Well my absence from the world of blogging was not for too long after all. Have I sorted my ‘life issues’ out? Not really but I have come to a point where I realise that life has to go on, whether or not it is a happy and contented life remains to be seen, for the moment I guess that I’m just resigned to seeing how it plays out, after all everything changes eventually and who’s to say what lies around some distant corner awaiting to pounce upon this unsuspecting rotund Welshman? I guess we’ll just have to wait with baited breath for life to pan out and bring what ever it brings. Oooh I nearly felt a tad profound for the briefest of moments then, that’ll never do, not at all.
So has this little hobbit remained buried behind his round door just letting the world pass him by? Bugger that my friends I’ve been the very essence of the term as busy as a beaver! What with demolishing garden walls, the planting of seeds, a couple more walking staffs refurbished for folk (starting to become quite adept at this), having a rather excessive evening of drink and cud chewing with me mucker Rob, and walking, yep lots n lots of walking. So the simple fact is that all indeed has not been doom and gloom in the world of Wooldridge Esq. and hobbit in training. In fact all this walking has started to have visible affects upon this hobbit’s love handles with a marked reduction in their size, meaning cloths are beginning to fit (where they touch) a tad better although still a little snug to be honest.
So being as this is the first post back since, well the last one, I’m keeping it short though as usual not particularly sweet. A couple of things of note, I managed to spot and photograph (ok a grainy distance shot) a really rare bird for these parts; a Great Grey Shrike! I’ve never seen one before and will probably not have the fortune to see one again so for this bumbling happy snapper to capture it, albeit poorly, on a picture makes me as happy as a pig in the really smelly stuff.
Also stumbled across what I believe to a juvenile fox skull, minus its canine teeth. Well ok the Warthog found it and alerted me to its location.
Other than that I’ve been car booting as well and bought for what amounts to loose change a set of hand carving tools, a new flat cap (do not say a word, no not even under the breath… thank you), a couple of courgette plants and some ‘far side’ books amongst a host of other bits n bobs. So there you have it, I’ve been away but kept me eye upon you lot, and quiet but busy so all that remains is to add some of the usual walking pictures because I know some of you likes em my preciousessss (heaven knows why?)
|Yes it's blurry but have you seen how fast these buggers are?|
Till next time, take care of you and yours,
Now I don’t write this drivel for attention or points but today (first time ever) I scanned the stats of visits for this pathetic excuse of writing and it seems that more folk logged in when I stopped writing than when my little fingers were smoking on me keypad – you lot trying to tell me something? On second thoughts don’t answer that one…
