It is a beautiful morning here on the Hill and as I was filling the kettle I was struck by the light of the rising sun, emerging from behind the houses opposite, and they way it illuminated the little tree in the front garden - it was lovely.
But don't take my word for it - have a look.
Maybe not the most artistic composition and you don't feel the actual warmth of the sun but hopefully you get the idea.
Hopefully the weather stays fine this morning, we are expecting several hundred people at the funeral for Dean Greenway and I don't really want them all standing in the rain.
On the subject of water - we have a leak in the kitchen - right at the back of the units where you can't actually get to it - a little tiny drip of water that has been silently leaking into the woodwork and ruining the cupboard.
There comes a point where you think, what else can go wrong? Leaking roof, burglar alarm,the flooded dining room etc etc. But Mrs B and I are trying to remain calm, aided by Tesco own brand Pinot G!
Mrs B managed to win the pinch punch battle again this month, I think that must be 7 or 8 months in a row - she lays in bed snoring and you creep towards her ready to pounce and at the last minute she reaches out a hand and pinch punch, your caught - she then turns over and starts snoring again! Amazing.
Anyway, time to make her a cup of tea and then poached eggs on toast for brekkie.
Have a nice May Day....... May Day...what's the emergency?
'But I must gather knots of flowers,
And buds and garlands gay,
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother,
I'm to be Queen o' the May.'
Alfred Lord Tennyson
