And on saturday, as the sun was shining, I thought I'd light up my fire pit and use it to cook my supper. It was the first time this summer and maybe a smokey meal for one sounds lonely. But I'm a solitary animal by nature and it was peaceful sitting in my garden listening to the world. A small family of long tailed tits were flitting from tree to bush to bush to tree, and a couple of great tits, and a robin dropped into song every so often so my solitude was not without companionship. Oh, and, the music from the bands who were playing in the park was rocking the whole of my side of the city.
Afterwards my hair smelt of being outdoors which always makes me feel happy.
