Hedgehogs

Posted: 30/09/2015 at 22:30

We found out today that our hedgehog visitor is living in the garden (one noisy dog!) And my beloved partner choking on how much a hedgehog home costs to buy is now about to be harassed into building me one (after all he wont want to remove hedgehog anger from the dog).

Can anyone tell me the advantages of certain styles (some have a tunnel AND two chambers, others just the one chamber), and whether decking wood (I.e. pressure treated) is a suitable building material? 

Thanking in advance!

Fairy- I hope you can walk because for various reasons I can't run. I'll also be pushing a stretcher so at least the downhill will be easier 

All for a good cause though we'll be raising enough money to put a defib on the outside of the building so anyone can use it if they need too. 

I hope Wonkys move goes well! I'd come and help but I've 60 children in today.

I forgot to add that I nipped to the local garden centre... aren't they so depressing this time of year? All the plants look in a very sorry state (surely its too early to be dormant) and the yellow label area was stripped bare. Even the packets of seeds were looking sorry for themselves.

In fact I was so disappointed by my pottering around I forgot to pick up the compost I' gone in there for!

Pat I hope you sleep well. We'll try and keep the noise down!

My efforts to tidy the house aren't going well. I went into the garden earlier: I think Sunday will involve hacking everything back down to basics its so over grown now. I'm loosing two flower beds to the lawn to make it more dog / partner friendly and somehow can't seem to convince partner to finish any of the projects he's offered to do. Its all a mess!

I have however (somehow) agreed to a half marathon run (well jiggle) and its not ended up involving my also pushing a stretcher with someone sat upon it doing CPR.

I can barely push a trolley around the supermarket!!

Punkdoc: despite the warm weather I'm very chilly! Mind you I'm meant to be doing the house work today so perhaps I ought get on with that to keep me warm.

 

Lilly: I've not had chance to look yet back (been a mad few days) but has your do split his pad? That's what happened to Reggie (who is STILL in recovery after ten plus weeks). I hope you get the hound sorted out without too many set backs.

 

*hugs* to all those that need them, I'm going to see if I can catch up on what has been happening.

Morning all. Working all weekend here teaching cpr and life saver skills at the museum: here's hoping people don't get put off by the marathon on Sunday going past our front door else I'll be so lonely!

Morning all.  A much more gentle 30 students today in the museum. Yesterday was interesting: their booking form didn't arrive until the afternoon so there was no way I could know what tour they wanted until they arrived then it turned out they wanted two different types. Agh!

Oh well I am if not used to smiling through blind panic.

DD I hope you find that foster home soon: if I were closer he could come here.

DD I hope you're able to find Shadow a nice town house with plenty of country parks and only tennis balls to chase. I'm glad Charlie has such a pragmatic answer and wish you both the very best in wandering the empty house when he sets off on his new adventure. We've had Reggie since February and I couldn't be without him now.

I've booked a weeks holiday (first holiday of the year) to look after the inlaws dog in December. I have to say I'm looking forward to it (now I know the dogs get on more than happily) more than if you booked me in for an all included holiday in somewhere warm and sunny. Funny what keeps a person happy.  Yay holiday!

Verdun: I hope your neice is okay today, I know that you're the perfect person to make sure she gets any extra help she might need to cope with the asshats in the world.

First school group visiting the museum this term: 70 of them! Why didn't I start with a nice small easy group to break myself back in gently? Keep the mugs of tea on standby for me!

Does putting slate on your pots help keep the soil moist?
