Day 299 – 26th October – Accessory Arrival

Day 299 20181026

The bits that I ordered for the new mobile phone arrived today. Screen protector and case. The screen protector is different from the type I normally use. It’s possible that they haven’t produced any film screen protectors and will in due course, but this one was a tempered glass one. Having never tried one before I was slightly cautious, but so far I’m happy. It certainly was able to be applied without any trouble, or more importantly bubbles forming. The case is the type I normally get. It doe hid what is a very nice back to the phone which is meant to help with grip, but the case itself will protect the corners better and on the rare occasion the phone takes a bump, will absorb the shock better. Now all I need to do is transfer everything from the old phone to the new!

Day 81 – 22nd March – Pulling Up Sticks

Day 81 20180322

No, I’m not moving, despite the meaning of the phrase. However I have quite literally been pulling up sticks. These ones formed the animal deterrent by being stuck en masse into the new flowerbed I created towards the end of last summer. They seem to have done a fairly good job and there’s only been a couple of times where I’ve seen evidence of some digging. The flowers and plants are now establishing themselves and I’m hoping with that with the area having been difficult to walk though, that the foxes and squirrels continue to leave it alone.
