A Little Bit of Sad.

While we were overseas, our two ducks, Dr Drake Ramoray and Charlize Theron were killed by foxes or dogs. Our housesitter is unsure. The two naughty ducks refused to go to bed one night, despite her multiple attempts to herd them into their duckhouse. In between attempts they were taken. She was so upset....and so are we.

Who is going to keep our dam free from waterfowl?

Who is going to torment and play with Paisley?

Who is going to snack on our garden greens?

Who is going to attack my trouser leg in the mornings?

There is no more "Go to bed ducks!" reverberating through our valley........

Vale Dr Drake and Charlize

Guilty!!!! My Carbon Footprint Has Exploded!

I have been blogging absent due to working maniacal hours, travelling overseas, ditching my horrendous job and finding new employment, and mostly because my trusty old computer was retired and HH went and purchased me one of those tablet thingies, which I hate using.

Apologies to all for my lack of commenting, which I do enjoy, but this little notebook/tablet thing is a down right bugger to type on, the cursor is a mongrel to control and my life has been busy enough to use as an excuse for my absenteeism.

So between travel, a bit of consumerism and lack of attention to my garden, my carbon footprint is hideous.
