Which ever way I tried to look at my task in hand, it was going to take most of the day. On top of all this, I had to go and buy a new toaster from Currys. What a life right? Try and keep up.
The math was simple. If I took ten hours to do the doors, I could probably steal an hour or so without anyone asking why I was taking so long to slap a bit of brilliant white on some doors?
Okay so the best place for me to get that hour is usually Connaught Water. It has average ducks and stuff on the water and always a teasing nuthatch or treecreeper that draw me to them like a siren does a sailor. This usually means I get my boots incredibly muddy and this always looks a little suspicious when the 'weekend jobs' police start asking questions.
Anyway, it was good today. The light was excellent and the birds amazingly confiding and of a fair variety.
