, taking Bear places, sorting meals, doing the washing, etc. It all takes time, as I am finding out!

  2. Thanks for the link. It's another excellent piece of writing, very well thought out and again, your style of writings makes it easy to read. It's very much that you are talking to the reader rather than the reader ploughing through words on the page.

  3. Beautiful rose photos! Sounds like you got quite a lot done!
