Any minute now there'll be questions asked about the whereabouts of today's blog ... and it is almost time for my one bit of television watching in the week! "New Tricks" in half an hour.
Why do I like it so much ... ? Police murder mystery always appeals, the actors are good ... do I need to find any other reason?
"Face to face with a carapace race"! The giant (over four foot long) cast iron turtles really should be set as stepping stones in a lawn ... but I think they're too special for that so they've been located on the carpet ever since the Christmas when I was given them. Here they're on a table cloth and the footprints belong to Eliot!
I did put the cloth on the hall floor and while lying down to get a good angle the dog decided to try to lick my face! He'd been outside earlier so muddy footprints are the result. I'd not planned to wash the cloth but now I'm going to have to do that.
"Bye bye blackbird" when he read how Eliot had just chased one of them out of the garden and was watching the beech tree very carefully in case it decided to return!
Monday is my lunchtime in Saint Nicholas and the inscription on this book rest caught my eye. It was presented by the Sunday School teachers in January 1901 ... just days before the church was dedicated. Wouldn't you love to know how they felt at the prospect of a brand new and very impressive church?
Now, coffee and "New Tricks" and then an early night.
