Every day, When I'm Away...

I cycled this morning.  It is definitely getting easier.

Lots of Rabbits, and wee birds that I don't know who they are, but they are full of songs and very chipper this time in the morning.

And recovery time was a lot less!

The Further Tales of the Friendly

After my last posting, there were new developments.

I glanced out of the living room window about 7 in the evening. And there sat Beau. My photo

As I screamed "drop it", she did, and proceeded to be entertained by bashing the mousey, quite gently though I may add, so that it bounced away from her, and then weirdly enough crawled back to her.  Kidnapper Syndrome?

My husband and I got quite agitated trying to get her to drop it and move far enough away for us to rescue the mousey again, but were unsuccessfull, especially when her sister came out, and that was the queue to pick it up and run really fast away.

This morning, I stepped out on to the path, to be met by a Mouses Arse on one paving slab, it's head on another, and what I could only imagine to be it's bowel draped artistically between the two.

I was feeling crap enough when I left.   Yeuk

I done a good thing

I stepped out the back door to hang the washing, and Beau came round the corner with a tail hanging out of her mouth .

"Drop" I said, and weirdly enough, she obeyed.  This is one cat with an identity crisis if ever I met one.

In front of me, on the grass, paws raised in surrender on the ground, lay a little mousey.  "I'm sorry little thingy", I said to it, looking at it's slightly open mouth and it's little teeth showing.  And then, caught the slightest movement from one of the paws.

I picked Beau up and dropped her  in the kitchen, and closed the door.

I went back to the wee mousey, and watched as, it's breathing became evident, and then it flipped itself over on to it's belly again.   It was breathing hard, and shaking obviously terrified, and wasn't going to move anywhere soon.

I glanced round to the house and saw that Beau had ran upstairs and was pressed against the bedroom window watching.

I found a little pot, and took it over to mousey, and pushed him inside.   His wee body didn't move at all but the wee worm like tail raised up in a salute.

I carried him over to an overgrown area of the garden - heading into next doors, and set the pot down.  He still didn't move, so I tipped it slightly, and the wee mousey dropped onto the soil.  He seemed then to get the hint, and moved under a leaf.

I watched for a moment, to ensure that he really had got the idea he was free, and laughed as he scrambled into the deeper undergrowth.

I gave him 10 minutes escape time, because I let Beau Out.

Beau is currently sitting staring at the place she last seen him.  I think he'll be okay.

It's Friday, Friday....

Cycled, Monday and Tuesday, and today.

For some unbeknownst reason I decided to change my route to another one.  That was a mistake. 

Up hill, from 60ft above sea level to 100 ft above sea level, down and up and down and up.

But I did get a last "down" which sent me flying at about 40 miles an hour. I was bumping so much I was laughing my head off. The cows were looking at me very weirdly.

It added an extra mile to my trip, covered me in mud, and I fell over twice.

But it was quite a nice way to start the morning.

Doctor, Doctor, Can't You See I'm Falling, Falling

Took my baby to the doctors today.

Doctor tried strong arm tactics.

Was not a success.

Smoothies, and Pancakes with Maple syrup were more effective.

I can't Stand Up for Falling down.

Now, am feeling bad.

Was sidestepped by one of the little travellers.  she was bedecked in Paul's Boutique jacket, retailing £61.00, Nike IDs, and a designer skirt, from where I'm just not sure.

"Please let mey yuse your toilet", she says.

"No", I say.

"Why not" She says.

"because we aren't running a public convenience" Says me.

"I won't tell anyone" says she.

"no" says I.

"What is it that you do in there", Says she.

"Electronics", Says I.

"What kind" says she.

"I don't understand them, so I doubt you will". Says I

"So what do you do, if not the electronics", Says she.

"Accounts". Says me.

"All day", says she.

"Yes" Says me.

And she looked at me horrified.

Damn you travelling person.  Stop making me feel bad about myself, and my lack of designer clothing and the freedom to go where I want, when I want and leave a massive trail of devastation behind me.

Everything Changes, but everything stays the same


Call me racist if you wish, but I'm a bit peeved right now.

A "caravan" of Gypsies have moved in to the area which was formerly our Warehouse Loading bay.

By Caravan, I don't mean one caravan, I mean 12 caravans, 4 BMW's, 4  4x4s, various white vans, and 2 commercial vehicles.

Our landlords advised us to lock the gates to prevent any more of them arriving, which we did and handed the keys over to the security guard who arrived on site.  he is under instruction to let them out, but not to let them back in again.

Last night when I left, there were 5 of their cars outside the premises, when I arrived this morning - all the cars were inside.  He's not quite got this "security" lark off patt has he?

yesterday morning, we had little girl arrive in her PJ's.  "Please Soir, could ah have sum wate, ah'm beggin ye, ah'm really thursty".   Ah yes, that would be why you need the water in a kettle.  "Piss off".

Today, Mother arrived in her BMW, (which wasn't in the premises yesterday), dressed in her best toweling dressing gown, and chucked the kids out of the car, to scream at us through the window "open da gate, wur gonna be late fur school". 

Yes, well, since it was already 910, you were late for school, and no amount of us not opening the gate would prevent that.

We've heard that 10 kids have been enrolled at the local primary school.  Doesn't sound like they are planning to go anyway, anytime soon!

Friday 5... oh Yes.

Of the products you use just to keep yourself clean and presentable, what seems to be the most overpriced?

Elemis Skin Care.... Too dear. Far too dear. So I just don't use it. Slap on the old Nivia.  Lovely Jubly.

My bag. My Mount Olive Trojan Bag.  Quarters / Pound Coins / 50pence. Always. My purse falls open, and all my money falls out. 

A rare yes-or-no question on Friday 5: Have you ever dropped your cell phone onto your face?

What did you last take out of your freezer?

Walls Vanilla Ice Cream.  Which I then troughed, with caramel sauce.  Hmmmm.  All I needed was some flakes. 

How many rolls of wrapping paper do you have in your house?

About 15.  we over-buy every year, at christmas, and put them in the attic, and forget about them. I have to think of some craft which uses wrapping paper, or maybe I will start covering all the books on my book shelf with wrapping paper. That could be quite cool.

Don'cha think?

Oh My Heavens

Today I cycled for the third day in a row.  I keep hoping it is going to  get better, but I don't think it is. It took me longer to recover today than it did yesterday?  Maybe I was going faster?  hmmm.

Difficult to say, because I stopped just over half way to take some photos, but I think maybe I did 4 miles in 25 minutes, Thats' 4 miles back too. 8 miles a day

That's gotta make a difference yes?

That's The Way it Should Be

This week the internet has been abuzz with Alice Pyne's Bucket List.    Everyone had Retweeted, Facebooked, whatever social network they use, and I think every business or person who was named in her bucket list has been in touch and everyone is trying to fulfil her wishes.

They have also managed to raise 18K for her sister who is running in the Race for Life for cancer research.

There are so many people in this world, with more than they need.  Why can't it be like this all the time.  Some one needs help, someone offers?  It should be doable.

We don't have much as a family, we get by, but I will always try to give something to someone who needs more than me.
