A Gift, Long Tailed Tits and Lunch with My Brother

1   I have woken to find this posting from a lovely ex-student of mine and it has made my day!  He says,” Your philosophy of teaching I would say…x”

2   As I walked round the garden this morning, I became aware that the bird feeder was full of young Long Tailed Tits. I stood absolutely still and watched as they came and went,10 of them in the feeders at one point but I didn’t have my camera! Later, I caught just this one – so beautiful and such an amazing few moments!

3   We met P&V at the beautiful, restored-after-its-fire, Pandora Inn on Restronguet Creek for lunch. When I went to place our order, the bar person said, ‘Sorry, you must have your table number wrong, someone else has just ordered on that number, ‘ and I was able to say, ‘No, that was my brother. He was just ordering too.’  How lovely to be able to say that, my brother is here! He is ordering too! It is so lovely to have him and V here for so long!

We’re out tonight so I’m posting earlier than usual. Happy days everyone!
