I feel I should be coming up with a really good excuse like my dog ate my sewing and then a dinosaur travelled through time and ate the dog...but the truth - short version is: walking to and from work because of the snow has wiped me out. Low iron, precarious health and walking a 2 mile plus round trip is not conducive with good health and the ability to stay awake for very long. It's frustrating because I enjoyed my walks in the snow. Just not the exhaustion that went with them. Especially since this year I bought some snow boots online in a sale. One of my few 2013 purchases and worth every penny. And on Monday I took a point and shoot camera with me and managed to get some lovely birdie shots on my way home - thanks to a Fieldfare that decided it was more interested in berries a foot away from me, than worried about me and my camera.
I did get sent some lovely flowers from Chief. That was surprise as he'd already admitted he hadn't got me a card and I'd have to have one late.
I actually had a lovely present from a friend and fellow blogger. However, the pictures of it so far are rubbish and don't do it justice so I'll save that for another blog post.
And in case you hadn't see enough birds around her of late here are some more.
We've had a lot of pheasant visitors in the garden of late. Although it was quite a surprise to see this fellow walking along the top of the 6ft fence that divides my garden from my neighbours!
I was amazed I got this shot. I felt rubbish. I was stood in my kitchen a good distance away from this birdie and took the picture in a snow storm through the kitchen window, which is not only leaded but dirty! The birdie, in case you didn't know, is a little owl and this is one of it's favourite sitting places. It looks quite fat here because it's all puffed up against the cold.
So I've done better on the birdie front than the sewing front. But we're nearing another weekend and now Chief has a stinking cold it's unlikely I'll see him on Saturday as planned. I may just get to sew! I'm worried I may never want to sew again!
