Okay enough of the ooohhs and aaahs … these are not cute baby bunnies – these are a pair of pests! For the last year or so someone in the neighbourhood has been feeding wild rabbits – now we have babies! My neighbours can only plant potatoes in their veggie garden and I was thinking about getting my square metre raised beds productive again but is there any point?
When I tool the boys for their constitutional we had a funny! After a run in the larch spinney – during which Pup did some very stylish quartering without being directed – we decided they needed to cool off. We went back to the dyke they were in yesterday. Dog jumped straight in but Pup thought he would be clever and just have a drink. Problem was he chosen an almost vertical bank and ended up hanging by his back paws … he got a dunking so now his nickname is Duncan Donuts! He hauled himself out an shook himself with disgust … and yes I am afraid I laughed!
Then I had a visit with Evelyn who seemed in a more positive mood until I needed to leave when I got quizzed as to why I couldn’t stay. I explained that I could use a voucher today which gave me an extra £5 of food. From there I popped into Forfar and hit the supermarket! I did a good shop with a little canniness and came out to find it was just starting to rain. Weather Guru to the rescue! It was great to laugh about a few things and to catch up like him wanting a Project Tock Tock update; brightened my day up no end and it seemed to cheer him up to from a monotonous shift. Finally home on a bus with a driver in shorts – yes ladies summer uniform is now allowed – so several month of bare legs on the buses!
There was a very amusing interlude on the way home – two young girls with one of those lifelike baby dolls. They were terribly embarrassed when it cried and it got tipped this way and that to find out which end needed attention to shut it up. Best of all was the lad giving them advice … nothing worse than a crying ‘baby’ and a load of know it alls telling you what to do to pacify it? I guess if it has a lasting impact and they think twice before rushing into being mothers it has done them a favour. I was about to sit on the fold down seats at the front until I saw the buggy – I was a bit miffed to find they didn’t really need buggy space because it was a dolly!
