We went for a walk through the woods beyond our garden this morning and saw our first bluebell! Lots of bluebell leaves throughout the woods plus at the bottom of our garden, so knew they’d be flowering soon.

Our first walk after starting self-isolating last March was early one Sunday morning through the woodland to see the drooping bluebells before heavy rain was forecast during the next few days. That was April 26th, so it will be interesting to see when they are coming to an end this year.

Into Saintes today to a machine shop to see if they could help me with a sticking butée d'embrayage. A quick turn with a 24 mm reamer and all running smoothly. No charge. Engine back in tomorrow.

I heard a parcel come through the letter box. Looked and there was a large flat box at the back of the door, I was thinking to myself it was a bit big for a necklace from Amazon when I realised it was flowers. I had by this time decided it had been delivered to the wrong address,but no it was in my name. A lovely Bloom and Wilde bunch of flowers from my nieces just because
