Yesterday, Jim and I sat in the sun room with a cup of tea and watched the birds flying about
n the orchard. We saw a pair of tree creepers hopping up adjacent trees, picking insects from between the ivy stalks. A robin and blackbird entertained us and lots of chaffinches. It's ages since we've actually sat and watched the birds and we really enjoyed it.
Jim was up early this morning to go and teach at the computer class. He had a good time and delighted the lady he was teaching by finding her children on Facebook!
Martin the Builder came early with the skirting boards and other wood and waited until Anthony the carpenter turned up. The weather was really awful and it has rained hard on and off all day. Anthony managed to get some of the door surrounds done but then had to go. He is actually having an operation on his nose tomorrow and I think he was a bit nervous. He had parked his van on the road down to our grumpy neighbours and they drove up the road, beeping all the way and told him he mustn't park there. Excuse me, it's OUR road!! He just pulled in a bit but left the van there. They are such a pain.
I have felt sick and nervous all day and I'm sure it's because of them. Grrrrr.
I have been busy making Christmas cards, some collages and others in a different style. I'm quite pleased with them but have had to order some more blanks before I can continue.
Yesterday evening the cats and dog were playing 'Who can get closest to the fire', on the rug. Jim took some photos and I took some, as each time we looked, they were in a different position. Do bear with me while I post them as there are a few!!
I couldn't stop laughing at Sandy's legs - they look like chicken drumsticks!!
Sandy stretching his paws at both ends!
Just look at those feet and legs!!
Now Sandy rests his legs on Buster's head!
A close up, Buster looking a bit worried as usual.
If you look carefully in this one, you can see Sandy's tongue as he decided to give Buster a wash!
Sandy's tongue is a bit clearer here!
Sandy gradually getting closer!
Where've you gone?' says Buster
More Head rubbing!
BlackJack, Buster and Sandy
Buster always looks slightly bothered and Sandy doesn't care one bit!!
This morning my 'Z' arrived. It is the last letter of the Artist Trading Cards Alphabet we, a group of ten, have been collecting and this completes my set. I will photograph it on Friday and post the whole alphabet. I can't wait to see everyone else's too.
This is from Laure and she has done the whole alphabet in this style of letters. They are all superb.
I am off to the UK at 4.30am, so I must go to bed soon. It's a quick trip this time, and I'm back on Thursday at about midnight. Off to see Jason, Sam, Jack and Kitty so you can have some photos which are not animals for a change!!
Take care everyone.
