... and say hello to the quintuplets! On their first outing today with no sign of an adult. They seem to have adopted me, accept nuts and climb all over me if I sit down beside them and they are hungry. I saw mum nest-building under the barn roof a few weeks ago so I think they've been born in there. Delightful little creatures!

Daffodil & daisies at the same time:o. Is this normal in your land or just an unusually warm spring?

Photo taken 9th May. I think it was about normal weather for the time of year.  (Mind you, we had two days of snow the 13th and 14th!).The narcissus (not a daffodil) is called a 'Whitsuntide lily' here and comes a bit later than the daffodil which is called an 'Easter lily'.

Knowledge is not a heavy burden to bear - not even the useless variety!

Yes but to make things stick I have to repeat myself over and over😉

Could be worse - you may have had to cover yourself in jam/glue/ treacle. Be thankful for the small things in life.

      Northumberland's public health chief has urged residents to follow the new North East lockdown restrictions with coronavirus 'spreading like wildfire' across the county.
      The tougher rules will come into force from midnight on Wednesday, affecting about two million people across Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham, in a bid to stop the soaring number of Covid-19 cases.
      The new measures will mean that people from different households will be banned under law from mixing indoors in any setting, including pubs or restaurants, and will face fines of up to £6,400 for doing so.
      However, it will not be illegal to meet up with friends from another household in a beer garden – though it will be against public health advice to do so.
      Latest figures revealed all seven authority areas in the region have recorded an increase with cases up 79% to 2998 in the week leading to September 25 from 1324 in the previous seven days.
      The number of Covid-19 cases in Northumberland more than doubled to 450 in the same week – the equivalent of 139.6 cases per 100,000 people. This is up from 196 cases (60.8) in the week previous.
