Another Diocesan Review meeting – in Crieff this time. I remain surprised by the [large] number of people who turn up, seem genuinely interested and ask fairly searching questions. The raising of expectations is, of course, something of a two-edged sword but surely a risk worth taking. The opposite is, of course, a way of ensuring that nobody is ever disappointed.
Meanwhile, in the safari park, I have today narrowly missed two of the Flopsy Bunnies. There were two woodpeckers on the Blogstead fence this morning. And a pheasant strolled through the garden late this afternoon. Alison has put lurid tape on the fence to alarm the deer – and Poppy is doing her best on the lion poo front. After all, she is related.
