Good Afternoon, not so nice today a bit cloudy but dry and a bit milder. Washing out on the line will see if it is dry after I do this entry hope it is then I will get the ironing done tonight.
Yesterday morning I went out to feed and water the birds as usual, the bird bath was frozen and I tried to get the ice out, turned it upside down gave it a bang on the grass and proceeded to break the stem off. I was very annoyed at myself and it was even more annoying as I did not have anyone else to blame but myself. Stuart has tried to fix it for me so it is standing again don't know how long for, will just have to wait and see if it is strong enough to hold all those heavy little birds.
This is a picture I googled to let you see the type of bath it was, still annoy at myself for being so heavy handed. Don't suppose I will ever be able to change that have been that way all my life strange as I am quite tiny only 5ft 1.
Had a brisk walk this afternoon just to the bank and back met a elderly lady worrying what was going to happen when our bank closes down, there is no news of this yet but I am speaking about a branch of The Bank of Scotland which is in the process of being bought over. We have a lovely bank here it sits in its own grounds you know a big old fashioned building beautiful inside with lovely cornices. The lady was saying we will be able to do our banking online but she does not have a PC. We do have three other banks here one of which is the bank that is trying to buy ours but it is not such a nice building as ours so I do hope we keep our one. I suppose I should just be glad that our saving are OK but it is a worry.
Just nipped out and took the washing in before it gets dark and it was not to bad, trying not to use the dryer with the cost of electricity these days, will use the drying screen instead. I think that's about it for today will leave you with my Picture of the Day which is a view of the distant Grampian Mountains taken last March. Till next time Love, Joan.
