I took these photos the night before the camera 'died' and didn't have time to post them on here. So for those of you suffering from photo deprivation (me included) here they are.
Just after midnight, Pat happened to see out of the corner of his eye something very little running.
We have a security night light which comes on at dusk and goes out at dawn, so we are often lucky enough to see visitors.
This one was a tiny baby hedgehog. This one was very active and healthy - if you see any hedgehog about in daylight it will always be ill despite the fact that it might be moving around.
This photo and the following one was taken when it was out of the light, so I just had to aim my camera into the pitch black and hope that it captured his image.
I took 12 photos and got three with him in them! The others are lovely pictures of sad looking lawn - which has now recovered after the rain the other day.
We are spring cleaning out little bungalow today - which is a total waste of time as it will get messed up tomorrow - but we like to do it anyway for our sake not theirs!
I just love the fresh clean smell after I have washed everything down - only do that once a month mind you - other times it is a quick dust once a week and Pat does the vacuuming as my poor old back won't let me.
Just off to make my second loaf of the day, a white one for the little people who are used to sliced white bread, but I refuse to buy it. So it is home made and home sliced!
Been busy making three more flower arrangement for my floral patchwork - but have run out of time as lots more baking nd preparation to do. No the royal family are not visiting, but I do like to make a special effort for my visitors, whoever they are.
I am looking forward to having a bit of female company in the home, and 'playing' at arty crafty things, and supervising their cooking. There is also the menus that I have got them to plan, as I told the girls that they could cook for the days they are here, recipes from the River Cottage Family Cookbook that I bought my grand daughter. The only thing I know that they want to do is a chocolate cake. Maybe I should have mentioned that we eat meat and veggies too LOL
