Birdy no 2 did not make it, either:o(
I did my best and will miss the little peeps he made.
The garden worms will be breathing a sigh of relief.
Nearly had a decapitated cat this morning. The mogs were trying out the run. All was well. They found their preferred perching posts, shady parts, etc. I happened to come out and see the back end of a cat sticking out from underneath the shed....which is attached to the run and is the ' shelter in from the bad weather' bit of the run.
Ringo. Ringo. Ringo.
I heard this mournful, panicky miaow...then more....... and realised that he was actually stuck! Visions of fire brigade to the rescue began to race in my head. Junior squealed and panicked, as usual. We (ahem...bro) got the little blighter out, eventually, by jemmying a pickaxe under the shed and lifting it enough to drag poor Rings out. Mog was black bright!!! He didn't want any fuss (due to embarassment, I suppose) and just wanted to lay on the cool laminate inside and recover his dignity..... and he's now 'resting' on my bed.
The animals are conked out with the heat a the mo...so it's nice and peaceful....until night time when it obviously becomes cooler and so is then the time to PARTY! lol
Doctor gave me some more medication for the rickety joints and said she could see that my fingers are started to deform...so I have to see a consultant at hospital. I really don't want any more drugs. Anyway, I found a book on arthritis at a local charity shop which explains that it could be allergy related (by Dr John Mansfield). So, I'm going to have a go at following an elimination diet to see if it eases off the RA. Apparently, it has a high success rate. Who knows, might be able to wear, and actually walk in, my nice, summery shoes again:o)
Back to watering courgette plants. We have 7. Can't give the buggers away so it looks like we'll be having courgette everything to eat! lol Any recipes welcome:o)..especially for preserving or freezing.
