Floods!

Well today it dawned bright and sunny. I had about 4 hours sleep, the noise and the worry of what was happening outside kept me awake way past 2am, and I was up and looking out the window at first light, just after 6 am to see that my aviary was still in one piece.

Went on my laptop for a while and did my quizzes and stuff, and then got up early (well for me it was early) did the bird feeders and my birdies, and then set to work at sorting out the shed roof. I had a green plastic tarpaulin that I bought a few weeks ago,wasn't going to bother with it because Barry has a piece of heavy duty plastic for me, so next time I see him that can go on, and will be a bit stronger than the one I've got now. I'm not bothering with bloody felt again, that hasn't even lasted 4 years. I was literally nearly falling over in the mud up there, my wellies were sinking about 4 inches into the sludge and trying to stay when my feet wanted to move elsewhere! Also had to bag up the remains of my plastic cover from the greenhouse. That was a feat too, getting that in a bin bag, all slimy and smelly. Also repaired the fence panel again, but they aren't going to last much longer, are rotten completely and falling apart, they will have to be replaced this summer I think.

Took Emma round what was left of the park at Llandysul this afternoon. The river had flooded a lot of it and good job I had my wellies in the car else we would have had a very shortened walk. The path was under water for about half of the circuit, and I kept Emma on the long lead until we cut across the field because of the speed the water was going, wasn't taking any chances. She loved it of course, lots of deep puddles, where she could virtually swim.




















Um, I don't think they will be playing hockey today......

So glad to hear the storm is all over and the birds were okay. Must have been a bit of a mess when you went outside this morning. I see little "muddy paws" is enjoying the water again.
