Computer came back, fixed, (?), started to add some programmes, and then it died again. After much swearing, I rang the ‘good doctor’, and he took the patient away again.
So, next week, a mended, and virgin computer. (With any luck.). I’ll contain my excitement till I’ve had it a few days without problems. So, I’m all behind on visits, comments and posts; but I’ll eventually catch up.
In between work, dodging showers, and sorting out various backed up files, I’ve had a handsome visitor to the garden. He’s become quite a regular this week, announcing his arrival with a hearty ‘pink!’
Mr. Chaffinch, in all his feathered finery. He started to arrive late in the day, about 8 p.m., but has now decided that with all the available food around, he’ll come early till late.
And he brings a couple of the kids along too.
Sometimes one, sometimes two. It’s a real treat to watch, as they follow dad around, feeding themselves, and sometimes waiting for dad to feed them. He’s not too fussed where he feeds either; sometimes from the trays on the feeders, and other times quite happy to forage in the grass, picking up what’s been dropped by the messy Starlings.
