Hello, and it is a very sunny Sunday, though a bit chilly. We’ve been for our first walk of the day and got caught in an icy shower. That rain was freezing, but luckily didn’t come to much so we didn’t get that wet.
We avoided the one end of the lake as there was a large group of people feeding the ducks. Still no sign, or sound, of Geraldine, though we did see a similar duck on our travels yesterday, so maybe she was only visiting here afterall. To be honest, there are not that many ducks here just now, and where they’ve cut back a lot of the shrubbery on the island, we can only see a few geese on nests. The council have probably raided the eggs again to keep numbers down.

Other than that and two people walking on the opposite side of the lake when we entered the park, we haven’t seen anyone. Well, not including our furry lodger to be who ambled up the drive to say hello. Our friend still hasn’t been given a date for her op yet, but we are all ready when the time comes and I’ve asked for a list of dos and don’ts as regards food and treats. We’ve already made a space for her bed in the bedroom so no problems there.
It is really weird looking outside as there is a mist blowing down the road, except it’s not mist, but steam coming off the tarmac surface which is being blown by the cold wind. There has been another couple of showers since we’ve been back, so we are glad to be home with cups of tea and biscuits. Dietwise it has been a bad week and I will have to go some to get back in target. Those chocolate hobnobs were nice though and I won’t mention the custard slice (s).
