It snowed some more....

Been falling heavily all day. Thank god I went and got some shopping in yesterday, nobody has been able to go anywhere here today. We have around 8 or 9 inches now, it looks fantastic but a bit worrying for all the animals, and farmers being unable to get to them in some cases. The RAC man who lives opposite hasn't been able to get out of our road, and he said even yesterday that he was unable to get to two different breakdowns because of the snow. Our council is only gritting the minimum of roads, the primary through roads, and I don't think they've even done that today, haven't been to look but haven't heard any traffic moving at all today, they have run out of grit I think.

Little Frank been here most of the day, sitting in the front porch, or round at the kitchen window a few times. Great news as he seems that he can use his little injured leg a bit now, I didn't actually think it was him this morning, couldn't believe it as he came in the kitchen window and was using both legs! He holds it up a fair bit, but obviously has a bit of use which is great news.

Oh well, not much else to report today, I've spent most of it going from one place to another putting food out for the birds, I have at least 14 Blackbirds coming and begging for food, plus a lovely Song Thrush which is fantastic, so rare for me here.

I'm glad to hear that little Frank's leg seems to be doing well. He's certainly stuck around for a long time. He's so adorable.

Fingers crossed for Frank, Jan. Hopefully it will fully recover; he;s got you looking out for him after all ;)
