It’s been an odd kind of day. It’s been a very cold, dull, grey day, the kind of day that dulls the sound of chickens squawking. Emma did the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, although there weren’t a hell of a lot of birds to count. It’s been a weird time of year – so much food around that they just aren’t coming to our garden restaurants.

We had breakfast quite early for a Sunday but then got stuck into clearing out bureau and doing some long overdue filing. I carried on the filing later in the afternoon by finally – about 10 years later than planned – getting all the utility bills & c. into folders of their own kind, and organising them into the filing draw of my desk. 🙂
