I walked up to the town past the woods and noticed they cleared the edge of the woods where it borders the brook, they taken down a Maple and tidied some Hazel too, the leaves were still on the Maple so it couldn't have been down long so I went back and salvaged a couple of bits. They'd made a right pigs ear of cutting it and the best bit was rather split. Still there could be some bows there. Worst case it can be thrown away later.
Emily the cat is doing well, she has her collar off all day now which is great for her mood... those collars are horrid as the interfere with whiskers and ears which stops 'em running about in a normal manner. We are keeping her on a lead in the garden for a little longer, but I'm letting her wander a bit or sit in the cool of the flowerbed without hovering over her.
