First of all though, I have to do battle with Yodel.
I had a card through Wednesday with a tracking number saying it was left in my front porch. I do not have a front porch. I rang them. They had no such tracking order, and the hard to understand lady in foreign far away climes cheerily told me not to worry as the parcel wasn't meant for me!
Well, I sent an Amazon enquiry off to be given the information that it was delivered to a safe space.
The only things that are on my front are my recycling boxes. Very occasionally, my old delivery driver who sadly passed away before Christmas used to leave things in there for me. This new bloke is USELESS.
SO EITHER he has had it away with my parcel, or someone has seen him deliver it into the boxes and nicked it.
Wish them luck!! I don't need it!
At work, I am getting nothing done. Nothing. This is because I'm turning into Bill Oddie. With our little group, we have put out some food for the birds. Fat balls and budget mixed seed from Poundland. We've put it in one little bush, and we got a window feeder. The children are enthralled by the very naughty greedy squirrel who bats not an eye as he sits on our windowsill casually helping himself to pawfuls of seed, before scurrying off with stolen fatballs. But on the snowy day last week, in one bush there were, at the same time, some blue tits, a coal tit, a great tit, a pair of gold finch, a long tailed tit, a sparrow and a wren, much to the disgust of Mr Robin who was doing his best to defend his bush from the onslaught of visitors. Mrs Mistlethrush on the ground flirted quite shyly with Mr Blackbird as they scooped up the budget feast. Then the icing on the cake was a beauty of a nuthatch who visited.
HOWEVER, I live a two minute walk away from this bird show. In my garden, there is a veritable smorgasbord of every type of premium bird food in site. I've niger seed, peanuts, sunflower hearts, black sunflower see, mixed finch food, mixed no mess see, fat balls, suet nuggets and logs and flutter butter.
I've maybe one or two die hard bluetits who co e and a turkey sized wood pigeon!!! WTF?????
Poundland birdfood all the way from now on!!
I tried to take a photo of the nuthatch but it's rubbish!!
Bird bush central!
Lots of love from Rachel *half term * Radiostar xxx
PS. News just in, the parcel was tucked behind my planter!!! Hardly secure *bad mood face* anyway it’s here and was discovered before I had to put on my assertive do not mess with me phone voice!
Thank you for all your good wishes regarding my thumb! It’s much better now thanks!
And the wedding dress - lots of people have asked. Well, the advert that I clicked on face book took me to a site called wish.com and from there I couldn’t find the frock. Bear with me... I just found it! £10!!!!!!! Says very small on the sizing. I may order it to fit into!!! Other reviews say it’s see through too!!!
