The Northern Autumnal Equinox and the Harvest 'full moon' both occur today which is a rare occurance. It hasn't happened since 1991 and they won't fall together at the same time again until 2029.

A mixed day today - The 30th Great North Run took place - everyone did very well.
It was also the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain - there was a service at Westminster Abbey and a Spitfire and Hurricane flypast.
And lastly it's 'Talk Like a Pirate Day'!

As well my own seven cats we get the odd neighbourhood cat turning up to eat our cat food. An un-neutered ginger and white tom often ends up on our doorstep, I don't know who owns him or what his name is so we call him 'Big Ginge'. He's a lovely natured cat but his one big fault is that he sprays if he gets in the house - not good.

Half way through September and it feels like autumn already, the leaves on the trees are turning yellow and children have started to collect conkers.
During the Summer Sarah grew some lovely sunflowers, unfortunately the snails also loved them and chewed all the leaves.
I managed to get a few snaps with my new camera - I'm still getting to grips with it so pictures are a bit hit and miss.

I had a mammogram today - part of the NHS breast screening programme. Probably not the usual stuff for a blog but it was the first one I've had and must have been devised by a man - why else would you think it was a good idea to stuff sensitive parts of your body between two plates then attempt to squash them flat! I notice they don't do this for testicular screening...lol
