Keeping in touch..
It's been quite some time since my last entry and quite a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then too.
Some of Bryan's fish in the pond, whose photos I placed in the previous entry, have died. They were about thirty years old too.
At first we thought the three new fish we bought recently had brought in a disease, but it turned out that the conditions in the filters were critical, resulting in too much amonia in the pond water. As a consequence of that, three of our oldest fish died and there could be another to follow. The white one, see photo in previous entry, is very lethargic, even though we have done two 50% water changes and added medicines etc to change the Ph back to normal.
Fingers crossed that the new filter booster kicks in soon so that all systems for optimum conditions are back to normal again.
I have, hopefully, placed a photo of a little blackbird chick, the last one to leave the nest in my neighbours clematis, somewhere in the pictures below. I left my specs upstairs and couldn't be bothered to dash up for them as my computer is so contrary these days. I never know if it is going to 'hang' or freeze on me. so I have just dived into my album and hope that the ones chosen are the correct ones.
We also had a couple of male ducks inspecting the pond for habitation but Bryan sent them packing with a wave of a broom...lol! That's all we need at the moment. hahahaha!
When I find their photos I will pop them on too.
My laptop has definitely 'died the death' and now I am 'holding on by my whiskers' to this old one I have here in the cellar bedroom.
Sorry not to have been around much. It has been a frustrating time waiting for my laptop to 'light up' as I call it. The last time it let me on line it took four hours to remember what to do. It's a gonner now so...I need to save my pennies for a new one.
This one keeps telling me that there is no virtual memory...whatever that is??? It could be imitating me possibly???? lol!
The writing is obviously on the wall for this one too.
Our recent weather has been fabulous but this afternoon brought rain with thunder and lightning. Very dramatic dark grey rainclouds with flashes of lightning forking towards the ground. I felt snug and safe indoors watching it through the lounge window.
Well...I don't want to push my luck too far by taking my time on line as I want to post this before my computer decides to freeze again.
Before I go I would like to say thank you to Sal for the lovely music which she placed on here for me.
Thank you my lovely friend. xx
If I am not around much...you will know why.
For now..God bless and stay well and happy.
