Happy Christmas to all you bloggers and thank you so much for the messages you sent while I've been a.w.o.l. I have no excuses for my absence except......
while being unnaturally busy,
got myself in a tizzy!
..... and then of course, my computer finally gave up the ghost after seven years of slooooooooow, but faithful service. Not to worry, I can use the daughter's..... and so I did..... for a few days, until hers decided to join mine in the spiritual world for decrepit computers! However, I'm now sitting here in front of a lovely brand new desktop and it's fantastic. Peace and contentment once more reigns in our little household!
All your messages gave me a lovely warm buzz....... and someone even wrote a special limerick for me. Mr Bennet, I hope you wont mind me reproducing it here. ;)
I once knew a lass name of Lesley
who blogged about blooms and wee beasties
we had become email chums
she has lovely green thumbs
she's missing north-south-east and westy!
That made me grin from ear to ear and I made a promise to write a blog post by the weekend...... it was at that point my old computer decided "no more." But here I am and I hope you're all having a lovely time this Christmas Eve, however you are spending it.
At the moment, the whole of the UK..... and our little garden is covered in a thick blanket of snow. Here are some photographs I took this morning from behind the patio window in the warmth of the sitting-room.
The birds are perched on the huge poplar trees, watching and waiting for me to put out more food for them
Using the zoom lens, here they are a bit closer
Who's watching who? Robin, posing on a snow covered table on the patio
Mr Jackdaw on the same table
"Ever felt like you're being watched?" he says, moving further away to the top of the arch
* Happy Christmas everyone, enjoy yourself and take care *
