Latest venture? I hear you muse, well if you had been paying attention at the back there, you would know that I have recently had one of those 'light bulb' moments and come up with the idea of 'Blog Walking' and this weekend I have started the ball rolling with a new blog called funnily enough 'Blog Walking' ta daa. True tis very much a work in progress but at least the first step has been taken and hopefully the adventures will be in full swing shortly. The link to 'Blog Walking' is to be found HERE and I really hope that some of you will come along for the ride.
Now some of you may remember that the pictures from my first wildlife garden post here couldn't help to show my
..... I'm embarrassed to say that the inside there lurks a far different story with just getting inside the damn thing being a major achievement....
So this morning was spent tidying and organising the space within. I now have a usable work surface and once I appropriate some suitable M12 bolts it will also have a rather spiffing four inch engineers vice attached to it. Still a mountain of sorting to be done but at least I can start on the ever growing list of chores to be done.
I also managed to take the terrible twosome out for a walk along the country lanes of the village with my primary objective to find a tree to follow as suggested on Lucy's wonderful Loose and Leafy blog to be found here. Unfortunately the twosome lived up to their terrible suffix and whilst we were negotiating a rather muddy and slippy downhill stretch of path they decided to both pull together whereas me weakened knees (have I mention them before?) promptly gave way and I ended up sprawled on my arse with the little buggers jumping all over me thinking 'what fun', little bastards! Not only that but later Nelly gave me a heart attack by disappearing for a goodly ten minutes or so and I could only breath again when firstly I spied two rabbits hurtling across a field followed, I would like to say closely to spare her blushes, followed at some distance but stubbornly by a tongue lolling Beagle. But the walk was not a complete disaster and the use of Anglo Saxon had a brief respite when I came across this....

|His twisted roots delving deep and shredding a stone wall to pieces|
This old fellow is full of character and I shall enjoy finding out more about him as the year unfolds, firstly what he is! My first thoughts was Sycamore then Horse Chestnut but I shall have to brush up and let you know, all part of learning and being 'out there' though.
Eventually safely home where I had to take some painkillers as my left knee was really in danger of me amputating it to relieve the aching! Fed the terrible twosome, got the evening meal underway and settled down with an extremely large hot cup of tea to chill and tell you of my adventures. Oh and what of the terrible twosome?....
