Monday 27th March 2017
First day back at work in British Summer Time - don't like it.  Was up mega early though and took dog out, fetched papers, saw a headgehog!  Into office a little bit late can't be helped.  Busy day,  Back home for a bit after 5pm.  Took pooch along the line - saw a small not-green woodpecker - will have to see what kind it is but it definitely looked woodpeckerish.  Did a bit in the drum attic.  Our Andrew has lent me his double pedal but I reckon it needs a fair bit of adjustment.

Did a bit in Greenhouse sowed some bits and bobs used one of the large pots the missus got for some sweetpeas for the lotty.   Did a bit of web work, watched a bit of telly.  Off to bed 10.30

Lovely summery sort of a day - pooch was tatered so let her have a kip and give her a bit of shade - bless.

Back home, tea then with dog mithering we went a walk up golf course - still a fair number of folk playing.  Found a few balls all good stuff.  Was dead tired so bed a bit before 10pm.
