Still here; and loving it.
Thank you to everyone who's posted comments, and when I get back to my own internet I'll catch up with everyone.
Phone signal and sometimes net connection can be sporadic, but I'll persevere with this update.
I sadly lost one of my cousins a few days ago; heart failure. She was just a couple of years older than me, and it came as quite a shock.
Jim gave me a scare too. First he was limping heavily on a front leg, then a few days later became very lethargic, wouldn't eat, and was violently sick...............I had visions of another bout of pancreas trouble; or worse. Also his friend, Bud, started limping on one of his back legs.
He's a little dog that loves to explore the surrounding area, and every nook and cranny.
A trip to the local vet was in order.
Pills for Bud, an examination and injection for Jim, and that was it.
(sadly I took up the wrong employment vocation when I was younger)
Bud is improving, Jim seems a bit better, but still off his food for most of the time.
So, back to here.
Had some rain, some wind, and some sun; but it hasn't stopped me travelling the surrounding area, in search of birds.
As well as the usual garden visitors,
a few surprises too.
Pied Flycatcher, female
That's it for now, and a few more days here, so from Jim and myself, hope everyone is having a great time, and enjoying the 'moments'.
So until I get back, I'll leave you with a view from the cottage.
(hmmm, with all this, do I really want to get back to MK)
