In sharp contrast, the UK will be electing Police and Crime Commissioners for the first time on 15 November. That is just 9 days away and yet not a single leaflet has dropped onto our mat from any of the candidates. I wonder what the turnout will be? Will the overkill in US leave a bored or annoyed public at home, while the underkill in England have the same effect? Just wondering.
I was wondering about a few other things this morning: why do things go wrong just when you need them most? A vital piece of my sewing machine flew off just as I was putting the finishing touches to a Christmas present I'm making. I spent thirty minutes or so trying to put it back but could not find a way; I called my husband to have a look and he fixed it in thirty seconds! Why is that? I also wondered why I never seem to have time to sit at my desk these days and when I do get an opportunity, why is that I can't think of anything to write about?
Next day, we went to Harcourt Arboretum which is just a short drive from my daughter's house. The children are frequent visitors there and each season fills them with awe and wonder at the changes in the trees and wildlife:
|Ben likes to use his "innoclers"|
|Millie gets close up with the magnifying glass|
|A Grumpy up a tree? How did he get in here?|
Isn't it all just wonderful?
