On Friday I was sat in the window waiting for Laura to come home and it started snowing. On Saturday morning there were some little footprints in the snow at the back of the house. I asked Laura what they could be, and she told me that they were mostly from the birds looking for food, and a cat probably looking for the birds, while they looked for food; however I am not going to think about that part of it, but I would love to see more of the birds. 

So, I now have a new hobby, I am going to start bird watching. Laura said it was an excellent time to start, as next weekend (26th & 27th January) is the RSPB Garden Bird Watch weekend.  All I have to do is sit very still, look out of the window for one hour and count all the birds I see visiting the garden.

Apparently, this activity should suit me well, as Laura said that I am very good at sitting still for more than an hour at a time. I do sometimes wonder what she is really trying to say.

Anyway, Laura had helped me find the link for anyone else who wishes to be able to sit down for an hour and not get grumbled at for wasting time.

Have a good bird watch.


I do hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed your presents.

I hoped to get a new scarf, some chocolate and a Christmas cracker, and I did! My scarf is a beautiful deep red, the chocolate was lovely (I have eaten it) and the cracker was really loud. It had the most wonderful present inside; a set of three screwdrivers just my size! I will now be able to help Laura’s Dad when he is mending things for Laura.

I am not sure why, but Laura made me leave the screwdrivers in her father’s tool kit. She said they would be happier with the other tools and that I would get into less trouble if I was supervised when using them. I sometimes think she doesn’t trust me with sharp implements.

Happy New Year for 2013!
