Difficult to avoid ones partner.

The DP is sleeping in the spare room.  He has a cold.  Sneezing explosions punctuate the day.  He makes all my meals. Impossible to avoid him therefore.  I have fingers, toes and eyes crossed that I do not get a chest infection.  I have spent the winter avoiding people, cafes, shops, etc.  He blames his cold on returning to Dawn Patrolling.  Oh yeah.  I suppose the sneezing could be a reaction to almost every other field being muck spreaded.  But that doesnt cause you to groan regularly does it.

From the weather forecast this is to be the last day of wall to wall sunshine, and unseasonal heat and lack of wind.  Slight breeze today.  But just look at that sea.  And sky.  Mediterranean blue is it not.

Flat, calm, and beautiful.

Those two wind turbines you see we live at the other side of them.  We can see them from our rear windows over to our right and a fair distance.  About a mile.

To the left of the beach the Oystercatchers gather.  Not as many now.  Nesting sites are being inspected.  They like gravel.  The cemetery is a favourite spot.

Just a few.

The DP has been cleaning out our nest boxes.  I saw a Blue Tit today with a feather in its beak.  So we are just in time.  Although one of the Sparrow nest boxes needs replacing.  Tomorrow.

Thinking positive while avoiding ones partner.

Oh - and taking the medicine.

I've got my fingers crossed for you Jill. I dread Tom getting a cold and the family do not visit if they have one. This cold is particularly unpleasant and most people have succumbed to it. Let's hope the dp gets over it quickly.

Hope you don't catch that cold. Spring is around the corner. Let's hope it gets here sooner than later. Living here in the Midwest our winters can last till the end of April!
I love that medicine you have in the bottle!

Also fingers crossed that you avoid any infection. Beautiful blue sea - our world is still a uniform white!

It is hard to avoid when it is so close to home - keeping everything crossed for you. The medicine should help!! We are just back from Scotland - it was heavenly up there - would have satyed on but have to collect mum for a visit -it seems to come around quickly these days but my sister needs a break.
Hope DP is better soon.

Your sense of humor is wonderful.

Hop DP is feeling better and that you are alright. Such a beautiful day with the stunning blue skies and sea.

I hope that you can avoid the DP's cold. I think your choice of medicine is excellent though!!

Am musing about Oystercatchers nesting in the cemetery now!!

Those blue skies and seas really didn't look Scottish but from much warmer climes.
