The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge is much more exciting than it sounds. There are otters and water voles, ducklings wandering wherever they like, curious geese that follow you around, especially if you've invested in a bag of bird seed, noisy flamingos, a variety of pretty feathered friends and wild flowers. Had a really good time there with not many other humans as the weather was iffy at best, but we didn't get wet. It was great.

In the evening, as the rain clattered down on our house, we watched the manga film, Laputa - Castle in the Sky. Another Hayao Miyazaki film, he mixes the innocence of children, vaguely environmental messages and amazingly out there fantasy settings so well, even Mr Bethnoir liked this one. Truly having your pig tails shot off by a baddie who looks like Scott Walker, and is voiced by Luke Skywalker, is one of the worst thing that can happen to you

Today we have been seeing lots of relatives and being very careful not to say anything that could be construed as critical. I think we did very well, sigh of relief until Christmas and relax. Hope your weekends have been good.
