Monday 2nd April 2012 - Cai has been ill for the last few days and is currently off school and sleeping.
It has been a hard couple of days, Cai's monitor has been beeping a lot the last few nights, yesterday we thought he had recovered but last night and this morning proved us wrong.
The pond gets a clean, it may still look grubby to the untrained eye ;-) but it is looking better and don't forget the water is around 2.2 metres deep and you can clearly see the bottom. there is also a lot of activity, we have at least 10 newts and some frogs, however the newts have eaten the frog spawn.
Isn't spring lovely the way the plants and trees just come to life
