Sunday 20 September 2020


 Good morning, everyone.  How's your weekend going.  I'm having a very pleasant time here at Dad's, as always.  The sun is shining - well, not right now, but it has been and will be - his garden is still producing and the squirrels are going nuts for nuts in the back garden.  Letchworth has a very rare colony of black squirrels, based on Norton Common which is only five to ten minutes' walk away from here, and they visit the garden every day.

Yesterday was quiet and pleasant.  I was up early and pottered around before Dad came down and the day started.  There's nothing to report, it was a restful day.

Today looks like being exactly the same.  Dad has his days organised so that there's very little to do, just the occasional bit of washing or mending or maybe a bit of clearing out.  

Things will be back to normal tomorrow so I'm going to make the most of the gentleness of today while I can.  I hope your day is just as satisfactory!  xx


  1. I hope my day is as gentle as yours Joy . We are going for a short trip up into the mountains to breathe and blow some cobwebs away. Enjoy your Sunday with your Dad. I don't think I have ever seen a black squirrel. :-) Amanda x

    1. A trip into the mountains sounds absolutely wonderful. Have a lovely and refreshing time.

    2. I've never seen a black squirrel either. Will you accept the challenge of trying to photograph them please? xx

    3. I doubt I'll catch one this visit but, yes, I'll give it a go next time I'm here. xx

  2. I need to do some mending, too. You sound relaxed and comfortable. We have a lot of grey squirrels with bushy tails up in the mountains. I have never seen the black ones...

  3. Gosh I didn't even realise there was such a thing as black squirrels, that's my new thing learnt today :-)
