The smallest fish tank in the house now only contains L333s, there are still 3 of them. The danios they shared the tank with are now all gone. As the L333s like their meat we never saw any bodies.
The Ls are very shy and we only tend to see more than a tail straight after we have fed them if we sit still half a room away. It makes it special when we do see them. That said Kit and I got a great view of one of them and it stayed still long enough for me to take a quick photo.
I a so pleased with this but it may get harder to get photos of them as we have a major deployment of plants arriving soon.
I have been wanting to update for a while, but there has been sufficiently little going on that I have not felt that there has been a lot to update.
I have been doing a few extra hours, and that has meant that we have payed off some bills more quickly than we thought that we might.
Last week we did our 700th geocache, something I am very pleased with and we would like to hit 1000 in the next month.
We had a mega 24 hour caching spree the other day, we are still writing up the 50+ logs from that, and we will need to finish that tomorrow, but in the prosses we have come to realise that our Geko can not do anything these days, and the etrex is not up to what it was, so we have begun to look at a new GPS, ideally to be got before we head south for a long weekend in June.
The cats are prowling around the house as I write this, both of them look as if they are spoiling for a fight.
We did get our bedroom decorated, but there are still some areas we need to touch up and finish of, and Kit is trying to work out what to paint to go on the walls, decisions to come soon.
We are trying to work out how we can best do the Skeg to Ness series of caches- we want to do this when we are down south- and the shortest time that we can see people’s logs covering is 16 hours, and some more at 18. I would love to do this in one go start to finish and then collapse in to a little heap, but Kit is trying to be more sencible.
The current plan is to drive to Gareth and Penny’s, stay over night with Penny (Gareth will be away), and have an early start the next morning and see how many we can hit.
The bees have died. A combination of a cold winter and possibly a mouse. We are taking some time to think and regroup, and will get more if there is a swarm later in the year.
