Earrings and Car troubles.
We decided to go to Gander yesterday morning early to do the end of the month shopping and I was quite excited about getting a futon that was on sale at one of the department store. We set off, got up to the highway, turned right heading for our destination. We got so far down the highway when we started hearing this tinny clinking sound. We pulled over and both got out of the car looking under it and around it. Couldn't see a problem but thought we'd better go back home and get to a mechanic as we didn't want to break down on the highway and have to phone for a tow truck. So....we manage to make it back and after parking the car in the driveway, came in the house. I was sitting on the chesterfield, himself came in and sat besides me. I was pondering on how we would manage if there was something seriously wrong with the car when himself says in a hushed whisper..."Listen!" There was dead silence when himself says "It's your earrings." Blush! Blush! Well, I do wear big earrings and I guess with the movement of both car and my head they were making a tinny clinking sound. So, we set off again. No more problems! We got the shopping done and I got my futon. Now, surely it's not rocket science to put one of these things together but I, for the life of me, can't understand a word of the instructions. I expect I'll have another go at it today.
The weather has been amazing. Sunny and warm. This little one is here often. Such a character.
Lots of Nuthatches at the feeders. I was disappointed that I hadn't seen any all last winter but loads around now. Not as many butterflies as I normally see but loads of bees.
