Default Fun! Poppy xx

We are having a very exciting morning. All day yesterday there were skitter skatter noises coming from the fireplace, and Mum said there was a jackdaw in the chimney again. She put the fireguard up, and fiddled with the damper thing, and we all waited. And this morning it finally came down into the fireplace, and Mum got a towel and tried to get it out but it escaped and flew off across the room, and we chased it. Then Mum chased all of us and it flew onto the window sill and then onto the dresser and Mum was getting very cross and we got very excited and at last she caught it and took it outside to fly away.

And she had just put everything back in place and sat down when there was a skitter skatter noise from the fireplace... We are watching and waiting, 'cos it sounds as if it might be nearly ready to come out, but Mum is all grumpy for some reason...

Wow! You gets excitement at your house! Nothing ever comes down our chimney! I'm going to sit and watch it today and make sure.

Your friend Zephyr

You have an exciting house to play in. Can I come over and chase birdies? I would like that.

Love,
Noelle

Do come , Noelle! It got better and better! A bit boring at first, as the next one came down quite soon and Mum caught it first go, and all we got to do was chase it for a bit as it flew away over the houses, but then we went out in the car and had treats at the vets while Mum collected Pippin's medicine, and then we went to the bank and did some boring shopping, watching Mum take clothes off and put other clothes on, then take the new ones off and put the old ones back on (honestly, humans are weird! It was worse than gardening!). But then we went for a really nice walk and got home just as the rain started, and our favourite neighbour had just come home after being away for weeks and weeks so we stopped to say hello and get a treat from him, and then we came into the house and there was a flappity flippity noise and there was another jackdaw flying around - Mum didn't put the fireguard back properly! So we had a lovely chase until Mum caught it, and we chased it again as it flew away, and then we had a scrummy supper, and now we are sharing Mum's potato hoops, while she drinks a glass of wine. She says she feels she has earned it, but she didn't do nearly as much running and jumping as us. Jackdaws are nearly as good to chase as chickens - better in some ways, as chickens never come down the chimney.

Keep an eye on the chimney, Zephyr - you may be lucky too!

[Note to self - remember to book a chap to replace the wire cap on the chimney...! fjm]

Haha...as I read this thread, in the beginning I was filled with consternation. Gradually as more and more birds flew out, I was grinning, but glad of their survival. When your mum got the gin ready, I was laughing out loud. Poppy...I can see there's never a dull moment for you in your life. Hope your mum remembers to put the thingy on the fireplace so more birds don't come in. I know you must love to chase them. But it's not fun when mums get cross. On the other hand, they can be pretty fun when they get the gin out.

You have such interesting adventures at your house. No wonder Mum will need some nice cold gin in order to relax! Hopefully she will feed you scrummy treats while she sips gin!
