Thanks I really do hope so hopefully spring will be here soon 

When I’m lathargic it’s usually when I have money in my bank and not many jobs on.  So by stopping you are not moving and creating energy.  You should always go for a walk when you can’t be bothered, motion creates motion.  Go and donthe thing you love, not money, not for anyone else but for you.

  My thing is building dams and pottering about a ditch getting the water flowing.  I spent my childhood in a burn behind my house, I’d follow it to the top of the hill, a good 600-700’ climb, then over the dyke into the moor where it started.  Then when I’d turn round I’d be looking over the whole town and estuary.

  Whenever I go and do this whether it’s walking the dogs in the woods or up the river I always come back re energised with the answers I need.  But my back usually aches for days as I get a bit carried away with the dams!  And sometimes in a busy life of work , relationships, parenting we forget to just go and do the simple things.  I’ve never had hobbies, too boring.  I like an adventure with no plan, no time to come back.  Oh and leave your phone!😀

I was wile pleased to see 2 Herons in the  wet waterlogged peat that was bulldozed last autumn, not 50m from our kitchen window, followed later by a solitary Heron who calmly sauntered over to inspect the wee pond, where the frogs have been busy this past week.

The first time since 1995 I have seen them thus, though they have always nested in the oldest Sitka stand not a 1/4 mile away, and have always overflown the yard on a daily basis.

Or as some poet expressed it;

 "what is this world, if full of care, we have no time, to stand and stare"

Really like the Viking prow, wish I had time to get to the chainsaw, but really busy with work (not complaining about that) and family.  Still plugging away at the crossbow though - take the bits and pieces to work to carve in my breaks - its a lot easier to carve a small panel than crank up the makita
