We have had some wild weather recently and with the log burner comforting us we have watched some  DVDs about Merlin, Prince Arthur and Camelot letting ourselves into a little bit of magic.

Now I am reading The Lollipop Shoes by Joanne Harris – a follow up to the bewitching novel Chocolat.  There is nothing wrong with a little day dreaming and fantasy.

However this morning, again in the wild and windy weather, I went for a walk up through Taddington and came across the most wonderful sight.   We have seen from home over the last few weeks a flock of birds flying past.  Today I saw at least five hundred fieldfares twisting, wheeling and feeding in the fields.  Twice they flew straight over my head whilst I held my breath in admiration.  Now that really did feel like MAGIC.  I can’t wait to go out again and of course I will have my camera next time.

Tomorrow we meet here for our monthly charity walk and lunch and perhaps we might see them again.  After that I am going on the train to Liverpool to listen to the Philharmonic Orchestra – Brahms and Tchaikovsky – conducted by their now celebrated young russian conducter Vasily Petrenko.  Will that be macigal?  I hope so.
