Good Morning

We did get a small sunrise this morning, even if it was a small one. It is a dismal day and rained now and again through the night. The temperatures are also sinking and I believe that Autumn has now definitely arrived. However, it is bearable and I am decked with food supplies so what could possibly go wrong.

Our stores still have no supplies of bird food, although the birds still seem to be thriving. However I was very sly. I crushed the nuts that Mr. Swiss bought without salt and oil and now it has made a welcome change to the diet of the local birds.

The first to arrive was a blue tit, the first I have seen for some time.

The sparrows were not far behind and bird life seems to be getting back to the feeding days in my garden. However, I now only have enough bird food for a day or two, and am hoping that the store now stocks up again. I just miss the bird life in my garden.

I had been having a mobile phone problem over the week-end. Instead of the phone ringing everything was going direct into my combox and no-one could get through. I searched internet for a solution but found none that would work and also explored the Swisscom app on my phone (the Swiss supplier) but nothing helped. Mr. Swiss found no solution and so I called No. 2 son who is good at that sort of thing, but he also could not help. Eventually I contacted the helpline for my telephone supplier. I was lucky that they were operating on a Sunday and I only had to wait a few minutes for help, which was also surprising. The lady was very helpful, but as we do not have a landline as well, she needed another phone to do her test. Luckily she could use Mr. Swiss mobile and suddenly it worked. She got direct through to my phone with no combox problem and now everything is back to normal. She could not explain it and neither could I, but I am glad that everything is OK again.Basically I rarely need my telephone connection, just for calls to and from the doc or other official places. I mostly use Facetime or Whatsapp which works quite well and costs nothing.

Otherwise nothing special to report. Today will be a day at home and tomorrow I will be seeing my hairdresser again, after almost a year. Lockdown and isolation has its advantages, and I used the time to let is grow. It is now more or less long enough and all the same length to have a good cut. Our Autumn fair in town had its last days yesterday and I am not sorry.I can now visit the town with no problems with the fair installations.

I am now off to have a conversation with my hoover and other household appliances. I will also be indulging in a bread baking session some time this morning. Have a good start to the week.
