I'm sorry about yesterday's little blip.

Yesterday evening I actually fell asleep on the sofa whilst watching TV. I never do that. Especially not when Star Trek is on. And I missed the start of CSI so I didn't get to see the guy and the deer he'd clothed in a dress....actually, that's probably just as well. Thank you for your lovely comments..I did get a better night's sleep last night although Brodie had me up twice to go out. I've discovered that what is upsetting his stomach is plain old Shapes biscuits - I usually give them all a handful if we have to leave them or any length of time - as we did on Sunday. That's another lesson learnt.

I've also failed to catch up with the Fun Monday participants this week. So my apologies to those that commented on mine and whose blogs I have yet to get back to. I promise I am not being rude or ignoring you, I just seem to be running out of hours already this week.

Changing the subject completely, there is something someone might be able to help me with. There is a bird that sings away near my cottage in the mornings and I have no idea what it is. I'm not very good at identifying birds at the best of times but I do know the normal morning chorus and this is a new one on me. It has reached the stage where my brain picks it out immediately and it's all I hear, and it is driving me potty! Can anyone help me out?

Clicky the linky to have a listen.


  1. You never fall asleep watching TV? I do that almost every night of my life! :-)

    I haven't gotten around to most of the Fun Monday participants for the past 2 or 3 weeks so don't feel bad. I seem to run out of hours lately too.

    And I'm sorry but I don't know the first thing about birds so I can't help you with the song.

    Hope you feel all rested up soon!

  2. OOoo! I received a DVD the other day which is aimed to help identify birds from their song. There are 43 species on it, I'll have a listen bit later and see if I can match it for you.

  3. I listened to the bird song but not being an expert didn't recognise it~ sorry.

  4. I have no clue what bird that is but it does seem that could get a wee bit annoying. :)

  5. Glad you've gotten some rest. Can't help you with the bird. I wouldn't know a dodo bird from a carrier pigeon.

  6. No idea about the bird. Hope you're feeling better.

  7. Ziva is all into orinthwhatsitcalledology. After school today I'll see if she knows it. But no promises, she's not "advanced" yet. lol
