I wasn't sure what these were so asked around on facebook. The general consensus is that they are acorns from some Asian species of oak.

I went out in the rain again at 9:45 to view a studio flat for rent. It was a nice enough place, but tiny: smaller footprint than the 2 rooms I have at the moment, unfurnished (my current place is furnished) and it would cost me 30% more than I currently pay. I need somewhere a little larger. Oh well, I have until February to find somewhere, so will keep looking.

Fingers crossed you find exactly what you need sooner rather than later. How often do flats become available in your town?

One bedroom accommodation to rent is fairly rare, and often overpriced. I've only seen four or five affordable places in the last 6 months.

Amazingly, this afternoon a cheaper flat came available for which I have asked for a viewing appointment and I was told of the possibility of another place owned by the friend of a friend.

It's strange at this time of year; with children off school and it being holiday season there are frequent short spells with no traffic during what is usually rush hour.

I paused for a look around on Steamer Quay and was rewarded by seeing a kingfisher zip along downstream between Vire Island and Steamer Quay, always a joy.
