Ok, here is the first proper post of the renewal of my blog. Don’t worry, all you hordes of readers. There’ll be nothing erudite in it. (Apart from the word erudite).

REPORT ON THE DAY.

Had to get up at 7am as my birding group were going to Sewerby today. And I didn’t get to bed until 1am as I was catching up with months and months of news. The morning at Sewerby was absolutely wonderful. We saw a hooded crow. I think I’ve seen them before, maybe in Ireland or Scotland, but it was a great sight. Also, sweet little goldcrests. And the weather was SO WARM. At lunch time we five ladies sat at a bench and had our lunch. The men went off to Bempton, as apparently the gannets, puffins etc. are back. I was going to go after my lunch but the weather suddenly turned so I went home. On the way home I had to stop in a layby as I was falling asleep. I dropped off for about ten minutes, and it was just what I needed.

Afternoon. Pottered. Also, took record photos of the entire garden, as I want to take gardening a bit more seriously. Mostly it was an eye-opener how messy it all was. Just tidying things up would make a vast improvement.

In the evening I went to the Ash Wednesday Mass. Loads of ashes on my forehead.

Afterward had mushroom omelette and a few chips (made from a large baking  potato and we shared them). Banana, Watched an old Taggart, fiddled with photos and this blog.

For Lent I am  going to get rid of one (or hopefully two) items per day. I know you shouldn’t say what you’re doing, but Barbara posted it on FB for all to see. I am also doing  other things which Barbara doesn’t know about.
