birds and no 'leccy

The siskins returned today, two males and one female so far. All the poor birds are looking very bedraggled and fed up with this seemingly never ending rain. Our lovely new path is now covered in a sea of mud created by the rebuilding of the drystone wall. A brush and some buckets of water will fix that – once it stops raining!!

An advance warning – tomorrow (Thursday 22 November) our electricity supplier is carrying out their pre-winter line checks and maintenance which means we will be without electricity for most of the day. Back to the battery powered laptop and an old fashioned phone with a wire! We'll soldier on and hopefully you'll never notice.
