    Oi has been readin' but it is looking like sadly I cannot stay for long.


    Tips, Mrs Lun is ....... okay-ish; the X-ray eventually came back clear & doktor peeps said "more tests" but getting these is ->
    Still sore throat BUT at least she can speak now, after a few courses of different tablets.
    So it's a kinda waiting game to see what occurs next, though she is much better generally TVM for asking.
    (MIL had MRI & has a few tests booked over next few weeks. She too is generally improved but not 2right" IYSWIM.)



    It's great to see new visitors here, a big WELCOME to motivated.


    It sounds like you has bin havin' fun Fruity - ankle grinders to wheels sounds .... er .......... !

    We don't wanna keep birdies away though Sleazy. We have lotsa "regulars", from a family of thrushes (thrush ???? thrushiii???) to our beloved wood pigeons and even robins (no, no Batpersons - though we do have bats too).
    "Fairy garden" I ask you ........... I suggested that a grenade may be appropriate response. The bruising is slowly fading .


    Now as I said (managed longer than I thought already) I might ...... MIGHT not be about much.
    Because the stork is due to pay a visit to eldest daughter, who lives over an hour away - and is (we think) in early stages now.

    Once the texts/phone calls get closer ............


    So I bid you all a fond "adiue" until latererers, mebbees.

    Hi and by LUN. I'm glad the ladies of your domain are improving. Does this mean your magic laundry bin will start working again soonly?
    Ow! Who hit me?

    We have lots of dicky-tweats visiting us, but alas no frushes. Apart from a squadron of migrating Redwings of the frush fambly many years ago, we have only ever had a visit from one frush in the firty five yerz wot I have lived here.
    Did you know that there are firty fousand fevers on a frushes froat?

    We do get three young magpies playing in the jardin every year, always with mum and dad watching from poles and trees nearby. We get a pair of clever crows that dip their food in the pond and then come back about ten minutes later when it is softer to eat.

    Blackbirds a plenty, with a nesting pair in the hedge. Pairs of bobbin red chesticles, sparrows by the million, collared doves, feral pigeons, and a few woodpigeons that do a very good famous grouse impersonation when they walk.
    We have a dovecote in the apple tree but no dove has ventured within, although we did once witness a pair of the slily birds sheltering underneath it from the rain.
    Some of the pigeons have worked out how to hang by one foot from the bird feeders whilst tucking their tail under and flapping like bad to maintain position. The other pigeons hang about underneath to catch the seeds wot get dropped. I end up have to refill the feeders every two days as a result.

    We have a pair of wrens that visit occasionally and serenade each other with their beautiful voices.

    On odd occasions we get birds of prey visiting and sometimes swooping through, and once we had a couple of green woodpeckers.

    At dusk we occasionally get bats overflying, but I now not from whence they come.

    There are badgers in the garden behind ours, and I have been battling with them for several years to stop them tunnelling in to ours. Goddess of the White knows what would happen if our Boxer dog Ellie was to meet one.

    We used to get newts, sloworms, and the odd eel in the pond, but haven't seen any for a few years now.
    We do still get breeding frogs and toads every year though. They offspring are now about the size of a thumbnail but Ellie hasn't found any yet. She always looks so surprised when they are bigger and hopping about as she patrols the jardin.

    ... and that is the end of our Countryfile report from Fruitcake Folly.

    This is our fourth, and my Cousin's fifth boxer. Her first was a huge white male one she got when she was eleven, and he had a large brown patch over one eye, so was called patch. After we got married we had a brindle female called Kim, a red male called Charlie, a white female with brown ears like Gromit called Polly, and now our Ellie who is all white.

    Right, I really must go and do a bit.

    Well, Mr Teazy your command of all languages is well above average.

    I expected Moti to point out that the only way is Essex.

    I could only find pre-launched carrots at Tesco extra and NO cabbages. I think there must have been a cabbage run in these parts, could be the sea air. I found a sweet - tart cabbage in Sainsbury's extra - the last one.

    Dinner is almost ready - so maybe Laterers
