Away with the birdies – 4 June 2015

I couldn’t sleep this morning so got up to see Scamp off to work, read for a while, finished off a painting and settled down to wait for the gas man to come to service the boiler.  You can’t say I don’t lead a busy and active life.  What I don’t do is turn on the TV as soon as I get up.  I don’t know if I’ve ever turned on TV in the morning unless it was to watch the (few) live Formula one Grands Prix on a Sunday morning – that’s different though.  I did get a chance to watch the birds teaching their young to feed and that was a laugh.  Didn’t even have to go far, just watched them from the kitchen window.

In the afternoon after the gas man had been and gone, I went in to Stirling by myself so I could window shop without interruption.  Wasn’t really looking for anything in particular, just browsing.  I knew I had some shots in the bag for today’s POD, so the pressure was off.  Just as well, as I didn’t see anything that caught my eye.  It was surprisingly warm and almost dry.  I think that was the extent of my exciting day.  Some days are like that now.  Being retired can be such hard work 😉

I know these sparrows are hungry, but this one seems intent on getting that whole peanut into it's beak.  Perhaps it was watching the pigeons earlier when they hoovered up almost a whole bag of peanuts. 365/155

Too late, too late. All the peanuts have gone my friend! Come again tomorrow for more.
