Woo, go me, I did 3.5 miles non stop (sort of) this morning! Hee hee, I always say "sort of" don't I? Only a few seconds though to take pics of horses and invisible squirrels. I don't have time to write a proper blog at the mo as Gary's coming round to help with stage two of the garden in a bit so I'll update later and post pics. Hope I can think of something to say. There were the two female runners who smiled at me, that was nice, better than the usual miserable gits and the strange man asleep in a car. Oh yes and the ducks. I have a pic of the ducks. It was very sunny too and it's only 9:30am so it's going to get hotter and I'm going to get sunburnt again doing the garden but at least I'll earn me some more calories to eat and drink tonight as my diet's going to be ruined later but I have lost 3 lbs this week, hopefully all off my belly.

Right, Gary's running late so here are today's pics:

'tis a horse. But you probably knew that.

And here's another horse.  It looks like the same horse but it's not, honest.

And here's some ducks. Well, maybe not some, just two. There were some more but they're not in this pic. Obviously.

There was also a squirrel but he ran away before I could take his pic.  I was going to take a pic of the man asleep in a car but thought I might get in trouble if I do that.  Maybe his wife kicked him out.  Heh heh.

  • How’s the sunburn? it was really hot up this way yesterday 😛 Hope that the garden turned out ok – look forward to the picture updates.


  • Looks like the garden’s coming on well. I’m a bit of a wildlife nerd as well as a computer geek so thought I’d let you know that other people call your ducks Canadian Geese, and very nice they are too. Keep up the photos.

    Sorry, SpringWatch has obviously got to me.

  • Thanks Pamela, I thought they might be geese, I think they’re nice too, we usually get a different type of wildlife around here 🙂
