Gardenbirder said:Best wishes to you and to Mrs PR. Between birding and gardening and giving Mrs PR a hand with things, I expect you may find your time very well filled and fulfilling. We are enjoying retirement, despite the Covid thing.
Thank you Ann from both of us.
On the good news front, Mrs PR is making good progress, and I'll be back to work next week, but hopefully, by the end of next week, near normal service be be resumed.

Kind regards, Ann
Gardenbirder said:Good to hear Mrs PR is making good progress and I hope that continues. As for you going back to work, I must have missed something--sorry. Thought I read you were retiring. Whatever, I hope you have and will have what you wished for!
Currently I was considering early retirement, as an update, the consideration has been placed as an application, which I know is undergoing review. I should hear something later this coming week.
Well, back to lockdown again, and hopefully, no more Furlough between now and the end of the year.
Mrs PR is still making good progress, and the chat with the physio last week was promising, all seems to be going very well, though she has been told not to get too carried away, endorsed by myself as well.
The garden has been very quiet, even the feeders aren't being visited, much, except for the grey squirrels, so not many photos to share with you all.
However, a blue tit on the nut feeder
A robin, one of this years young I think, but only a wild guess
and later, hiding in next doors bushes waiting for a safe moment to nip onto a seed feeder...
The garden is looking very autumnal
The cherry tree goes a nice golden yellow at this time of year, but sadly the sun hasn't made an appearance to get th best of the colours
Next door and neighbouring gardens also looking autumnal....
And to finish with, some autumn skies....
Stay safe everyone, and I'll catch you all soon.
Gardenbirder said:Thanks, Mike, I'll repeat myself--hope the result of the review is what you wanted.
Thank you and my apologies, I had overlooked that bit.
I think the time is to move on, I don't see my employer not approving the application, particularly as they are looking to reduce the head count and our mortgage is paid, so it'll give some security to younger employees.
No apology needed, Mike--Sorry that I wasn't clear; I wasn't thinking you had overlooked anything at all. Simply reinforcing my wish that you get what you want--lol! And it sounds like you may, happily.
Wonderful pictures in your newest set!
No worries, no apologies required Ann, I was actually getting my ear chewed by Mrs PR, a very important matter, tonights dinner, and thank you on the pictures.
