Just about over the shock of the whatever it was that made me vomit. It hasn't recurred thank goodness.
So I was off to the Prom whatever the weather!
Another bright sunny day although more windy. Temperature is above freezing now. Long may it last.
The tide is well out at the moment when I go so lots of sea birds out on the sand preening feathers, into the water for a bath, and then dry off and sleep, with one eye open of course, and on one leg for many. Keeping the other one warm.
Oyster Catchers at the top. Herring Gulls at the bottom.
Home and into the shedudio for the RSPB Garden Birdwatch. You have to choose an hour and count the birds that come into the garden. Well this happens every year. Normally we have loads of birds in our garden but as soon as the hour chosen begins..... zilch. Or very few.
Within minutes of the hour being up..
The last couple of evenings there has been a strong smell of burning wood. We know we are not being poisoned as we have a carbon monoxide alert thing, but the smell was quite overpowering. So today the DP went and got the bits to replace the seal round the wood burning stove door. Fixed. He was muttering about something being wrong with the flue til I reminded him he had replaced the door seal before, quite a few years ago. And that just before Christmas the flue was swept and cleaned and the cowl on the top. He was quite proud of himself at having fixed the smell after all. Ah.
Now do I do the Garden Bird Watch again tomorrow, and leave it til the hour after I watched today? Or not.
