After two days hard work by the joiner, this evening I have new fencing and new gates shutting off the back garden from the front. Once I have checked all side exits through next door's fencing on both sides, I shall be able to let my dog out into the back garden for a wander without the fear of her getting out. This is my last big job on the bungalow and it is completed - a great relief, now I can relax.
Our walk first thing this morning took in a row of flowering currant bushes in absolute full bloom and almost every bloom had a bumble bee on it. At last signs of Spring are arriving and the sun came out to verify it.
As I have visitors coming to stay fr a few days next week I have done several major (for me) cleaning jobs - I cleaned all the inside windows (the window cleaner did them outside last week).
I washed out the kitchen cupboards and then - hardest job of all - put on a clean duvet cover!
I am saddened to read that John is hoping to leave Trelawnyd - I have enjoyed the life of the village for so long that I feel part of it. Wherever he and the Prof move to I do hope John continues to regale us with the doings and the goings on in the area. Knowing what a lovely, friendly and helpful man he is he will certainly be a great asset to any community who are lucky enough to get him and the Prof in their midst.
Just a footnote. Did anyone else see the clip on Breakfast T V this morning of the mother gorilla kissing her newborn baby? It was utterly delightful. Don't let anyone ever tell me that animals don't feel love.
