A little bird comes to visit

Hello and happy 2020 to you!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Ours was lovely – it was quiet with just a few of us, stacks of food and lots of games! We played Pictionary (a firm favourite), as well as Cluedo and UNO.

My dad also introduced us to a new card game called ‘Go Fish’. It’s played with a regular deck of cards and it’s brilliant. Are you familiar with it?

New Years was spent at home, mainly comforting our Cairns. One of them is really afraid of the noise from fireworks.

I must be honest, I used to be a fan of fireworks until I saw, first hand, how terrifying they are for so many animals. I now loathe them.

My Cairns are fortunate enough to have me there to comfort them – so I especially feel for the animals in the wild who are alone and must be terrified. After things settled down, it was off to bed for all of us, followed by a New Year’s Day walk.

So, January is upon us. It’s back to work, and I’m thrilled to be launching a wonderful TSV this coming Wednesday the 8th at 9pm, and then again at midnight.

I was kindly given a sample to try and, after only a few days, a little robin arrived to delve into one of the four jars! It’s the Nut Pecker Bird Feeding Station, with Peanut Butter Bird Food. And it’s going down a treat!

It’s a really charming design and really adds to the garden. This is particularly the case at this time of the year, when the garden can look at little tired and bare. It’s also lovely to lend a helping hand to our feathered friends too!

I captured this video clip. It’s a bit grainy as I wanted to position the camera some distance away so it wouldn’t distract the birds. I then zoomed in on the footage so you can see the little robin. Adorable!

It’s a fabulous TSV, and beautifully made.

I’ll be in the company of our guest and also Michael Perry, who will also be here to tell us all about it. I hope you can join us.

All the best, and here’s to a great 2020!
