A Rabbit, a Splosh, a sniff and a good roll!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Wot a good day it's been today, you know life can be really good when you meet up with a scaredy rabbit who forgets where his warren is and ends up tearing around the field with two Super Terrier Woofers half an inch from his tail!

We missed the sunrise but there was a little glow in the sky but nothing too exciting!

A half an hour earlier and it might have been good!
 I'll be glad when Old Two Legs gets the small camera repaired but he is using the camera in the mobile phone, so, not bad but could do better if he had an instruction manual!

OK for a landscape but wot we need is a real camera!
 Yesterday Monty and Wendy came out with us at lunchtime but today OTL said that is was Eric and May's turn today.

Eric is always a little slow in getting going but he does like sitting in the ferret bag and looking out over the rim of the bag!

OK, can I get back into the bag now?
On the other paw, Miss May just loves the out doors and she was rolling in the grass and even digging at the mole hills!

May does walk a lot further than Eric but towards the end of the walk sh gets a little tired, so it is up to Eric to walk along side May until OTL picks her up for a little carry.

Out of my way, I sniff Moles!
One good thing, I managed to get a 'Deep Paddle' today! Before OTL could do anything I was down the beach and straight into the water. It was a bit muddy but I haven't had a chance of a dip for ages!

Now, paws up, how many of you know that it is the Spring Equinox tomorrow? Now I want you all up early, dressed in you finest Equinox Robes and we can all dance around the garden scaring the Neyburzz!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Monday Fun!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

Poor old Archie Babe with his sore paw, good trick not telling them which one it is!

Wot Archie Babe needs is loads of nibbles, cuddles and treats, just to help his paw get better!

We had Google and found The Wild Duck but didn't see Auntie Sue in the car park but the pictures of the food looks good!

Today we got chicken served up and it did taste good!

Before we got that tasty dish we went out for our morning stroll through the woods and then when we got to the grassy patch we found not only a super sniff...........

Not bad for a morning sniff!
 We found some Daffy Dills blooming!

One out with more on the way!
 Lunchtime we took Wendy and Monty out for a walk. Old Two Legs had seen a window in the rain clouds and although it was wet on the ground, the rain kept away while we were out!

Well, it gives the ground a wash!
 Monty and Wendy haven't been out with us for a while and have been getting lazy so climbing up the steps caused them some difficulty!

Anyone give us a paw up!
 Miss Wendy took a running jump but it was still a bit of a scramble!

Anyone got a ladder?
Once they were up they enjoyed a run all the way back to the car!

Of course, May and Eric showed off rotten 'cos they wanted to get out for a run but OTL promised them a run tomorrow, providing of course, it doesn't rain!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Busy Busy Busy!

Hi Woofers!

No we haven't got lost!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret are here again!

Now, what day is it? Sunday? Yes, Sunday, now what happened to Saturday. Well, The Missus went off to her glue sloshing bash at the village hall while we sat down to enjoy some 'Together Time' with Old Two Legs.

Poor old duffer has been over worked this last week and we decided that he could have some time off this weekend, so, Saturday we were out nice and early for our run along the sea shore.

Too late to see the sunrise!
 Then, back home Holly and I had our 'after get up snooze' while OTL cleaned the cages out and other stuff to do with making it all tidy!

By the time he finished it was just about time to go out for the lunchtime walkies!

A Magpie on look out duty!
We got back and got the nibbles out and watched the recordings of the Game of Thrones!

You know, eating all those nibbles sort of filled us up and both Holly and I needed a rest just to let our tummies settle down before eating the chicken!

I think I've got the Grumblies!
Mind you, I didn't feel too good either, I didn't get the grumblies but I did suffer from a little wind!

I promise I won't have so many next time!
Now, Sunday, OTL decided to do some 'Deep Cleaning of the ferret cages but only managed to do one, Monty and Wendy's cage. Now we are not saying it was seriously grubby but  it hasn't been 'Deep Cleaned' for some time and to give you an idea of what it was like, the whole cage was dismantled and cleaned using the high pressure hose OTL normally reserves for cleaning the car or blasting the gunge off the paving slabs in the garden!

Well, to give you and idea of just how deep the clean was, it took all day to do just one ferret cage!

Holly and I went off to have a 'Cage Cleaning Snooze' and Monty & Wendy got transferred to the 'Holiday Cage' while OTL got busy!

You know he could have put the big bed in here!
 Well, it's all done now and we are off for some food, Doggy Scoff!

After all those nibbles yesterday I thing I might even forget the scoff tonight!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Another Dark and Rainy Day

Hello Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

This storm Gareth has supposed to dump a load of rain on us today but so far all we have had is some rain drops and a bit of wind!

This morning we were out early and OTL was saying how he has missed the sunrise over the last week or so and was going to take the camera with him today but when we got to the car park he decided that it was not a good idea, too much rain!

