Access denied!!

Disaster of the small variety struck yesterday. Little Nellie developed a defect. Runs but does not obey commands from her cage or from the ground. Had to rescue Coddy twice yesterday.

This morning I was involved with paperwork and basically catching up with correspondence etc. …

Gateway Access 8th April 007

Tuesday 9th difficult access overcome

  A real tight fit today! Was windy on the sea side so erred on safety and worked within the confines of the South block courtyard in the lee of the building. Great access afforded. But only just!
