Do we all do this do you think? Say I'm not superstitious but... I don't walk under ladders, or like Friday 13th, or put up an umbrella indoors.
Well I'm not superstitious but... over the past year, starting at the crematorium at a friend's funeral last January, I have on seven or eight occasions seen a single magpie (we say 'one for sorrow, two for joy' when we see a magpie). I always look for the second one, saying - sometimes out loud (!) Where's your mate? We've had enough sorrow, where's the joy?
Of course I know it's nonsense (a bit like yesterday's quiz!) but all the same my heart leapt when two flew past the window the other day and I smile each time I think of it.
No photograph today but there are some wonderful ones to be seen here.
