Wednesday 13th

Dull nd distinctly chilly. My little birds have still not returned to the garden. I'm getting worried about my sparrows!
My husband planted the last of the daffodil bulbs today. He has made a lovely garden trough for them using the old wooden headboard & frame  from our bed.
Nothing like a bit of inventive re-cycling!

There will be a bit of a break in the diary as I am off to Nottingham for the New Writer's Book Fayre, won't be back until Monday.

see ya then!


12th October

The wind is cold today. Bright & sunny, but there's a draught coming from somewhere. Time to get the long fluffy socks out I think!

(they are bright coloured & I wear them when sitting at my desk. Cosy & comfy.)


11th October

Weekend at Battle Abbey for the re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings Event.

Saturday morning: An early mist shrouded the little town of Battle, streamers of mist weaving in and out of the towers of the Abbey Gatehouse (right opposite my hotel window) Dawn was at about 7 ish?

Walking down to the field at about 10 a.m the mist had cleared and a bright, strong sun had come up. The air smelt of damp grass and earth & the smoke of campfires (from the living history encampment)
By afternoon is had become very hot - but suddenly turned cold at about 4.15 - then the mist returned.
Sunday was very similar, although the morning mist was not so heavy.

I could hear seagulls every so often, and there was a faint tang of the sea in the air. Battle is only 7 miles from Hastings, after all.
