blackbird on surfboard
I quite fancy a little blackbird to keep me company on my next board.

I used to have a sticker of a dog on the nose of one of my early surfboards, just always liked seeing him there - and if things ever got a bit hairy out in the surf it was always reassuring having 'Ken' there. Made me feel safer somehow...

Lately I've been fascinated by a blackbird that lives in our garden - seems like a plucky little guy. So I might get him on my next board.

While I'm at it I might break with my usual tradition of custard yellow and go for a pale avocado instead.

Dearly beloved...

For us, any Saturday could be the best day or it could also be the worst!

The best; because it’s the day when we’re in the spotlight, the centre of attention, when everybody wants to see us, when we might get a new partner, the start of a new life.

The worst; because anyone and everyone wants a feel, sliding their clumsy hands all over us, squeezing a bit too hard, even knocking us about sometimes. It can also be the worst day because although we may meet a new partner - there are no guarantees we’ll get along. Very much like an arranged marriage it could very easily go pear-shaped!

A few days ago the 'Birthday Bush' (Azalea) looked like this.

A harsh Summer wind...

Now it looks like this :(
