Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Leslie Monk, the long suffering.

Platinum Crested Buzzard
Bill Oddy's Nature Watch Programme has become essential viewing in the Monk House.
We avidly follow the progress of a nesting box of blue jays, 100,000 Scottish Gannets, and a playful set of badgers that come out at 8.45 every night.
Only the BBC would take this risk at prime time. I particularly enjoy the anxiety of Bill Oddy, when the badgers refuse to appear on queue.
Mrs Monk, on half term break gets "her roots done". I'm surprised by the shade of blonde. Just when you might think she couldn't get blonder, she makes her entrance like Jean Harlow.
I'm now given to calling her the Platinum Crested Buzzard.

Return visit to our favourite garden characterised by what is not there, ...no geraniums.
Unfortunately spoilt by too many grey-crested coach-parties, many of whom had migrated in flocks, from faraway lands.
