Spring is on the way!
I know, I can see it!
A couple of weeks ago I was taking photos like this
on my way to work. But this morning the sun was well above the horizon. It snuck up on me because we have had a lot of cloud cover recently so the sun has not really been visible in the murk. So I am wrapping up warm and thinking warm thoughts.
Yesterday evening I went to give blood. It was all a bit of a rush - leaving work, cycling home, eating dinner, walking the dogs, deciding that I would rather walk the the hall but then realising that I was running a bit late and jogging the rest of the way...
They were pleased to see me, though, as I am O Negative - anyone can have my blood, regardless of type which makes it valuable stuff to have around either for emergencies where the don't know what type the victim is or for babies who have not been tested yet.
Mrs RC says I am obsessed with my new camera. I don't know why she thinks that...
After they had finished they sit you down and give you drinks, biscuits and crisps.
There was a guy there who seems to have been put on a diet by his wife. He was gleefully stuffing down the biscuits, saying "I don't want them, but they ORDERED me to eat them! COOOOKIIEEEEEEEESSSSSS"
Then it was back home to slob on the sofa for a while. The new sofa seems to act as a magnet for the kids - they never used the sittingroom while we had the camping chairs there...
