Winter Scavenger Hunt

Only a few days left, we finish on 21st March.

Firstly I want to say a big thank you to all those of you who have joined in with Eileen and myself in doing this challenge, I've enjoyed doing it, despite being mostly otherwise engaged, I hope you have too.

Secondly, I want to apologise for not being very pro-active during this period, I have had a couple of distractions. My 90 year old Mum was having a few problems in her digestive system and needed to visit a couple of specialists and have some tests, I think she was feeling worse than she actually was because of the fear of the unknown. It transpires that she has a hiatus hernia and some (benign) polyps, she has been given medication and has been told that they don't need to see her again for 5 years - which has put her mind at rest. Also, my latest grandchild, due mid-April, was delivered late Feb by induction at 34 weeks for medical reasons, and as she was very tiny (4lb 12oz) she spent the first two and a half weeks of her life in the neo-natal unit of the local hospital. However, she was allowed home last Friday, just in time for Mother's Day, so FO and CH's little family are now all together at last.

I'm hoping that I've got enough time, now that I'm not pre-occupied, to finish the challenge, 6 subjects in 6 days, should be doable.

In the mean time, here's one I took earlier, another Street Musician. He's often at the entrance to our small shopping mall, and I love his repertoire as I can sing along with most of his offerings.

So pleased to hear your news that your little granddaughter is now home. A precious time for you all. Hope your mum is a little better now. Your street musician certainly dresses for the part!

I've got two left, although I have two alternates, so I may be complete. Need the street musician and door knocker.
Glad to hear your life is calming down.

I've only just seen this post for some reason. Sorry to hear that your mum has been unwell but thankful that she doesn't need to be seen for 5 years ... not bad for a 90 year old. Lovely to hear that your new granddaughter is now at home.

Hope things calm down for all of you and that you have a stress free rest of the year.
