Very brave of you, Yums!

im also popping in and out. Mr P has one more night shift tonight, then we are putting him in the car while I drive to Inverness and thence to Orkney and Shetland! 

With a tent ... I'm taking layers of clothes. And midge repellent, although they aren't meant to be bad up there ....

two days walking. Yesterday with Mr P on the North Wales coast path Warm but not hot. Today with the Ramblers in the Rhinogs, down to Harlech, drizzle and rain all day, through every waterproof and down to the skin! Still, it's fun!

We've done our junior production - 3 times today! I don't know why it always gets left so late in term! Sweated buckets in a crowded hall, then tonight one  techie boy didn't turn up so it was a stand in and me, not entirely succesfully, partly because we were a bit new at it, and partly because of a dodgy lead ...

last day tomorrow. So tired and fed up though it doesn't feel like a celebration. Also my colleague who produced/directed the show is retiring and our disinterested head doesn't ever bother to acknowledge the work that goes into it all ... grrr.

You've been busy, Dragon. Where's the report?

ah yes, Friars Balsam! 

Ive just cycled to Parkgate, pretty little town on the silted up banks of the Dee, looking across to Wales, and had an ice cream because it's the law. 30 miles! Feeling it now ...

Parkrunned! First run since about March, but got round in 31.13 or thereabouts depending on which result I read! It's the first anniversary of our local one so made the effort to go. Pippette was ahead of me at the traffic lights - and the finish line ... There was cake!

DL get your holidays over and done with in the next fortnight please. I've got 3 days with kids, mostly rehearsals, show, mass and assemblies. Then one day teachers only.

Goes to look up polydactyl ... not a flying dinosaur then? I didn't know that (although I worked out the etymology)

Went to see the Merchant of Venice last night with Pippette - RSC touring with Jonathon Pryce. I don't know the play (just the story) but it was very good. I have seen him act before in The Caretaker and was very impressed. The whole production was good though.

And a sparrowhawk landed in our garden just after breakfast. Mr P called me down when I was getting ready to leave, so I rushed in with a camera, then when I saw it was settled in for a while, eating what it had caught, I got a better camera and a longer lens!
