well at 9pm last night I gave up, turned the 'puter off and went to bed. I was zonked.
When I eventually woke up I felt a bit refreshed but it didn't last. I am still zonked. The weather is lovely but I just can't summon up the energy to go for a wander.
Went around dad's this morning to find a shelf had collapsed in the garage spilling paint. This missed his new car by INCHES!!! eek!
I did see a Brimstone butterfly in dad's garden and another driving home. There were bees about as well. Is spring finally here?
When I was a kid the butterfly I saw most of was the Small Tortoiseshell but I seldom see it now. Butterfly Conservation are reporting that Small Tortoiseshell numbers are down 80% since 1990. No one knows why, it could be climate change or it could be tied to the tiny parasitoid fly Sturmia bella, first noted in Britain in 1999.
