I know it may seem like I “doth protest too much”, but I really DON’T spend all my time at the window ………
……. but since Santa very kindly left us a pair of one eye binoculars for Christmas, it would only look rude not to avail myself of them at …… erm …… every possible interesting opportunity.
So yesterday I spent a very interesting five minutes or so watching a gentleman across the river undertaking a very manly pursuit, to wit, sawing logs, chopping logs would have been more romantic, but there again, we live in a modern age with modern tools which make such tasks easier.
……. how utterly romantic is that? I think he may live in the marina as I am sure I have also seen him collecting said logs to, I presume, burn on a stove on his barge, it all paints such an idyllic picture, in some ways I almost wish we had an open fire at The Towers ………. But as I said at the beginning, I don’t stand twitching at the nets at the window all day long.
