It's quiet in here today...

...I suspect many are enjoying the sunshine while it's here. At least we have plenty in the south East of Kent. SWMBO had to come in from the conservatory.
Me, I'm stuck indoors revising for an exam on Tuesday  Cry

I've just got in after a visit to Cafe Nero for coffee. A lovely day in the sunshine.

Thanks artmo. Scary stuff as the last exam I had was many years ago.

I've been busy cutting the front and back grass as the rest of this week looks miserable.
Now the daughter is dragging me out for chauffeur duties.

Just got back from doing "Mate" duties on the Chichester Canal Trip Boat " Richmond"  Pleasant 2 hour cruise along a very peaceful and beautiful canal run by, and maintained by, volunteers.

Yes they do get a bit pushy at that place.
Even when I threw some bread in the water there some little fat horses dashed in after it.

Just home from a very hot (and a bit of a needle) bowls match.
Oh yes! we (slightly unexpectedly) won.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Most of the time it is, being essentially a very friendly game with much light-hearted banter going on. Like any sport it can get quite cut-throat at times though when the banter turns to biting sarcasm, the equivalent of the professional foul.

Just got back from feeding the local peregrine falcon chicks ...  well okay I was feeding the pigeons in the park near the falcons' nest.
