{Strange Thing in Tree and Bargain}

I had a little chuckle to myself this morning and I thought I would share it with you.

Joseph and Tiegan were playing on the trampoline in the garden whilst I was hoovering. Joseph suddenly rushed in all excited, "there's something weird in the tree!" he exclaimed.

Me: "Weird?"

Joe: "YES! It's round and look likes a skeleton but has a bit of a tail!"

Me: "Huh?"

Joe: "Quick, come and have a look. Tiegan is keeping an eye on it for us, you can only see it from the trampoline."

So grabbing my camera with the zoom lens to enable a better view, we rushed outside to see this strange thing. I clambered onto the trampoline, looked up, and...and...and...it was a...a...a....

Pigeon!

Here is the little fella causing all the fuss. The view from the trampoline:



and from the front.



After having a good giggle, I went back to the hoovering, and Joe and Tiegan continued on the trampoline.



I'm sat with a cuppa before calling the children to "schoolwork". Joe is now sat with the younger two having an impromptu reading session again :o)



Ooooh, the postman has just been and delived me the bargain of the century!

I ordered a copy of Our Island Story from a seller on Amazon on Friday evening. It was stated as new, but with bad damage to the cover. I didn't care about the cover, and as it was just 1p plus postage, I thought it worth the gamble. What has arrived this morning is fabulous hardback book, with slight creasing to the cover jacket. I am thrilled! £2.76 in total for a heavyweight hardback book. Off to have a read :o)

    I think Pigeons are weird too!
    It is lovely to see your kids reading together. One of the benefits of home education surely.
    Did you know you can get a free download of the audio book at www.freeclassicaudiobooks.com. Great for listening to whilst crafting! :-)
