      You too Marian. Hope your garden is drying out & the damage minimal 🙁

    I was just thinking what a lovely photo that was! It’s a pleasure to have you in my inbox on a Sunday! :o)

      It’s a very gloomy Sunday here. I was going to do some weeding and then in the end couldn’t be bothered. But, idle fingers and all that. The trouble is when you start fiddling with technology you so often set something in motion that can’t then be stopped…

    The best way to have someone read a post …Please Ignore..

      Lol. It was worth a try.

    It is very nice to find a post from you anytime. Are the ducks now in for the winter?

      They aren’t in yet, it’s a pic from last year, but that is where they’ll be living when it starts to get frosty. All tucked up in the shed.

      Exactly the same could be said for Much Malarkey Manor. Quieter week next week. In theory. Back soon.. x

    I see new header photos … meddling is fun. I’ve been doing some too 🙂

      They’ll be restored soon. I’m done in for today. I shall go back to meddling tomorrow!

    where’s the robin?

    • Jessica October 18, 2015 at 8:59 pm - Reply

      He’s back, I hope.. he’s certainly back in the garden, my constant companion. No doubt only as long as I’m good for digging up worms.

    Such personality in those duckie heads, it’s a lovely shot. Good luck with unmeddling it all. Such things fill me with fear. At the moment I’m having trouble even turning on the television. Probably not anything on anyway. CJ xx

      I have backed out for today. There is only so much technology related angst that a person can take in one day and Mike is on his second G&T. At least I didn’t crash the whole system. That’s good isn’t it?

    Gotta love those ducks 🙂

    Oops… You said I should ignore :-O

    Hopefully you will have everything fixed soon.

    As to ducks… We went out for Sunday lunch and our entertainment as we waited for lunch was the ducks capering around. A black duck every now and then started to chase all the other ducks and scatter them all over the place until they congregated back in a group. Then he did it all over again 😉

      I’ve seen the same behaviour with swans and it was a black one again that was doing the damage. So it’s not just black sheep then…!

    Ah, meddling I did some of that too and end up with some weird results! Enjoy those G&T’s!

      It drives me to drink, it really does!

    There is nothing more likely to attract attention than a test post. It’s like when we receive an email entitled “please disregard the last email”. Can we disregard it? Not without reading it first. Would we have read it had we not seen the title of the second email? Probably not. I hope everything is under control and the G + Ts were up to scratch.

      You’re absolutely right Sarah. Fascinating to see someone else mess up.. there but for the grace of god etc. The wine was good too. Technology related headache this morning 🙁

    ‘Please ignore’ …. you know that will make us want to come over all the more just to see what you’re up to 😉

      It could save me so much writing time.. 😉

    Made me laugh to see so many respond to your test…You have real friends out here in the internet.

      Me too Charlie! But it had a serious side, I wanted to check that swopping post pages around didn’t break the links with Feedly, subscribers etc. Thankfully it didn’t.

I'd love to hear from you..
