Great weather for holidaymakers but when you are in the throes of house improvements with the place looking like a building site and constantly clearing up mess it's not easy!
The bedroom is well on the way to completion but the bathroom is a long way off yet and we can just about access the toilet that's it.
Maya is still here with us, her owner contacted me last Friday and asked if I could continue feeding her as the very day he was coming to try and catch her he had a nasty fall from his bike and broke his elbow, so she is still enjoying her summer vacation...and has a boyfriend Oliver the cat from up the road practically lives here now too.
Then of course there is the tale of Lucky the baby hoglet , found by Emily, my neighbours little girl ,in my Greenhouse last Friday. He was in a very bad way ,having wandered in and I must have closed the door on him, not having seen him. His mother was probably leading them on a foraging expedition around our garden when he wandered off...there's always one'.....Anyway I gave him a sugar solution and managed to revive him, kept him over the weekend then rang a local rescue centre who kindly took him in. They will let me have him back for release in the garden when he can manage on his own. There never seems to be a dull moment here.
We did manage an afternoon on the boat last weekend, it was gorgeous and as usual loads of wildlife was around as you can see by the pictures My camera lost it's charge just moments before we spotted an owl out on a branch which was a shame, as we have never seen one before on the canal.
