Busy and Joyce - the kittens are doing well thanks. Still have weepy eyes and snuffles but don't seem worried by them and are eating well. Cosmos has had another play with Rasta while Minstrel looked on, unfazed but not quite ready to join in. She's a cautious kitten. The fun will start when they meet Bonzo who is not as predictable as Rasta and finds new stuff worrying.
I suspect those frogs are invaders from Eastern Europe. They arrived in our part of Belgium about 4 or 5 years ago and make the most incredible noise which carries a long way. Between them and the mallards, sleep can be hard to come by in the mating season. I sincerely hope they haven't made it this far west!
Love the idea of multi-functional church to house to fire decorations. OH found a wonderful picture on Facebook - two very plump cats in baskets either side of the trunk of an Xmas tree whose owners had removed all the lower branches leaving just the top third decorated with baubles. One radical solution to the cats and tree problem.
No horses in our paddock yet. Haven't seen the neighbours since they came for lunch nearly 3 weeks ago and they didn't turn up on the agreed day to chat about the paddock and access and security. Bit dippy though. Good that you can have yours nearby to keep an eye on Busy.
