What a busy day I have
A good friend from worked called and we spent the afternoon productively

(shihsssss working yep working I know a foreign word to me now but occasionally it helps to find out if the brain is still OK and of course I keep up to date with whats happening in the Health service world and rejoice that I am no longer part of that awful stressful environment where my ex colleages are struggling to provide a quality service against a background of never ending cuts in resourses)

Then I was about to take Lucky to the vet for her annual jag when more visitors arrived very old friends from caravan days great to see them and reminincse (SP)

Cappagh again

Forgot about my visit to Cappagh High Level on Sun here are some pics

Dont look if you are squeamish!!!!!

What an afternoon!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was sitting in the conservatory doing my bit of studying my D80 camera book

The kitcten windows open wide it is such a nice day

I heard Lucky crying in a very proud voice I guessed the worst and I was right Lucky had brought a live mouse in through the open window!!!! I had to brave it past her and the mouse to close the hall door

I then went outside via the front door and watched the game of cat and mouse through the window

Rang hubby who was out for a walk so he brought a neighbour home with him to deal with the situation and enable me get back inside

All is now sorted but here is the evidence
