What a manic couple of weeks! And way behind with my journal. It has been nonstop busy! But … the joyous news is … that I have been sleeping! The Gravity Blanket seems to be doing its stuff. I have still woken during the nights, but managed to pretty much fall right back to sleep again. I am nae very good at explaining things, but the gravity blanket is the most amazing feeling. I have my fathers legs , now those of you who know , will know that this is not necessarily a good thing, yet this weighted blanket makes them feel so light and I’ve had no aches during the night from them.
18th April – Saw my first Lambs of the Spring.
Lost me phone in the evening. I’d left it in the Fridge! I know, well, don’t know, so please don’t ask.
Haven’t had a Brambling in the garden this winter, but this morning (Sunday), heard a noise and there was one in the Cherry Tree above the feeders.
Woke in discomfort, this was due to the Poodle & the nest he had made out of me Gravity Blanket. Told him I would look at getting a kennel for him today!!!
Trying to integrate Barclay and others, McQuack nae impressed and puffs himself out at Barclay! Also, think Barclay fancies the Tame Sheep!
Tuesday 24th April 7.30pm – The first Swallow has arrived, but a summer it doesn’t make!
Wednesday 25th The Tame Sheep has it in for McQuack and chased him down the glen!
Thursday 26th April – 4.31am, woke to Bruce cock a doodle doing! Wtf!
6.30am Bruce’s song was replaced by that of a Song Thrush, beautiful
Saturday 28th April – Beautiful but frosty and a covering of fresh snow on the hills.
Alistair in earlier tonight, so we headed off to the pub for tea.
Sunday 29th April – Cool start but beautiful & it soon warmed up.
Visitor sat out with Coffee enjoying the sunshine, when McDuck appeared off her nest and without warning, pretty much beat the hell out of Bruce the Cockerel! She soon had him literally pinned to the grass and was showing no mercy! I had to intervene with a stick, then Bruce turned on me! The visitor just sat drinking his coffee taking it all in!
1st May – Seriously, where is this year going to?!! May Gosling, but still no sign of Ducklings yet, surely can’t be long now? Though Muscovy do take 35 days.
2nd May – Another manic day and just as manic tomorrow. All will be revealed (Hopefully) at the weekend. It was a downpour last night and the river was in full flow this morning.
Looking out onto more new born lambs as I type this.
All in in all, it’s been a stressful couple of of weeks and the Tulloch menagerie are still running amok.
