Tuesday is fine. I can cope with Tuesday. And it looks like my cunning plan of making it rain by watering everything yesterday, loudly mentioning having a BBQ, and leaving all my car windows open at work is going to succeed.

Wednesday is a bit of a meh day. Its like you know the weekend is getting closer but someone insisted on dragging it out a bit and making you wait. I could do without Wednesday. Perhaps we could merge it into Saturday? A kind of Satnesday that lets you get all the housew**k done and still have energy to enjoy the weekend.

Thursday. Well that one might be a bit more interesting I guess. I mean I get to play with shiny things such as the steam pump at the museum if nothing else.


But its just not Saturday.

I can't believe bekkie hughes went for a walk without me I had my lead ready and everything!!

Not enough tea Mrs. G that's the problem! Too many thoughts going around my head is the problem!

Is it the weekend yet? Why is it not the weekend yet?

Tootles - you'll find that city birds cheep a lot louder than country birds. They've evolved as it were to be heard over the traffic so I'm sure they'll be fine!

Most likely its a fledging (as you say it was the size of a small adult) fresh from the nest and needed to work on its flying skills a little. Its parents will be nearby watching it and will have mostly likely returned the moment you disappeared.

You did the right thing.

Clari - garden fork? an old one?

You don't want me wasting the rum do you? I think there's a few broken bricks in the garden maybe they'll do!

Who needs romance when there's a job to be done, a shovel should do it.
Shower, hair wash every night and Vaseline up the nose for hayfever sufferers ( just an excuse to wake him up).

I'm not damaging my favourite shovel Mrs. G! I might try late on Wednesday night - bonus being if he says no I get the bed (and the fan) to myself. MMmmmm nice cool bed ideal with this heat! I can also weaken him with rum and coke

I tried giving him Vaseline one year - you should have seen the mess it makes of pillow slips and handkerchiefs. Normally Piriton works fine but he seems to be struggling at the moment. Very glad that I don't get hayfever it seems awful! The lad behind me at work is really struggling - I know this because I've started buying him tissues and hayfever tablets!!
