It turned out that the gunman lurking around outside Heather's school was a pest control officer. False alarm.

Still struggling with a bad back, although it really is a lot better than it was. I'm hoping to take Pip a walk tomorrow. I'm getting a bit antsy cooped up indoors.

Here's  a pic from a couple of weeks ago, when the family Stone visited the animal sanctuary attached to Fletcher's Garden Centre. We went to get some shrubs and heathers for the back garden.

I adore barn owls.

Lots of new books on the way. I knew about Graham Joyce's The Year of the Ladybird, but I learned on Rachel Green's LJ that Iain Bans's The Quarry will be out in a few weeks too. Knowing it will be his last will make reading it a bittersweet experience. I may have parted company with his space operas but his contemporary fiction is always a treat. And while on Amazon I saw Terry Pratchett has a new title on the way, called A Slip of the Keyboard. It's a good job my birthday is in July. :)

Pre-ordered the new Sigur Ros album Kveikur direct from the band's website. Hopefully they get more of my pennies than if I went to iTunes or 7digital.

Bought Dungeon Siege III in a Steam sale as it is a top-down RPG similar to Torchlight and Van Helsing. I have just completed Van Helsing and am in the mood for more of the same.

The Apprentice made good TV again tonight.
