Abbots Mitre Pub Quiz and Autumn’s arrived

Spent a great evening over at the Abbots Mitre last for the monthly Chilbolton Pub Quiz. Thanks to Andrew for once again organising a great evening and I thought we on a roll until 3 Girls and 2 Blokes let themselves down with two disasterous rounds. OK a quick on Google and yes and I admit Horsell Common is near Woking. The Martian invasion in War of the Worlds starts there and not Hampstead heath as I thought. Congratulations to the Bobby Dazzlers who once again performed to their usual high standard.

Out this morning bright and early with Blue on the common and it was distinctly autumnal with the rain coming down and the two egrets hunched up on the river bed. A reminder that summer is on the way out and the leaves will be soon changing. To be honest thats my favourite time of year, golden frosty mornings walking round the cow common. I just hope we get a few more warm days as its brings people down into the village and into the shop.
