So How are we doing?

 Well its been about 3 weeks since Speedy crossed the Rainbow Bridge.Its been quiet and sad without him and there hasn't been much to smile about till this week but more on that in a mo.

Bird the Jackdaw has been coming daily for breakfast. Bird likes to scoff a bit of food out of my hand and looks at me intently as he or she scoffs away. If I'm at work then Bird does the same thing to the old man and then spends a good portion of the morning either in the garden stomping around for snacks or up on our roof or one of the neighbors roof tops, then he or she either waits for me to come home before flying off on its own business or leaves just before at lunch time. Then in the evening around 5.30pm Bird comes back for another snack out of my hand and in the garden before going off again.

The Hedgehogs are still coming, one seems to be living in one of the nest boxes while the one or two just come for dinner and a drink. Some days its just the resident and other days its its the visitor, kind of depends on the weather and how dry the ground is.

One thing we did do was put a make shift scare crow in the front garden as all the crows and rooks started coming and frightening off Bird, and all the little song birds. It was like a scene from the film Birds. and I would have got complaints from the neighbors. Since putting the scarecrow in the front garden that has all stopped and everything has gone back to normal so all is good on that front.

Then on Wednesday we had an important guest Stop by for afternoon Tea....

Yup that Very Important Guest was De Ark! And of course his Mum. Probably the first time we have smile and laughed Since Speedy's Passing. Ark definitely felt right at home, running around like he owned the place. Following me and the old man into the Kitchen as if it was his. We had a great afternoon of chatting, Playing and getting De Ark Kisses. Even if the weather was a tad grey it was a fab afternoon! But it did make one decision for us we will be getting another Bunny. We have a trip coming up so after that we will be looking for a new Bunny, we will take our time as it has to be the right one for us so watch this Space but until then it will be just the odd update on Bird, and the hogs or any guests or visits.....


  1. Isn't De Ark a most handsome fellow, and we're so happy that he brought a happy smile to your face! And that he helped you make an important decision for "pawing forward" (perhaps little Angel Speedy was whispering in his ears!) ...
    Have a lovely, wonderful trip wherever it may be and we'll welcome you home,
    whenever that may be!
    Huggies from JUNE and Ann

  2. Getting another of his kind is the best way to hono(u)r Speedy.

  3. Seeing the photos of you and De Ark made me smile. Grieving is hard. I’m so glad he brought some happiness to you guys.

  4. We're so glad that Ark brought some smiles by and we'll all be on Bunny watch for the announcement.

  5. Glad you had a nice bright spot in your daily doings. We look forward to hearing about your new-to-be Bunny.

  6. The bunny you find will be a very lucky one.

  8. What a lovely visitor! And glad that there was a bit of joy back in your lives. I know it is so hard. Thinking of you.

  9. Aww, I'm glad your visitors brightened your day. Have a nice trip, and I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

  10. Sounds like the birds & hedgehogs are keeping you amused and busy. The pesky birds can be a challenge to get rid of so I'm glad the scarecrow was effective. Now that our resident Scrub Jays have raised their chick, we are going to remove the overgrown shrub they were nesting in. They can be garden pests and very squawky.
    I'm so glad to hear you will start looking for a new bunny to join your family. I hope you're able to find the right match quickly.

  11. How nice that you had a visit from De Ark. We can tell he really helped cheer you up. It's wonderful to hear you will be adopting a new bunny some day. We know that bun will be the luckiest one around.

  12. Is that our pal De Ark from Freya Rose's familY? Soo good to see him and Midge.

    Have a good trip, and we look forward to meeting a new bunny family member.
