It seems that as I try to cram some more information into my brain (rearranged fixtures/cup final matches/gymnastic schedules/sixth form entry proceedures etc etc) some of the stuff that was in my brain falls out. I think it stands to reason that as you push more info in, some of the other stuff falls out - that's normal isn't it?
Number 1 son has had his 2 induction days at sixth form college; he then pointed out to me that he was exhausted "you don't know what it's like, I've been at a desk all day trying to take in a lot of information" (Thats 2 days out of the last 14) Oh no, I have no idea!! I of course have short days, doing nothing but lay around watching tv!
Of course the "day " in question was 9am til 3pm!! Well, you would be exhausted, wouldn't you?
Number 2 son had his usual week at school, cricket, more cricket and then a little extra cricket!
But onto the wildlife. I staggered out of bed last Sunday, very bleary eyed and not quite awake to be hit by this
not sure who jumped most, the bird or me!
I somehow managed to chase him around the house and up stairs where he left through the bathroom window! He'd obviously been inside all night and we haven't yet found any bird poop!!
Outside there have been plenty of birds on the feeder, lots of bullfinches which are so pretty.
I'm sorry it's a really poor photo, I've been trying hard to get a picture when there are 3 or 4 birds on there together but they're not very brave and disappear as soon as they see movement at the window. Underneath the bird feeder we've had a little more wildlife in the shape of this little chap
and his family -so cute! You'll have to look closely I'm afraid.
And finally, before I dash of to organise this weekends "whites" and associated maps/picnics/flasks of coffee//bats/balls/tank of fuel, here are our new babies!
I discovered a swallows nest in the eaves of our shed a little while ago
Then we had a clutch of eggs
Not the easiest to photograph, I'll be brushing the cobwebs out of my hair later!
And in the last few days the babies arrived and mum & dad are very busy swooping in and out of the shed (we never shut the door, in the hope that someone will steal all the junk!)
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
