Well for a number of years my day off would consist of working to catch up but today I actually had a day off. I relaxed in bed until after 9 am (this does not happen often), I got up watched TV, which included the Great British Bake off. Listened to smooth radio whilst relaxed in the bath (no longer a gorilla 🙂 ). Went for a walk along the riverside and enjoyed my hobby of photography. Then back home to yet again to relax and listen to music. Days off are great when you actually don’t work. So a word to all you people who worry about targets, deadlines and getting behind, just stop and enjoy the day, take a moment to do your hobby or interest or just stay in bed.
Oh dear, 4 emails sent (so some work) and now this is how bad its got 🙂
Camera is at the ready, I am now positioned so that I can move like a gazelle if required (maybe an exaggeration). Think of way to coax the little mite onto my shed roof so that I can get a better shot (not self indulgent for conservation purposes). Still no reply from The Red Squirrel Survival Trust. Think may actually name him/her. This is not an obsession I have decided its an Interest (sounds so much better). Now must get back to marking work for the Health and Social care Diploma so that I can get back to Squirrel Watch later.
11:56 no sighting but that is mainly due to the pile that is mounting on my sofa, I do have a system that I am trying to focus on but I have to confess I am still intrigued by the squirrel and whether it will be back by the end of the day. Lots of annoying pigeons doing battle but I don’t feel the need to photograph those. Right back to the marking it is (shame can’t have a glass of vino to get me through the marking). Well here is hoping for squirrel watch to produce another sighting. Even the cat is getting in the way. Oh and come on RSST get back to me please.
Morning of 20/07/15 I find myself obsessing over a little creature that I found in the trees behind my house yesterday. I was lucky enough that he/she decided to come back and visit yesterday evening. So what do I find myself doing this morning instead of getting my 10 year old ready for school? I find myself sat with coffee in hand at my back window staring out at the said trees for any glimpse of he/she visiting again.
Yesterday I even sent an email to The Red Squirrel Survival Trust asking them to verify if the said squirrel is a red one. Oh what has my life come to that I take more time on Squirrel Watch then I do checking that 10 year old has boxers, matching socks on.
Update at 08:07 no sighting today as yet. I have to tell myself to work today and not look out of the window with camera in hand.
09:13 spotted the little mite but not quick enough with camera, now must move away and do some work, not sure squirrel watch is a valid excuse to take time off.
