This guy (or possibly girl – I’m not that good at determining the sex of swans, but I assume it’s a male) is still cruising the ditches all on his own. He hisses at us now and again, but Gordon took him a crust of bread and he was much friendlier after that!
I’m in the process of preparing for my long weekend away to Glasgow to visit my friend Lorraine and attend her engagement party. It’s the first time I’ve been on a plane alone and I’m not sure whether I’m nervous or just excited. It’ll be an opportunity for us to catch up and for her to show me the sights. I’ll keep you posted.
I went to see mum and dad today, and you’ll be pleased to know mum is much improved. When I rang to see whether they were home she was, according to dad, up a step-ladder covering the top of the wardrobes with lining paper! Must be feeling a bit better then.
