The weather has improved and I’ve been having lots of fun exploring locally. There’s lots of activity. The birds are on the go constantly carrying small twigs and pieces of grass.
The swans have repaired and enhanced the nest they had last year. On Sunday when we went by one of them was sitting on their eggs. I’ll keep watching and update you when they have happy news! I think it takes about six weeks for the eggs to hatch.
The bipeds are still busy getting straight after the work that was done at home. The bipeds cleaned the house from top to bottom! It seemed a bit extreme, but I have to admit it was rather dusty.
It took me a few days to decide where my favourite spot at night would be after losing the one halfway down the stairs. There’s a comfortable spot in the upstairs hall and the downstairs hall now.
I have settled on the downstairs hallway because I can climb the stairs faster than I can descend them. It only takes three or four bounds to get upstairs if I’m in a hurry, whereas I need to use each step on the way down. The bipeds say that a herd of wildebeest couldn’t make more noise than I do when I’m hurrying down the stairs! That’s obviously an exaggeration, but I prefer not to wake the bipeds unless I really need to.
The bipeds are very busy. They’re decorating the house. They won’t let me help with that. They make me keep away from wet paint. They say it’s difficult enough keeping my hair out of the paint as it is! I think the paintwork would look more interesting with some of my hair arranged in it.
I’m doing my best to ensure the bipeds get enough fresh air and exercise by reminding them to take walks with me.
I’ll be back with more news soon!
