Water flowing underground

Spring is springing

Spring Fling Moley
and the black squirrel has ripped the bird feeder from its stand, emptied it, and flung it into the clump of flowering snowdrops.

MWNN flew out this morning to attend our nephew's second child's christening ceremony. Ronnie is very twitchy as he can't find his best buddy anywhere. He's taken up residence on the back of the sofa, waiting for MWNN's return.

He was not impressed that we walked on the recreation ground without his ball this morning. He's skinned the top of his toes on both feet and when he gallops around after his ball, the wounds open and bleed. Gentle trotting doesn't seem to do any damage so that's the regime he'll get during MWNN's absence.

Knitting is going well. Two 'pay it forward' parcels are on their way to the first two names pulled out of a hat, and I sent a new Spring/Autumn shrug to Ireland for irishnoodles

The thought of Spring Cleaning is filling me with horror. Just watching deborahw37's weekly schedule makes me exhausted.

Awwww, Ronnie! So cute! I'm confident that Riley lurves me, but when I leave, he just sleeps till I'm back :)

That's what he tells you, but I bet if you ask Stoopid Misty you'd get a different answer.

Letchworth has a large collection of black squirrels (the first ale-selling pub was called The Black Squirrel) but this is the first year I've spotted one across the border in Hitchin.

Ronnie is back to his usual self now.

That's the second shrug I've done. It really is very fast and easy to make and Posh Yarn never disappoints with its colours. This one was called 'hearth'.

He's fine now, though he is regularly trying MWNN's office for any sign of him.

Squirrels are instruments of Satan on earth. There cutesy looks are entirely a sham. I like them.

Spring Cleaning is one of Satan's inventions. He's everywhere, I tell ya. I don't like spring cleaning.

I love the shrug. It's beautiful!

I like to watch squirrels at work.
