It all started with our oldest boy seeing him get hit by a car on the busy main road outside our home. Symon and I were of course not too worried about another "rat with wings" (as Symon calls them) seagull being hit by passing cars, but after seeing it sitting in the middle of the road, with its little head poking up and looking at each car as it passed over top of it, we... well, lets say "I" forced Symon to rescue the poor thing.
As he carried it into the house, wrapped snugly in a towel, he calmly yet pointedly said to me, "this is your responsibility".
So, to cut a long story short, a long story which included Fred nearly getting pounced on by Barney the cat, Fred falling with his broken foot and wing into our back creek (we honesty thought he was well enough to be released again) and then Fred getting washed down the muddy pipes and having to get re-rescued from the busy main road again... well, lets just say that Fred is rather happy sitting in his little fish bin home, waiting for the Bird Recovery Centre to open it's doors at 1pm today.
In other news unrelated to Seagulls and fish bins, I discovered that a simple hula hoop can keep four children entertained for well over an hour. I even found a smidgen of time on Sunday afternoon for a bit of crochet on the deck while I watched them play.
I also must add that these biscuits are so good! Will be sharing the recipe tomorrow...
Yes, it was one interesting weekend. How was your weekend? Any bird rescues or hula hoop games going on at your place?
