A few weeks back I took part in the RSPB’s bird watch. I sat down and watched and counted the birds that visited my garden. I have to say that word must have got around as to what I was doing, as there seemed to be a lack of birds of all varieties who frequent the feeders in the garden normally! No collared doves, no magpies or long tailed tits!
The other day I was surprised to read that suicide is the biggest cause of death of British men under 50 years of age. I was expecting it to be heart disease or cancer. And yet, on reflection, should I be so surprised?
Only once have I made a New Year’s resolution – actually I made two resolutions one New Year’s Eve, and before noon the next day I realised I’d broken both and decided never to bother again!
However, it is always good to have something to aim for, maybe it is to lose the extra pounds put on over Christmas – heyho!
