    Holiday season, tourists and so on

    London is awash with tourists. They get in the way and in the rain you have to be careful they dont take your eye out with brollies. 🙄

    Went to feed girls today. Unlocking gate and sneezed loudly. Floss glared at me and blokked at me crossly. That's me told.

    Barista courses

    Someone on here mentioned a while back they had sent their kids on one. My 18 year is struggling to find work on his gap year. Thought this might put him one step ahead of others. I am not a rich lady so not a pricey one if at all poss. Thank you oh wise ones.

    He looked like a power ranger . I wouldn't want to work in a bank if they didn't take their helmets off. I like to think I'm a *****y broad but sadly I am a big time wuss.

    Well - sat in traffic this morning at 7.15am. Listening to radio 2 and willing lights to change and a motorcyclist pulled up on passenger side complete with visor down and stared into car. I always lock myself in day and night. All my bravado evaporated as I stared thinking " what do I do if he breaks window, or damages car" He leaned over and flicked my passenger side mirror back out - I had folded it in the night before when parking on road to prevent damage. I mouthed "thank you" and sighed with relief. I am a wuss and guilty of thinking the worse. Oh dear

    So sorry - very fragile creatures. As a child I had 2 which didnt even reach 2 years. Glad you had a nice vet and was with him. XX

    Do you ever regret not having your phone to hand when your animals do something funny. OH found some other devices on BHWT which are like blinkers and so much easier to fit.than bumpa bits. Penny wasnt impressed with our efforts at the bumpa bits and got them off in minutes. We fitted them in past to a hen with a wonky beak (like Rod Hulls emu) no problem Anyway one morning this week having fitted this gadget and feeling happy with ourselves we sat having coffee in garden (actually wasnt raining) watching Penny and Floss free range. Floss has been unwell and is hopefully on mend - laying again after moult and her new bum feathers are growing back so we didnt want Penny pecking her and drawing blood again. So there we are watching Penny with her blinkers. Floss comes up stops short and stares intently at Penny. She looks away and then stares again and you can imagine the conversation would not be unlike a mum staring at her teenage daughters skirt the size of a belt. " what the hell are you wearing? that really isnt your colour you know" we were laughing so much . Floss then walks off looking bemused. Penny has got used to her new device. I found a video on You Tube of a line of hens with these things. Obviously all peckers. Sorry not sure could do that as not very good at technology. If you look at Youtube "anti pecking visors" by Farm pride you will see the lovely girls sporting their new shades. Sorry mods please delete my post which I seem to have managed to post again. Told you I was a technophobe.

    Hope you get some advice. They are very frail. Its worse when your kids are younger. Hated having to explain it all. Many of our fish went to "fish hospital" and came back "cured" Good luck

    Hamster with a cold

    Poor experience of Hamsters and vets but I was a child over 40 yrs ago I hasten to add. We took Tiny to vet with a cold. He clipped her claws made them bleed and next day she was dead. I had a deep mistrust of vets for years after that. I was convinced they were hamstopaths (I made that up). I hope Hugo improves. They are not strong animals. . The Spanish vet we saw recently with Floss our hen had no idea - OH had to tell him what to give her. At least he listened - he was going back to Spain to live so if he hadnt have listened we wont be able to find him to complain . Sorry not much help.
