When i woke up this morning DH called me into the kitchen to look out of the window and look at the trees in our garden. I rushed off to grab the camera and in my haste to switch it on and get a pic i ran into the glass patio doors of the conservatory as DH hadn't opened them yet!!! I am now sporting 2 lovely black eyes and a very bruised/swollen nose, but i did get a pic of the heron that sat there for quite a while surveying the area (click pic for a better view). I guess he was looking for something he could steal to eat. Some neighbours do have fishponds, i wonder what was on the menu for him?
Have you all finished your Christmas shopping? I still have a few small items to get and wrap and also a couple of stitched items to finish off and make up. This weekend the master plan is to write my cards, although due to recent events and low funds i'll not be sending as many as i usually do. I hope people will understand, i'm sure a lot of people will be having a different Christmas this year due to the economy, maybe its a good thing and the true meaning of Christmas will be in a lot of homes.
Enjoy your weekend
