~just a quick rant~
i had set today aside to spend the morning working on my present essay on how the sixties were distinctive and what significant changes the time brought about,
then i was going to spend a few hours in a deck chair sitting on the little patio swampy has made with some reclaimed slabs from our neighbour
i was planning of sitting and reading and listening to the birds~just relaxing really.
however i am having doubts about that now
we are not far from yeovil where there is the royal naval air station and on a regular basis they have training days and today is one of them.
they generally have one, two or three jets out practicing for a day and i suppose because of the valleys providing a good training ground for flying low our little village is on the flight path.
at the moment they are flying fairly high, but low enough that the noise is distracting~i am not sure that will last as it is slowly getting louder so i imagine this afternoon we will have some very low level flying.
one day i was hanging out some washing, saw a speck heading towards me and a jet passed so low i could read every bit of writing on its wings.
thank goddess they dont do it that often!
i imagine they are making the most of the good weather and of course they have to practice somewhere...
on a happier note our ancient rayburn is having some minor repairs and a much needed full service next week!
this picture is taken from the Aga/Rayburn website where you can 'identify your rayburn'! turns out this is a 1950's model that took over from the rayburn no/3!!!
anyway back to work before the sounds of the jets becomes too distracting...
