Grandads Back!

Grandads Back!

Well dear readers, have you missed me? Some have but I have certainly missed you! The time just slips away, I have so many interests, art, rc aircraft, cooking, winemaking, etc, that the blog has suffered from neglect a little.  Not only that, but my personal life has been rather taking over my time for the last few months and I have now discovered that I have a bone broken in my hand that was an old injury and has failed to heal!  So waiting for an operation, good old NHS which the government is doing its best to try and destroy in my humble opinion. I bet Cameron wouldn't have to wait 5 months, they would ask him when he might like to have it sorted, today or tomorrow? Wish they would ask me that.

I have faithfully put out food for the birds over the Winter. The pleasure of watching Robins, Starlings, Wagtails, Blue tits, Great tits, Pigeons, and our resident cheeky squirrel (nicknamed Sid) has far outweighed the cost of the food. I am hoping to put up some nest boxes in the next month and perhaps rig up a video camera or two, but the broken hand does not help when trying to do these things.

In a couple of days, it is the birthday of the girlfriend of my eldest son. Did you follow that? Her name is Scarlet, one of my favourite colours to use in my art and a beautiful name in my opinion. I am decorating one of my rc aircraft in scarlet and white, also fitting it with lights for night flying. I will try and post some pictures of it soon. Well, that has just made Scarlet world famous, happy birthday!

Until the next time dear reader.......
