A windy but fine day to take Sam on a good training walk and then working in the garden preparing to trap the invasive moles. To Wroxham with the girls and also to buy seafood. The evening working on my computer charts and journal.
The wind had got up in the night, but the temperatures were still mild and the rain stayed away for my morning run with Sam. I had allowed myself an hour's lay in and the dog was good to wait. In fact, he was also good on the walk; quartering steadily and enthusiastically and being quite obedient, before finding a pheasant in the dyke road near home. He has the gait of a much more mature dog than he was and I hope that this will be the portent of things to come.

I certainly look forward to the dog-training session on Sunday. Out to finish the tightening-up of building bolts and then to tackle the plague of moles that has afflicted the lawn and path alongside Harnser. First rolling the gravel parts down, removing the excess earth and then flattening the grass before setting a couple of mole traps. A late lunch and then time on my computer before and after making a trip to Wroxham to take back the girls’ library books and get another out.
Some nice seafood and salad vegetables with which to prepare a fine tea and then back to the computer this evening. I was reviewing my electronic charts, transferring my own information and then printing out the data. My bath, my journal and then to bed at half-past midnight, tired at all of the computer work but satisfied at the progress.
