Shackerley Mere

 Pleasant walk in the bright sunshine around Shackerley Mere this morning.  A bit crowded with dog walkers and toddler walkers but just enough space to get away from the crowd. 

Lots of geese, ducks and swans gliding across the mirrored water.  Lots of fishermen too - some just packing up so they were probably there from the early hours. Most had little bivouac tent affairs that foded neatly into a canvas bag.  The ideal social distanced hobby/pastime.

Chicken and Waffles

The usual Saturday "Chicken Run" to the Co-op early this morning in the pouring rain. Decided to go in the car for a change and stay reasonably dry. Later to Hazel's Mom and sister's to drop off the chicken and waffles etc. Sat in the front garden but it was pretty cold despite the sun popping out briefly, so we didn't stay long. Hazel did a dance in front of the window to entertain her Mom. I read the local paper - full of doom and gloom! The enormous fat cat waddled up to say "meiow" and point at it's face for food. Audrey has been feeding him despite the knowledge that he might explode!

 Nice walk around Marbury.  Along the lake edge - water seemed a lot higher after the recent heavy rains.  Lots of mad dogs and owners to avoid.  Hazel wanted some new plants for herself and her Mom and sister so we ended up at the garden centre and had to lug four bags full(£28)  back to the car which was parked the other side of the walled garden and on the main Marbury road.  Then over to Loctock to give the plants to Doreen and Audrey.
