What a Week!

Oh dear the on going saga with my website. Originally it was supposed to be launched Christmas 2009 but with one problem after another it still remains but a dream. Well, last week while trying to test it yet again. I could not log on only to be told the site had been hacked. Thank goodness it was backed up so, its up there again in cyber space. Now once the company have sorted out the postal costs it should be ready to run.

I have been really busy this week being me I did not realise that Easter was just around the corner. I thought I had ages but as you know it is next weekend. So here is a sample of what I have been creating.

Squirrel Mayhem

My mother has a squirrel living in a hole left after an old flue was removed from the bathroom. The animal cannot get into the roof and is doing no harm. But Mum being Mum wanted rid of it and routinely chased it with a garden broom. Luckily to say she never managed to catch it. Well over Winter it hibernated and all was quiet on both the squirrel and Mum front. But as Spring sprung Mum wanted the hole blocked up and the squirrel evicted. So I arranged for a friend to block the hole for her. Well you would not believe the drama, it seems the squirrel is female and has had young. She went berserk when she returned to find the hole blocked and spent the night clawing away at the piece of wood covering the hole. Luckily as we thought a pigeon may be in there we had left a breathing hole and hoped to release the animal the next day as it just would not come out. Today we removed the wood so that mother and babies were reunited. After her ordeal the squirrel will probably move her babies to a safer place. Its a shame because they weren't harming anything or anyone being there. Hopefully alls well that ends well. I would have left them be and gloried in the knowledge that I had nature living on my doorstep.

Here's what I have been upto while not terrifying squirrels.

Roll on Spring

In our local Sainsbury store they seem to sell HCBs for about 5 months, not just around Easter.

Here in London in the UK we had two fine days of sunshine at the begining of March and now its back to the blustery inbetween weather. Which is not winter but definitely not Spring.

Here is a sample of what I have been upto.
