  3. Not everything to do with lockdown is bad. For instance, I have to work from home at the moment, meaning I have my garden in front of me at all times. If that weren't the case, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to capture this shot of a woodpecker chick freshly out of the nest being fed by its parents. Nothing, IMHO, quite so beautiful as parents looking after offspring.

  8. People are so lovely; I stopped yesterday to give first aid to a bloke who had taken off a big strip of his scalp when he collided with a road sign. While I was kneeling on the ground beside him, stemming the bleeding - two ladies came over to offer assistance. One walked the man's distressed 9 year old daughter home to her mum, the other brought water and blankets. Then a police officer stopped to help, and when the ambulance hadn't arrived after 40 minutes, he ferried the injured man (and me, compressing the top of his head) to A&E. Made a bit of a mess of his patrol car! The injured man's wife has just called round and given me a JLP gift card as thank you, they are so sweet...... he has a monumental headache. Faith in folks restored. Karma will bite the bum of the youth who saw the accident, laughed and walked on by.

  9. I’ve been so excited because my present was massive - and inside is brilliant!!! A beautiful crocheted winter cushion, 2 decorations to hang on my tree (Duck wasn’t in the box but she’s been in for some indoors sunbathing by the French windows - beautiful day today ), a toy for each of our cats and some tasty looking Dutch (🤔🤣) treats. Thankyou so much I love them all (as do the cats - I fear for the long term survival of the crocheted mice!)

  10. HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY 🐣🐣🐣🐣 Thankyou so much Easter bunny for my lovely treats! So prettily wrapped too in lovely chicken napkins. I have an absolutely brilliant easter bunny pincushion - just fantastic and has lots of little bits and pieces in, and a gold bunny who will be coming to work with me tonight and may not make it home again! As you can see Duck and Camilla were as excited to get the parcel open as me

  11. Thank you so much for my box of goodies. It was really fun to open. I was especially pleased with the Thin Blue Line wristband. That was very thoughtful. Coincidentally those are the colours of my nail varnish from a metal night out last night so that looks smart. I think the multi purpose scarf and the fingerless gloves will be well used. I was thinking of getting a pair for when I want to take photos in cold weather so that's brilliant. I will share my chocolate with DD who also loves chocolate. Thanks again.

  13. Got an email this morning to say my CV and cover letter have been forwarded to local practices after I had a phone interview for a graduate programme There's one practice I really like the look of and that I think I'd fit in with the team but trying not to set my heart on that one... I have a phone interview next week with another vets I like and a third place that I haven't heard back from yet.

  14. This made me smile - removing one of the broodies from the nest, to go in The Cage of Shame, and she balanced in my hand by fanning her tail like a beautiful flower. She's a gold pencilled wyandotte bantam

  22. Bizarre wildlife encounter yesterday... I was in my work van driving into Plymouth, approaching a large roundabout with about 6 lanes of traffic approaching traffic lights. People in front of me in my Lane kept leaving the lane for no reason that I could see, but when I got almost to the lights, in the middle of this busy road, was a sparrow hawk plucking a pigeon!! I got to within about 3 feet of it in the van and it just glared at me and then went back to it’s plucking!! I was about to do what everyone else had and go around it, but then I thought...’What if the next person doesn’t care about wildlife and just drives over it?’ So I put my high viz jacket on, turned on my flashing beacon and got out. I very nearly touched the hawk before it finally flew off looking very cross. Then I thought I’d better fling the dead pigeon to the side of the road in case the hawk came back, so I picked it up by the tail and felt it twitch (which was a bit grim), but flung it over the car next to me (hmmm - sorry to that person!) - and then as the pigeon got to the top of the arc - it flew!!!!! I hadn’t looked at it very carefully and actually thought it had no head!!! My face must’ve been a picture because all the people in cars around me were killing themselves laughing 😂

  23. A moth goes into a podiatrist’s office. The doctor asks the moth, “What seems to be the problem?” The moth says, “Doc, I don’t know where to start. I feel like my whole life has been a waste of time. I’ve been at the same job for twenty years and I don’t just hate it, I’m revolted by it. I can barely summon the strength to drag myself in every day but I have no choice because I’m in debt up to my compound eyes. The idea of doing this job for years more just makes me sick." "I’ve grown apart from my wife. She’s no longer the woman I loved, and I can barely stand to be around her but I feel guilty for feeling that way about her. Doc, it just eats me up inside." "My daughter’s shacked up at eighteen with a guy I can’t stand who’s terrible for her and she dropped out of school, but she won’t listen to reason and it breaks my heart. And my son… Doc, I just don’t know if I love my own son, because he reminds me of everything I hate about myself. I look into his eyes and see the same digusting, snivelling cowardice I know everyone sees in mine. I can’t even work up the courage to pull out my gun and blow my own brains out. I feel like my entire life is nothing more than a fragile web of lies just barely holding me back from the screaming abyss." The podiatrist says to the moth, “You do seem to have a lot of problems, and it's clear you need professional help. But I’m just a podiatrist; you need to see a therapist, a psychiatrist even. Why did you come to me?" “The light was on." Badoom, tsh. I'll get my coat.

