We have a volunteer in the house. Gemma's boyfriend Aaron is decorating Ellen's room for her when he is not busy.He stripped wallpaper last night,today he starts painting.

Yesterday was the coldest Easter Sunday on record here and today feels even colder. I was going to try for a first cut on the grass but the ground was frozen when I tested it earlier and besides it is too damn cold out there.

Here is a photo of an Eider Duck I snapped yesterday on my walk

Fact of the day
About one in four animals on earth is a beetle. One in five of the Travelling Wilburys was a Beatle.
