Always look on the bright side of life ...

well what else can you sing when you've just had a pigeon play kamakaze and throw itself down your chimney into the lounge bringing a nice lovely shower of soot. What a clean up session we had today, i could have been hired out at weddings as a chimney sweep. It was a good job DH was home as the bird was flying all over the place, he went into action man mode, grabbed a towel and threw it over the bird, grabbed it, took it outside and released it, then set too with helping to get us cleaned up and back to some sort of normal, never a dull moment at our house

We had a sparrow in the kitchen this morning...you had better check those pigeons arent trying to make a nest in your chimney lol.
Thnak you for the details re the forms. I am very tempted to give it a go...I am always looking for inspirational and easyish ways to finish things...anything to get out of using the sewing machine lol

We once had that happen to us but DH wasn't here to save me! I had to get the cat out of the lounge really quickly to stop him trying to get the bird, then I ran to my neighbour's down the road for help lol.
