The God’s worked in our favour this week. Hubby’s rest days fell on a weekend, everyone had recovered from the flu, AND the skies were clear. Thankfully we were up early to take full advantage of it. We needed to blow the cobwebs off and so we donned our coats and hats, and set off to feed the ducks. From experience we know that the ducks by us are a bit fussy when it comes to bread, so we stopped off to buy some soft white rolls.
Harry insisted on holding on to his own bread roll. We explained to him that you had to rip off little bits but it took him a while to grab that concept. Lobbing large bread rolls at the ducks in an attempt to lure them over does not play out too well! Luckily we were able to intercept the boulders of bread before they crash landed in the water.
Harry enjoys going to the pond as he loves being so close to animals (any animals). I enjoy visiting the pond as it allows me to check up on a goose that lives there. He suffers with a condition called angel-wing which means he is unable to migrate in the winter. If you look closely at my picture you will see that he has no feathers on the end of his wings. They just look like sticks. I feel so sorry for him because when the other geese return to the pond they shun him. I always make sure he gets the lions share of whatever we have.
After feeding the ducks we stopped off for some food and a hot drink. With the fresh air in our lungs and a bacon butty in our bellies it was then back home to snuggle on the sofa and have an afternoon nap. A perfect start to the weekend.
Have a good week.
