Wednesday 1: Wow. I went to make a blood donation today and was rejected because my haemoglobin count was too low. It was 12.7 and their lower limit is 13. It’s the first time I’ve ever been rejected, and all I thought was, “OK, I’ll just go home then”. Looking back on my most recent blood test two weeks ago, it was 12.1 – their range is 12.6 to 17.4, so it probably have been flagged then. At least now it’s back in range.

Tuesday 7: For several weeks, we have been trying to capture a squirrel doing his mating call. Today we were successful.

Wednesday 8: Today we had another squirrel visit, The short video shows Holly not quite sure what to do after it had wandered past her.
