Not all the time, we’ve even had sunshine in heavy rain showers. But it’s all pretty grey on the whole. Luckily, when I went out mid-afternoon to shut up the greenhouse, I thought I’d give the chickens some mealworm treats and they all came home, so I was able to shut up their run and didn’t have to cajole them inside later. They were not pleased with me and clustered disconsolately round the entrance to the tunnel, staring at me. I’ll let them out early tomorrow as I have to be out before 9, to get my second vaccination. I’ll vote in the local elections on my way home, which together seem to me to be quite enough achievement for the day. Anything extra is a bonus. I’m so bored. So, so bored and yet I have little inclination to get much done.
Still, never mind. It will get better. Next week, Tim and I are planning to head down to his place for a couple of days. He needs to find a new gardener and has a couple of interviews lined up. I’m just going to keep him company. I haven’t been there since early February last year. Wink will be in sole charge here for a couple of days. I must buy more Go Cat for the outside cats, they will surely succeed in convincing her that they’re woefully underfed (their bellies sway underneath them as they walk) and that they need double rations if they aren’t to starve to Actual Real Death. Likewise, Eloise cat will persuade her that she cannot eat the food put out for her, but needs a different brand, each three times a day. She does not know this yet and I’m no snitch.
