I thought he was joking.
Nope, he was serious.
One of the little doors was half-way up.
Apparently he can let himself out of the cage.
I went outside and started whistling.
I was sure I could hear him respond.
There he was, under the bbq.
He climbed straight up onto my arm when I went to him.
He had been attacked by birds but at that stage we didn't know what ones.
We thought if magpies or butcher birds, he'd be dead.
So that left the noisy minors as culprits :(
But after he climbed up my arm, he flew off down to the back garden.
I ran down to save him, whistling madly.
Finally he came out of hiding amongst the branches on the ground.
He was a bit traumatised and once back in the safety of his cage, only wanted to sleep.

We call our mothers ...... Mum.
My American friends call their mothers ..... Mom.
My eldest two boys call me .... Mum.
My youngest calls me ......
Yep, you guessed it.
Cameron calls me .....
It makes me giggle every time I here it (which is lots in one 24 hr period)
I can't even blame it on an American friend of mine :D
Cameron's favourite all time movie is Transformers.
He calls people .... humans! (hoo-mans)
And he calls me Mom!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon the fields.
May the light of friendship guide your paths together.
May the laughter of children grace the halls of your home.
May the joy of living for one another
trip a smile from your lips, a twinkle from your eye.
And when eternity beckons,
at the end of a life heaped high with love,
May the good Lord embrace you
with the arms that have nurtured you
the whole length of your joy-filled days.
May the gracious God hold you both
in the palm of His hands.
And, today, may the Spirit of Love
find a dwelling place in your hearts.

They are so easy to make. I make them in about 4-6 hours tops.
This is for a little girl
This one fits a larger wrist
And this is one my 19yr old niece ordered.

I just feel relieved.
How bizarre, I know.
But I never said I wasn't strange hahahahaha
Next week is going to be painful for me literally.
I have to have a couple of lumps cut out. One on my leg and one on the back of my head in the hairline (behind my left ear).
Not looking forward to that!
I need to post photos of our beautiful mulberry tree.
Every summer, this tree plays a big part in my boys lives.
They spend endless hours climbing it and eating the mulberries.
This year they have said they are going to try and eat all the berries before the birds can get them.
You go boys!!!!!!
I took these photos a couple of weeks ago when the berries started growing.
Now the tree is in full bloom.
The mulberries are red, ripe and juicy ....... yummy!
(I'm sure this crazy weather has the fruit too early but we'll still enjoy it)

We have peach, nectarine and plum trees.
Peach(peach flower very similar to the Nectarine)
At the moment, they are flowering and starting to fruit.
The trees look absolutely beautiful in full flower (but I missed that shot)
I hope the fruit are nice this year.
Last year, the fruit dropped off before they were ripe.
If not the birds, its the bugs.
One of the few things I like about Summer is the fruit :D
