Everybody seems to be busy these days. I mean that in a general way, of course, but it seems to be true. I follow a few blogs on general wildlife, bushcraft and related topics, and being busy seems to be a general theme at the moment (like Pablo, John and Steve, for instance).
This is a roundabout way of saying that I’ve been too busy myself to get outside or do anything wildlife related. The last few weekends have been busy with making cider and a series of (very enjoyable) social events. On the work front I’ve just come back from a week-long trip to Saudi Arabia (a very interesting country for all sorts of reasons). I’ve helped Mrs BWM plaster a wall (among her many talents she’s a trained plasterer). I’m up against a deadline to finish my logbook for my professional qualifications (I’m in the process of becoming a Chartered Psychologist). To cap it all off I’ve started trail running again in preparation for a half marathon at the end of October (fool!). All of this has eaten up my time lately.
Busy busy busy. No damn cat, no damn cradle.
Hopefully things will quieten down soon and I’ll get back into the woods soon. Promise.