  24. Made another lovey for a pregnant colleague. It’s made of a very soft and snuggly yarn. But which leaves a lot of blue fiber bits all over the place, because it fringes A LOT at the yarn ends.

  30. Ok so I waited 😇 Now I have a year in my eye as I opened the box! And found this gorgeous dog! And then some scribbles for my face. What a brilliant idea And then some biscotti made from my swappers girls eggs and friends bee's honey. Scrubby has made himself at home. I'm going to plant the card with my grandson and watch the flowers grow. Thank you my Easter bunny what a fabulous craftperson you are. Xx

  31. I've started making my own reed diffusers. They're nice and easy if you have the pre-made base mix. I started after I found a really nice 'designer' one in a garden centre the other week which was *amazing* - but cost £28!! So I just started making my own for a third of the price! lol Well, here's the Peckingham Palace update. All built and ready. We re-used some of the panels of the MK1 run to create the enclosure at the front. And a nice big new hen house means that I'll be getting a few more hens too. Planning on collecting them this weekend. 🙈 🙈 🙈 😂

  36. I was out shopping the other day and I noticed staff chasing a shoplifter down the street. The thief glanced backwards to see far the staff were behind him. Since the thief wasn’t looking where he was going, he ran straight into someone. Unfortunately for the thief, the person they ran into was a on duty (in full uniform) police officer! 😂 The thief was promptly detained and handcuffed in record time!

  37. Husbands? Children? Travel Agents? Dogs/Cats? Electricians? The bloke behind the deli counter in Waitrose? Goodness, I'd love to know 😏! What a teaser!!!!!!!! I have been putting out a box of books on our front wall as the charity shops have been shut and out bedroom is right above; we have had the window open in the hot weather. I have been in hysterics at some of the comments overheard. One chap was out with the dog and clearly decided to 'phone his wife as he trawled through the box and updated her on what was available.........'No nothing sexy but there is a Jilly Cooper..oh and a few Dick Francis. That sounds a bit sexy....shall I grab one? There's one on natural cleaning. OK, not your thing then. It's a very eclectic selection, they must be a funny bunch'. I really wasn't sure how to take that!!!!!!!!!!

  39. Buy the biggest run you can afford for the space you have. Plan to cover it as that will sometimes be necessary if we get an Avian Flu outbreak. A couple of years ago we had to keep them in the run 24/7 from December until April. Best to think ahead even if the eventuality seems remote at the time.

  44. Thank you so much to my secret Easter bunny, I have a lovely knitted bag filled with chocolate treats. There are also 3 sachets of which I believe are bath salts if Google translate is to be trusted It's great that we all take part in the swaps and there is a huge amount of crafty talent between us all, thank you Luvachicken for doing all the organising and thank you ladies for taking part and making it all possible. Bon Paque as they say in these parts.

  46. Because we're on Hokkaido and it's still snowy here cherry blossom isn't as obvious as further south. It's still quite wintery here. Have had lots of smiles from our baby today. It was his first big adventure out and we went up a mountain. I saw the volcano from the plane.

  47. Run within a run! There is a badger here so I'm more concerned that he would make light work of the wire (half inch weld mesh). It's had more adaptions using pallets inside since then to make it more windproof - need to make it a little more waterproof.

  49. Just had to tell someone! Our 8th grandchild has just been born! A girl, Skylar, 8Ibs. Obviously the most beautiful baby in the world! I was one of 4 girls, and I had 3 boys and a girl and now have 6 granddaughters and two grandsons. The boys belong to my daughter. Strange how gender works between generations.

  50. It was my dad's birthday so celebrations were always happening - nearly didn't one year with the hurricane gusts, but it died down and over we went in the evening. He liked writing "poetry" and called himself Sideburns. Here is one of his little rhymes: Once while walking through a wood, I picked bluebells by the score. Then I was fined for trespassing I won't go there any more! I did put "poetry" in inverted commas! There are worse ones but children love the rude ones (well anything with a toilet included set them off laughing - and as I have never grown up - I did too). Although I do rather like Of Mice and Men.
