No Sleep-ins ’til Summer

The annual hatching of the starling chicks in the Pigalina’s roof must have happened while we were at work today. As usual there is one nest above the lounge and one above our bedroom. The cheeping is cute now, but when they get a bit older and start squawking for food at full volume first thing in the morning they prompt the yearly vow that we will block their entrances before next year.
Four years and counting.

Doggy Bedtime Secrets

Oh hey Tobias, why aren’t you getting into bed?
I lifted his top blanket to reveal his secret stash of goodies – amid the soil lay a biscuit and a lard bird feeder that had been missing for months. Today it must have been ripe enough to dig up to save for a midnight feast.

Double William

As I pulled into the driveway I got a surprise, William and his doppelganger from next-door hanging out.
I went inside and William2 followed. William jumped onto my bed, William2 did too.
Once I had got William2 back outside it meowed through the door to get back in. The dog sniffed at the cat under the door and it hissed and scratched at the glass.
Will this friendship continue? We shall see…

Not A Marathon

Today, after work, I decided that Tobias (dog) and I would walk as far as we could until Mr Pigalina finished work – time unknown.
I strapped on my walking shoes, donned my shorts, filled my water bottle, and we were off. It was pretty windy but we battled on, past the sheep fields, litter filled ditches and the scrap metal yard.
I reached the Green Island shops, which from Waldronville is quite a distance (Google map it!) and was feeling so proud of us. Then Mr Pigalina pulled up to give us a ride home. As I stopped my walking app I was surprised to discover we had only walked 3.5km which is less than the usual route! The straight line nature of the walk made it seem further than our usual loop.
At least we saw some different sights, such as this duck on the stream. One day we plan to walk the 13km to Mr Pigalina’s work…
