up and running. the pump's still a problem but it's lovely to hear the water just spraying onto the lawn.
and STEEL SCADDINGS (oh, that name) has been and cut the lawn so everything's smelling of new mown grass.
Pelicans are gliding down the river past the house and my magpie family is running about on the newly cut lawn finding lots to eat - all wonderful. i was sitting watching the magpies when all of a sudden (i love that phrase - 'all of a sudden') one of those rotten cats crept out from under the house towards the young one.
|the baby of the family|
|the other one, a black backed magpie|
when i was little some of my nick names were annie oakley and 'annie get your gun'.
i can tell you if i knew how to use a gun i'd be popping those cats, but i'll just have to
leave it up to someone else. but they've got to go.
|DON'T TURN YOUR BACKS ON THAT CAT GUYS!!|
|this very cute little boat chugged by this afternoon|
|the river this evening - it's been beautiful still autumn weather, very warm but lovely|
