This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

Monday, Dec 13th, 2010

I am sorry I haven't posted for some time - and I apologise in advance for not posting every day for the time being.

There have been - and are - a bunch of reasons:

*) my health - getting better, but it is tow steps forward, one step back, so it'll take time;

*) the weather - it has been arctic here, with pavements, pathways and even some of the fields actually iced over, which has made walking far more hazardous than last year, especially since Miss Sophie is a bit more of a handful, physically, than Madame Dog was;

*) the ravens - they are erratic at the moment, because there are far more crows in Llandaff Fields than last year. This is due to the building works going on in the area where I live. A couple of trees where the crows used to roost have been felled, so they and the ravens are looking for new accommodation.

Please bear with me - I'll do my best to get this blog back to normal!

Hi {Yma} this is realwest - and I want you to know that you've been missed!
I sincerely hope your health keeps on improving although I suspect that the weather will not improve that much!
But I did want you to know how much you've been missed {{Yma}}.
And give Miss Sophie a tummy rub for us!

Thanks, {rw}!

I'll try and do my best - only we're going to have another lot of arctic weather coming, straight from the North Pole.
So things will still be a bit hit-and-miss, I'm afraid ...

Isure hope it is a bit warmer where you are!
