    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.

    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.

    More babies at work! So made another little “monster”. This time a rather pink kitty. Any guesses to gender? 😉

    Tried to learn using an old handicraft book of my grans - completely confused me! Turned to YouTube - however did we manage without it?! Havent actually got any wool so used garden string but on my first weekend of trying I’ve managed to make a hat for an elf (or a pekin perhaps!) so I’m fairly hopeful i should be able to learn enough to make the caterpillar.

    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.

    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.

    I have not had a good time the past 10 days in France. However, I was unexpectedly in Nantes at lunchtime yesterday and stumbled on a park, with a lake, complete with lots of wild fowl and some FR chooks. I very happily watched a pair of white crested black polands potter about in the blazing sun, then I saw another breed of cockeral walk very fast (comically) to where a spare white poland hen was wandering about. He flew over the water to join her, but soon after the WC cockeral saw what the other cockeral was up to, so also he walked very fast to join them, spirited his white wife away and all 3 of them walked back to the original hen. I really have missed my own flock and this cheered me up no end!

    We lost Snap this afternoon. Treat man was certain she’d been there when he let them out and I was pretty sure she’d been there when I shut them in at night but now, at corn o clock, nowhere to be seen. I crashed through the undergrowth but no sign of her, went for a walk down the footpath but not far thinking ‘well if she’s not in the garden she’s gone’. Then a phonecall from OH - ‘She’s here! I don’t know where she came from but she’s here!’. Well in that case she can only have been doing one thing. And a fingertip search of ‘the jungle’ eventually led to the find below!

    🤪 What was I on!!! But thinking about it - yep, guaranteed to bring OH into self-imposed solitary confinement whenever chicken things need sorting and it needs 2 of us. Peace on one hand but man flu . . . weldmesh over the bedroom door and egg boxes to make it sound proof! Ta daaaaaaaaaaaa!

    After lunch he just happened to mention that the chickens like grapes. Asked “How did you find that out? They’ve only had chicken food so far.” He replied “I gave them a couple of leftover old grapes”. I frowned and said “From the brand-new box?” He muttered something and wandered off. Later he mentioned they like apples too. Supposedly they got a bit that accidentally fell in the floor as he was eating it 🤔. Crumbly things apples 😂. Hr just asked if I think they’ll be awake at 5am when he’s off to the airport. Seems he bought bacon for a sandwich and wondered if they’d like the scraps. Told him they are not having meat scraps and he looked disappointed. Think he’s a secret fan 😉.

    Dull grey morning so I went to Camden Market because it's always busy, noisy and colourful and I needed a bit of that.

    I'm a vegetarian, so I'll just watch my chickens play in the garden while they sing "We like being alive!" over and over. lol

    There were 3 up there tonight. Going to pool there fun though as next time I take the roof off that partition is coming out and I’m putting two mini trugs into the nesting box to make it easier for two to lay at once. Several are crouching now so hoping for eggs by Easter

    My daughter’s blanket. Finally got a photo of it looking clean and tidy. It has been a bit too well loved of late but I managed to sneak it away to wash

    The snow family. Struggling to find pics that don’t contain other people’s children. There was a 4th made with the earliest powdery snow and he fell apart. Three snow people barely made a dent in the snow. There are parts of the garden where it is still pristine but they Conysin stuff like water barrels. For once I didn’t make snowangels in any bit lacking footprints. Love being what my preteen considers ‘embarrassing’

    Wintery for me too. 7 inches here but in the drifts, otherwise 5 inches. Most of the snow was blown away overnight so easier to trudge around - beautiful though. I love sparkly snow when the sun shines on it.

    I didn’t let others stand in my way today. The staging is down. I cleared the old run area and rescued the slabs for reuse. Lifted the remaining slabs in the greenhouse. Loaded the van with a full load of old pots and stuff that had been dumped in the greenhouse. Hubby took it to the tip for me as I’m still not driving on his way to drop DD for a party. 1 diseased small conifer, a broom, a berry less holly and a rather pathetic rambling rose cut down and dug out New run area measured and marked out. Dug half of it out to a depth of 3 inches but had to give in as the soil is surprisingly dry and the wind was whipping it up into my eyes. Hoping the slabs can go down next weekend and the greenhouse frame can be moved. Hubby looked out at all my hard work and said. “That was a busy day. Didn’t we do well.” He’s lucky I’d put the tools away at that point 😂 Really need to do some constructive gardening at some point instead is just digging up and destroying stuff. Got day lilies, daffodils, tulips bluebells and a few unknown bulbs starting to emerge.

    Now THAT would be SCARY!

    Yes, it's off! The speaker button with the '?' now does nothing, so can't be used to turn Audio Description on again. Presumably the setting on the menu over-rides it.

    Yes, well, I used an indefinite article instead of a noun, making the sentence ambiguous. Schoolgirl error. I have written a lot of reports in my professional life, and edited a lot of other people's work, so when I notice a mistake I can't let it go, although predictive text often makes a mockery of what I intended to write, as does texting, as I routinely hit the wrong key without noticing! Added to which, I am fascinated by grammar, far more than the washing up!

    Love the photos, I've been to both countries and loved them both! I've just been home for 12 days and been super busy. Met us with four vet friends who graduated last year, spent 5 days in Ireland visiting Dublin and Galway where my Grandad was born and then attended a Zoo Vet conference this weekend where I learnt lots and made some new contacts Flew back to uni at 5:45 this morning so feeling pretty tired today!

    This is where I am today. I'm living right opposite this volcano in the North of Japan. It's quite wild here.
