After two weeks of living in the spare room we finished decorating at the back end of last week so we’ve moved back in too our bedroom – it’s weird but it felt like I was on holiday it, new colours, new bedding, new cupboards, in fact almost new everything except same old me of course.
I almost managed to get out today, not fishing exactly, but the BLAS (Blackpool and LAyton Angling Society) guys had a sea fishing match at Blackpool but just as I was about to go I managed to pull a muscle in my shoulder tidying up of all things so that messed that up. Looks like they had a good time though as you can see from this report; Sunday 1st Feb – Blackpool North Wall.
I did manage to do a bit of walking last weekend thought when we spent a bit of time up at my parents ‘dog sitting’. Only had time for a quick stroll up the road as Megan (black labrador), at 11 years old, is no longer as young as she was and now saunters rather that charges up the hill but I did manage a quick snap of Parlick as we meandered up the lane.
What never ceases to amaze me though is the wealth of bird life in that area. Whether it’s the food Mum puts out for them or just the fact that they live in the country – the garden is constantly full of the sounds of all kinds of birds. There is certainly no evidence of decreasing bird life up in Chipping and after standing watching for a while I managed to snap this photo of a Nuthatch – as per usual, upside down.
