Pair of Blackcaps

Still really numb at the moment after last week’s shock so I am trying to do things to distract my thoughts. So you will see I have had a busy few days.

The title is because I am optimistic we may have Blackcaps nesting in the garden seeing both male and female around.

Friday night went to a superb gig at the Colston Hall Bristol. We saw Jon Boden and the Remnant Kings and it certainly surpassed expectations. Jon Boden was the front man for the band Bellowhead who I have written about previously.

Yesterday went by train to watch the Mighty Hatters final game at Notts County with 4,500 fellow Hatters. Terrific rocking joyful atmosphere and despite it being 0-0 we played some wonderful football. Possibly one of the best ever away days I’ve been on! Impressed by everything Notts County did to welcome us and their fans were really generous. The pub was excellent too right by the brewery

Today I foolishly went on a cycle ride all the way round the River Severn with my pal Martin. 5 hours in the saddle and 74 miles covered, with all the hills of the Forest of Dean. The picture is a selfie (yuck) with Tintern Abbey in the background-I do look miserable but squinting a bit holding the phone and looking into the sun!  The body is tired now!
