    I do like the effect you have achieved like looking through a stained glass window or. frosty window, very effective.

    Good Morning and 5.3 for me today.

    A late night to Baked as Mrs MC started playing some folktunesonher Flute and. I picked up my guitar to join her and so the night became Morning as we played through a lot of our favourite pieces, so self inflicted tiredness.

    Promised SIL I will join him on a Muddy Bike Ride this morning, early start and it's a wonderful Spring morning here.

    Later I hope to sit and enjoy watching our garden rather than working in it.

    Take care keep safe.

    Good morning everyone on another promising start for a day of joint pleasing warmth here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of a simple salad dinner came in at 4.9 this am

    @Muddy Cyclist - good call with the wave breakers and look forward with interest to seeing darkened seas.
    @geefull - thank you for “two for joy” - interesting sculptured treatment from you that works very well.
    @gennepher - love that winter moon that for me is seen through a glass darkly or stained glass at least to give a cold crunch to the scene.

    Wonderful day yesterday - balmy - and that’s not just me. Out early and a walk down a fairly deserted prom, back up through town, a couple of turns round the park - back in time for tea and medals.
    Mr Potato Head has gone all gender neutral - will that mean that there will be less pieces? More pieces? So how do you then distinguish when ordering between the one with the black pork pie hat and moustache and the blond one with the red lips? Good grief, nearly as bad as not being able to read “A Little House on the Prairie”. We have come so far since the ancient Greeks despite the controls of despots but now - humanity, in the west at least, seems doomed to whoever shouts the loudest on social media. Fahrenheit 451? Howl against the moon, tilt at the windmills.

    Didn’t feel like art yesterday, suffering from acyrologia - or probably acyrologiaphobia - so just a quick sketch on a 4x4” bit of rice paper. Hope everyone has a spiffingly good Saturday, if not argue with yourself about vaccine rollout in a Tommy Cooper Brigadier and Fritz outfit in a flurry of gender free idiocy. Where’s mi koffy.

    Beautiful day again in North Cumbria.
    Had a good afternoon yesterday when we went down to the Solway and Campfield Marsh RSPB. When we were parked up we had a car to car chat with some birder friends.
    The guy is younger than I and a very sick man but not letting anything stop him getting out and planning on getting to Wells birding in the autumn. Great attitude.
    Near the marsh pools a male Hen Harrier in good plumage flew past close, great views of a rare breeding bird.

    Had a look at my bt emails last night and found I had got the shielding extremely vulnerable letter from NHS.
    Not supposed to go out, go to chemist or shops, etc, etc.

    Have a good day everyone.
    D.

    Thank you for the painting compliment @dunelm

    All your bird paintings are brilliant, and I love this one too.
    You are very competent painting birds.
    I am watching some finches outside my bedroom...

    A foggy day in Bath town - complete change from yesterday when the sun was literally splitting the sky...

    Overnight FBG, with the help of a 30 minute brisk walk with doglet has yielded 5.8mmol...

    Breakfast will be a naughty sausage under the grill, bacon the same way, mushrooms and poached eggs...and a cup of rich roast coffee.

    Today is a honey do special - we have a typical Bath city centre courtyard garden, so tidying up won't take very long then off on the trike shopping at some locals - butcher, cheesemonger, fishmonger- supporting the little guys. Mrs BRS has decided we need another cat to complement the brood so I am staying out of the argument as I'll lose.

    Heard overnight daughter #2 is now a fully qualified pilot on C17 transporters so another one on her way (quite literally).
    Per ardua ad astra! Makes me feel very old ;)

    Have a super Saturday all.

    You'll see my ghost in Haltwhistle ;) Although I lived all my formative years in Glasgow, was born in Gretna - about as border straddling as you can get!

    Fabulous place to go twitching...

    5.5 this frosty morning. Teaching all day today - even in my lunch break. So a busy day.

    7.45am FBG 5.1
    Surprisingly low for a disturbed night with hours spent awake fretting. Not about MrSlim this time, another small unrelated issue which is past and cannot be changed. Useless regrets and guilty feelings keeping me awake. Then Errant decided it was time for breakfast just after 6am. Managed to put him back to bed without waking MrSlim, which was good, however I didn't go back to sleep. Got up with cat at about 7.30. FBG as detailed. Thought DP might have kicked in, was expecting higher result so quite pleased with this.
    MrSlim has just informed me we are going for a walk. This entirely scuppered my plans for an exciting day of hand laundry, (sheets) shopping and batch cooking granola, with a few hours of bonfire feeding thrown in.
    Errant will not be pleased either. It's a mild spring day, he will be left outside to face the monsters alone (our hosts have four lively children.) With five acres and neighbouring countryside to escape to, am sure he will find himself a peaceful spot.
    No ill effects from jab.
    Keep/get well, stay safe.

    Back from the physio - miraculously with limbs still intact!
    I think regrettably the time has come to retire physio workouts of old and just do my latest rehab exercises - the lovely Alessio did point out that the previous physios were dealing with whatever issues I had at the time and with more limbs misbehaving... and to be honest it makes sense as doing two lots of physio routines was beginning to get on for 45 mins and then half an hour of cardio...

    Been told to put new Swipey on my right arm as the covid jab is more favoured on your non-dom arm...

    Right - bacon and eggs beckons before attempting to do some Briwatch work... and then settling down for the Rugby later

    Welcome Saturday. Quite when a 5.2 on Swipey needed divine intervention to rescue the day - weekend? - is unclear but a sad fact of my life for now. So, Pope Francis - good to see he makes it into C of E Lent reflections- my granddaughter "Boo"- Isobelle Alessia is so much nicer - and The Ozark Mountain Daredeveils come to the rescue. God provides in mysterious ways - LC 0 God gazillions - always gonna be 1 sided. Hug for wakefulness @SlimLizzy. Your evening sounds wonderful @Muddy Cyclist. Glad the arm is improving and great art @geefull. Hug for lost keys and cold start @gennepher - art is a gift for you thanks for sharing. @dunelm I sense a gamut of emotions hidden in that post hug for the despair at man's inhumanity to man and every other self definition and thanks for the art. @lindisfel I would imagine your daughter and The Duchess hang their heads in despair at such a "cavalier" approach. @BRSBRI you must be so proud of both daughters.
    5.0 @ 10.07 - something is wrong there after tea and minimal stepage.

    That's a great swipey result overall. Hope all's well. Sun is peeking through the morning clag now...Amazon delivered the wrong stuff. Joys! Grrr.

    That's kind of you @ianpspurs - they've both done well. Very different - one was in the St John's Ambulance helping where she could and working in pharmacies to make pennies; the other even aged 5 was staring at the skies, plane spotting and flying solo before she could drive! I'm glad in retrospect she went to the RAF and not airlines given Covid's impact.

    @jjraak @geefull Thank you for kind and sympathetic comments.
    MrSlims symptoms have reduced thankfully and as you say, knowing what the problem is does help.
    Time frame however has always been a lottery for this type of operation, with long waiting periods in most health authorities, even before covid.

    I hope not because my daughter is in Edinburgh uni and I haven't been able to see her for months :( I might have to dodge border control and hope I don't get tasered :nailbiting:

    Don't you worry. Just sing Flower of Scotland at full throttle - that's a passport right here ;)
    Hope your daughter is doing fine
