If it's almost Thursday... must a Random Thought Bubble!
  • Believe it or not, I had to rescue another bird this week! Phoebe had nothing to do with it this time around! I arrived at my evening job to find that a chaffinch had got itself stuck in the skylight of one of the study rooms!! It was perched at the top of the skylight 'tube' and was just not prepared to come down and leave the room by the door like any proper bird would! In the end Wendy and I tied two brooms together and persuaded it down to our level, where I caught it, and got pecked twice for my troubles, and released it to it's frantic partner outside!

  • Still no laptop although I will be paying for it tomorrow and hopefully getting it by the beginning of July. Why no laptop yet? Well, one of the current offers on the laptop that I want is for free bluetooth headphones (worth £30) which I am sure are very nice indeed, but seeing as I have a little hearing problem - headphones are no good to me, so I got on to Dell and see if they'd negotiate a bit and they did! I will be sorting out the final details tomorrow!

  • It looks as though I have a canal holiday to look forward to some time this summer! I have always fancied a holiday where we travel on a narrowboat for a week, opening and closing locks, stopping at the pub for lunch, and mooring overnight where the cows live! Mum, Dad, Matt and I will be travelling together (not forgetting Mum and Dad's dog), so it's a good job that we get on well as those narrowboats are the ultimate in minuscule living! Mum and I are already looking forward to it and will be doing some research and planning so that we know where the best places are!

Yay to you for saving the birdie!

The canal trip sounds so fun! I hope you'll post about it.

I grew up near a river and my grandfather was a bargeman so I feel some sort of thrill every time I see a canal going through Locks. A group of us are considering it along the Shannon this year. Should be fun. I really hope you enjoy the holiday :)

Where are you thinking of going?

You're the bird whisperer (like "The Horse Whisperer," but different)! ;)
