2016 has been very busy so far, both at home and at work. Nothing in particular, just busy. Part of the business at home has been that I now have a table in the bedroom where I can play small games with my Star Wars ships. I have been able to experiment at odd moments with different combinations of ships and weapons. Great fun.
We are still looking after Spot, my mum's dog, but on Saturdays I take him to her house for the day. She is OK in the house, but still lacks the mobility to get out on her own, so this week I took her out in a wheelchair. We took Spot to the park, where we saw this Mandarin Duck on the pond.
There was only the one, in with all of the other ducks, but he really stood out. It seems that there are a few thousand of these in the wild in southern England these days. Would be nice to see some more, and maybe some babies in the future.
Mrs RC has been doing more knitting and crochet. One of her latest creations is this blanket that she made for my mum. My mum loves it, and so does Garfield the cat!
The unseasonally warm weather has continued, and Mr Chuffington has failed to hibernate again. He has not been very active, but he has come out of his bedroom each night to eat half a tin of dog food, and meal worms. Tonight he was waiting for me to bring his bowl, so I snapped a pic.
I don't think he was very impressed...
