It’s a very similar start to the day as yesterday with virtually zero sun although we are promised to get it back as the day goes on and the temperatures are going to rise quite a bit.
Didn’t seem to get too much done last night at home, spending most of my time in the shed putting the hedge trimmer back together so we can get going again with wall ivy and other such stuff.
After doing a little more research, we have settled on looking at hiring a power scythe to clear swathes of the brambles and such from various areas of the plot.
Sat here from around 6:30am this morning, do the usual stuff, feeding chickens, doing a few emails, typing this and eating breakfast when, literally about 20ft outside the kitchen window on the raise path at the back of the house, Mr Fox decided to parade in full view and actually strutting. It seems ages since we’ve seen one as the baby rabbits I guess have been bountiful. As they grow I suspect they are a little too mobile for him to catch and that has probably made him a little braver? Of course I am now in fear for my chickens although he was quite a way from them. I managed to get out of the conservatory door and making a din sent him racing through the trees under the fence and out into the field. If I can convince him there is regular habitation here that may help keep the livestock alive! He can have as many rabbits as he wants, but chickens, that’s another story.
It’s a new experience for both World Cup finalists as Spain beat Germany and go on to play Holland on Sunday. Not sure that’s a perfect final but at least it’s all European.
On this day in history and last year… Today one year ago, Saints got taken over.
