I have reformatted the camera and it seems fine again, and Ro tells me that I can put the pictures back from the computer to the camera.
I have ironed a huge number of garments, some of which I’d forgotten I owned. I still have some heavy woollen jumpers which will wait for a bit (possibly until the autumn), several of the Sage’s shirts and some more of my own clothes as well as the inevitable garment that hasn’t been washed quite clean and will have to be done again.
More interestingly, tonight the Sage and I moved all 29 bantams to their summer quarters. They were a little anxious but quite calm. I put four at a time into a box and covered it with my coat, the Sage carried another one (he needed a free hand, but he did take the biggest) and we carried them the 50 yards or so to the new run. He put them, one at a time, on the perch and they soon settled down again. They will be excited tomorrow when they realise they have a lovely new stretch of grass, full of insects and interesting wriggling things. They are laying lots of eggs already – lucky we can sell the surplus in the shop. Al’s customers are very happy.
