Roll Call

We left the hotel in the middle of Sweden nowhere at 10.40am
(It cost each one of us 10£ to be transported by the hotel taxi 1 mile to the train station)
We then caught 2 trains to Stockholm
( and was delayed by a police raid into car no 3 where a drug crazed man was removed )
Then flew to Manchester where our taxi driver lost us
And got home at 9pm
Just in time to collect a quietly hysterical Winnie from our dog groomer
And a quietly happy George from my sister


 Village elder ,  Islwyn has done a stirling job with the livestock
all but two girls have survived probably the most dangerous week of their lives
One very old runner duck and one older hen have disappeared 
A fact that amazed me...I was convinced that I would have lost more
So thanks to Islwyn, John from next door, animal helper Pat, Jackie from Prestatyn and my sister Janet
As I am now sat here , content in the knowledge  that the majority of birds, the sheep, Winnie and  George and 
the wide eyed Albert are all safe and well.
( I pick Meg and William up tomorrow

Winnie making sure it's actually me


I am home

  19. Glad you're back safe and sound. Shame about the recent victims.
    A propos 'stirling', that's in Scotland, my son went to Uni there, it's near Bannockburn where Scots wha' hae wi' Wallace bled, 700 years ago to the day, actually. Now's the day and now's the hour to get rid of that proud badger! Good weekend to you and yours.x

  21. Oh, John. My dear dear John. Your relief to be back is palpable. Anyway, have decided that should I ever turn suicidal I'll just join your coop and wait for a hungry fox or badger to stroll by. Yes, that's how lazy I am.
