I will start with the sad news - the dove did not make it. He/she (I was only guessing at its gender) went to sleep the other night and did not wake up. It was a real shame, but at least he/she was warm and had food and water there for the taking.
A lot of other parts of the UK have had good snow falls in the last week, but not us. Sticking out at the bottom right corner, almost touching France, our weather is often different. We have it cold (the garden pond had ice on it this morning) but only flurries of snow that has not hung around. Probably a good thing, really!
My ride to work has been quieter for a couple of weeks now, due to some road works that are diverting a lot of the traffic. It should have finished last Thursday, but they started work two and a half days late, so are now over running badly. This is not helped by the fact that their trenches all flooded over the weekend, so they now have a ton of water to pump out before they can carry on.
I am not complaining, though.
