  1. what is everyone doing?

    Yes squirrels are very athletic aren't they, fascinating watching the different ways they manage to find of getting at the bird feeders, I've long given up trying to deter the ones in our garden, and now their separate feeder is broken I can't really stop them from feeding off the other feeders (which they did anyway). Much cooler here too after a lovely Saturday, and also much wetter!

  4. what is everyone doing?

    I have the same problem with squirrels, they ate nearly all my allium bulbs a couple of years ago, and loads of freesias another time, and tulips too. There's not much they don't like! have a couple of birthdays at work so a serious amount of chocolate has been brought in, well it is Friday!
  5. what is everyone doing?

    No it's not quite the heatwave they promised is it! Still nice though.
  6. what is everyone doing?

    I've got a bit of a cold too, started with a sore throat on Friday, it's not too bad, just a bit sniffly but it's so changeable, cold in the morning then warmish, then cold again!
  7. National Bookshop Day 2018

    I didn't know about Nat Bookshop Day either, I went into my local Waterstone's and they didn't have anything on to show that it was a "special" day!
  8. what is everyone doing?

    I live in London too and don't really like walking there, although we have done a few interesting walks and been to a few places I might not normally have visited - Greenwich is lovely, have you been there? Luckily we're only about 20 minutes or so from forest. We've also occasionally accidentally wandered onto private land but not had any trouble so far! That was nice of them to show you their animals.
  9. what is everyone doing?

    I do that too, pens as well.

    Everything she wants - Wham!
  11. What are you watching on TV?

    Finally finished Outlander (2nd series), and managed to watch the first two episodes of Discovery of Witches, enjoying it so far and Oxford looks gorgeous!
  12. what is everyone doing?

    It was lovely at the weekend, bit chilly but sunny, managed a forest walk yesterday morning which was glorious, even saw a few deer.
  13. What are you watching on TV?

    I'm afraid I'm not engaging with Strangers at all, it's just not gripping, or even interesting, me. Quite enjoying Vanity Fair, though I agree some of the modern dialogue does jar, especially when he called Becky "babes" the other week, please! But I like the opening bit, with Michael Palin as Thackeray doing the update of the story so far.
  14. books from our childhoods

    Lots of Enid Blyton - Famous 5, Adventure books Paddington The Secret Garden Mary Plain (a Swiss bear, a sort of female Paddington!) Nancy Drew
  15. what is everyone doing?

    Well done, I passed second time and also felt I messed something up, think it was the emergency stop, we didn't have the theory test in my day. And good luck in the new job too.
