I loved Willo the Wisp too Jackie Frost. Unfortunately poor Mavis came out legless!

Haven' had sprouts for ages, I've always liked them.

Nice to see lots of people here today. Nighty night to one and all now.

Christmas cards? Not bought any yet.

Norm,  Love your metal creations and look forward to seeing more.

Jo, your avatar is lovely.

Aggie the chook is on Baytril for her wheezles and was OK when I left for the Christmas parade. We got the bus there to save parking hassles etc. Never again!! Had to wait an hour and a quarter getting colder, tireder and grumpier by the minute at the end of the afternoon to get home again : @

Sausage sarnies done and dusted here! Off to Christmas Parade this afty - collecting for Save the Children.  Going on the bus - if it comes, which is by no means certain.

Had to take Aggie-chook to vet an hour ago as came home from dog-walk to find she has a bad case of the wheezles. While I was walking up to the surgery she laid an egg so when I opened the box there she was eating egg and covered in the stuff. Made a right mess of the vet's table.

Curious to know what Glyn's 'bacon sad is' is. Is it a clever-clogs computer trying to guess what you mean by any chance? There are three is's in a row back there.

Morning All.

Scroogie-dahling lovely to see you. You know it all turns out hunkydory for you in the end, don't you?   :- )

Bjay, I know exactly what you mean about unforseen doggy expenses. In the past two years mine have cost me three baby gates and a fence with two gates across the entire back garden.

Birds feeding this morning - goldfinches, bluetits, coal tit, blackbirds, robin - who was trying to get the niger seed out of the tiny holes. I can waste a lot of time watching them.

You have my sympathies, Bjay. It's so hard to know what's setting them off. Two of mine started last night, I know not why - foxes or other nocturnal wanderers is top guess - but having two weeks of it is dreadful. I had terrible troubles for Pepper's first few weeks and spent at least four nights sleeping on the hall floor near him so he'd settle then invested in a baby gate so he could be right outside the bedroom and see us but not get in. I also got in the habit of having a torch by the bed so if I got up in the night I could see any furry trip-hazards.  I do hope your blind does the trick.

Bjay, are you having doggy troubles? You probably said so sometime and I missed it. I'm no dog psychologist but I have dogs!

Yes Becks this one is from Morrisons- spelt bread.

b-r-e-a-d is a very peculiar way to spell Morrisons ;- )

Thanks Geoff. In some ways I think they deserve to have the fruits of their labours! Anyway, I'll have a read later.

Yes, Geoff. They peck it open and slurp up the contents. I knew it must be happening but actually caught them slurping a couple of days ago. I don't mind them having the odd one - they are thin shelled and occasionally break - but it appears to be a deliberate daily act now.

Hello forkers. Welcome Norm. Nice to see you David. I only change half my name otherwise I forget who I am too ;- )

Have been freezing my fingers off in dog-rescue office this morning. Stopped off at sarnie shop for hot coffee and warm baguette with hot bacon and melted cheese. Feeling a bit more human now.

Choccy - a sunshine.

Jess - tiara and jelly babies

My chickens have a) survived the cold night and b) developed a taste for eggs. They have one a day and, if I'm lucky and a second is laid, I get one too.
