    Then what's the bloody point?

    Bake 'em, drill 'em, string 'em, and encourage your daughter to terrorize the neighbourhood boyz with 'em. And buy yourself a nice Thai conker tree for the garden.

    8 days to go...


    Nothing says it's time to get back to Thailand more than my view out of the office window today.

    It's minus 1 and snowing, and I'm out of food so have to walk up to the shop tonight.

    And I'm nearly out of tea bags.

    ^ Only 7 days to go now Ootai... and by my arithmetic that's just a week!

    Only 7 more nights here...

    I'll miss it when I've gone... NOT!



    When I came outside this morning there were tracks in the snow outside the door. I've got a really good tracking book at home that shows all the different spoor animals leave. Wish I'd brought it now.

    I'm pretty sure this is hare... there's a few hopping around most mornings.



    This I think is deer. He must have been snuffling around in the night eating my conkers. This is right under the horse chestnut tree.



    And that is where he came from.



    They're a hardy lot, these Swedes. This girl jogged past while I was having enough trouble just staying vertical. I had a plate of spaghetti carbonara for my lunch in one hand and my phone in the other... nearly went over a few times and lucky I made it in at all, to be honest. It was sheet ice where the snow plough had been.



    Dog...



    Human...



    And bicycle. But WTF goes cycling in this?

    I just read Horse chestnuts are poisonous to horses funnily enough... but some deer and wild boar can stomach them. Doubt they'd be good around your mutts...

    And those footprints outside your window...look like a goodbye greeting from Mo and the Mademoiselle

    Firstly, I do hope your final week and then travel all go to plan.

    Secondly, isn't that track a bit close to the fence to be a bicycle. Not that I have any better suggestions. Best call in the TD CSI team.

    You got me thinking Shutree, so I went outside to check. I'm having real trouble getting much work done now.

    These strange tracks lead in and out from a small bicycle park, and interestingly since early this morning there are a few more tracks as well.

    I imagine that maybe someone wheeled out their bike before jumping on and cycling off, although to be fair I haven't actually seen a bicycle yet.

    which judging by the complete lack of footprints prints, is a flying man.

    ^ That's a very good point as well.

    Maybe we need Joe 90's input? I have no idea how close it's possible to cycle past a fence.

    You could use your last few days to experiment.



    Since the tracks are in and out of a bicycle park it doesn't seem useful to enquire further. Although the lack of footprints is intriguing ...

    Upon closer inspection, that looks like one footprint, on the line of the fence. Maybe a very tall cyclist with a very long stride.

    Put down a bear-trap and hide it under the snow.






    You'll soon get your answer.

    Ha ha! But who's to say those aren't my footprints!

    The big ones that is, not the small ones. I want to be quite clear on that.
