I’m not very good at settling down and cracking on with some work when there are distractions around, I just can’t shut out background noise very easily and other peoples phone conversations derail my train of thought. So a couple of weeks ago Joe and I hauled some furniture around and made me a little private space, the box room is now my office, my very own padded cell: I’ve got a pen tidy, a pot plant and an angel-poise lamp, my books on the book case and of a pair of binoculars and the camera, you see my new ‘office’ has a view over the pond, it’s a bit of a distraction. I can watch the heron basking (and panting) in the sun.
as I looked on, it stalked the edge of the pond and then made a dramatic ‘belly flop’ dive into the centre of the pond, I missed the shot,
but I’ll be ready next time.
