219 – that used to be the MW frequency for Manx Radio.
Manx Radio. Two! One! Nine!
…was the jingle. I’m sure that you are singing along in your head as I am in mine. Those were, as they like to tell us, the days.
I don’t think you’d advertise a show over there (or anywhere else, really) with that sort of headline right now.
But I digress. Often.
We’re down in Agulhas and I’ve spent the morning cutting back the fynbos and cleaning out the braai area. I did have plans for a mid-afternoon nap, but suddenly I feel that a pre-mid-afternoon nap nap may be called for.
You should hear what I’m got planned for the early evening.
(Actually, I have a couple of Only Connect shows to catch up on…)
It’s been a heavy, disturbed, stressful week and the fresh air, sunshine and peace and quiet are exactly what we needed.
And the wildlife is enjoying the springtime too: skinks, scorpions, a mongoose and several (or more) really large moths around yesterday, together with some White Stork, Glossy Ibis and Ostrich on the way down here. And then, just before a very early bedtime, a pair of Spotted Eagle Owls and some passing Black-Crowned Night Herons yesterday evening.
Idyllic. Idyllic, but all rather tiring. Nap time.
