Coming out of hibernation
The weather and the festivities kept us inside over Christmas and Boxing Day , but now it's time to venture outside and try to walk off some of the roast potatoes. We took a flask of tea and some brownies to the bird reserve on the edge of our village and fished with sticks on our way to the big hide that looks out over the reedbed.
Obviously we didn't see many birds, walking with two loud galumphers, but we saw a bridge being renovated,
and we saw some huge skies, and , as usual, vowed that we should come back more frequently. It is a wonderful place.
Returning home, it was time to write Thank you letters.
How come everyone here receives presents but only one of us ever writes the letters? OK, at least two of them can't write very well, so I suppose I should just be grateful they sign their own names ...