First there was a little rain!
 On the walk we went from rain to dry to rain and then dry and finished off with rain, just for a change!

Then it went dry for a short while!
Lunchtime was just as bad but as a change we went down to the carriers to drop off a box of stuff.

Good fun woofing at the truck drivers!

Tomorrow The Missus is off sloshing the glue about so we will be able to watch series two of Game of Thrones while nibbling our treats and of course we will be paws up on the sofa!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Sorry, here's £25 for your trouble!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

It has been a slow sort of day, Old Two Legs took us out first thing this morning and it was raining.

Lunchtime The Missus took us out, and it was raining.

OTL went off to the dentist, and it was raining.

It's been a sort of wet day today!

We knew that OTL was off to the dentist for a check up and that we would be taken out for our walk by TM but she didn't want to go on our normal route, something about it being too wet, too muddy, too bloody steep!

She is such a show off!

OTL got a letter from the Water People telling us that our water had been cut off for five days.

As if we didn't know!

However, as some recompense, they are going to send us a cheque for £25!

OTL says he is going to invest it in a bottle of water, 'The Water of Life' just in case the mains blow again, well you won't be able to make a cup of tea with it but after a few slurps you won't care anyway!

Good news, the dentist could find nothing wrong with OTL's teeth, and the inspection and an x-ray confirmed that!

It still cost him forty smackers though!

OTL has been busy this afternoon, he got one of those Dash Cams and has installed it into the big car. Don't know why he has got it really, unless it's to record where he has been so if he gets lost he just has to run the video backwards so he can get himself 'unlost'!

We got an email today saying that the order we placed for a DVD from the Harry Potter series is being dispatched today!

OTL says it's called 'The Crimes of Grindelewald' and is a follow on from the Fantastic Beasts DVD!

You know, it doesn't take much to get him excited!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

First the rain and wind then the sun shine!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Another fun day here in North Kent!

It was very windy first thing this morning and there was some rain in the air as well. Old Two Legs left the camera at home in case it got too wet!

In the mornings Holly and I get some shut eye while OTL cleans the ferret cages and allows them out for an hours rampage around the house.

Miss May gets her medication mixed with some lactose free milk and Eric gets first slurp from the big bowl of 'Ferret' milk!

Then it's play time!

Miss May spends her time eating the 'Brambles Biscutes'  while hiding underneath the sofa!

Eric, on the other paw, plays 'Hunt the Squeaky'. Today OTL managed to find fourteen squeaky balls and tennis balls and squeaky toys Eric had hidden under the TV!

Now that's not a bad haul but it didn't get The Missuses approval 'cos Eric had pinched one of the brand new Smoothies that TM holds dear to her heart!

OTL couldn't find it anywhere, so, Eric is still in trouble! Mind you, he now knows where the new smoothies are kept and as soon as he has worked out how to open the drawer, there will be all hell let loose!

Lunch time we were back down on the sea front but this time Eric and May were with us, seeing how they were still awake when it was time to go!

When they first set paws on the ground it was Eric who wanted to get into the bag!

This is just too windy for my liking!
 On the sea shore OTL put them down on the concrete sea wall and Miss May nearly fell down the step. She was walking one way but looking another way!

Soppy Missy!

OK, who took the ground away?
Luckily she didn't fall off and soon she was scrambling up the grass path ahead of Eric who was still asking to be put into the bag again!

Holly suggested we chase them up the path but OTL said he would chase us if we did!

Come on you two, one paw in front of the other, move!
It was all OK 'cos by the time we all got to the top they were in front of us and trotting along!

Every so often May stopped for a breather and Eric stayed with May until she was ready to carry on.

I remember when May used to walk beside her sister when she got out of breath. Now it's Eric's turn to help May along!

Tomorrow OTL is off to the dentist to get his teeth checked, let's hope it doesn't cost too much!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Another storm coming!

Hello Woofers!

We are here again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

I thought that the Spring was well on it's way but today has been horrid!

Old Two Legs says that it's all down to Gareth, who ever he is, and pretty soon he will raining on us and blowing the trees about!

I reckon he got here earlier than expected 'cos this morning it was raining with some rather strong wind blowing us into the bushes!

That wind don't 'arf get up yer tail!
Once we were into the bushes the wind dropped, clever OTL!

That was a bit draughty!
Lunchtime we were back out again and even with all the high wind, the blossom was still hanging onto the trees!


Now, don't it just look pretty?
Even when we went around the corner and got another blast of wind, the blossom was still hanging onto the tree branches!

This Hawthorn blossom is quite tough!
OTL got called out this afternoon to do some repairs at the local school. He reckoned that if he got down there by three he would beat them when they came out at three thirty.

What he didn't realise was the buses that take the little darlings home, were blocking the entrance to the visitors car park and it took him a whole half an hour to get to reception!

Holly says that the storm will still be here tomorrow morning and it looks like we will get soaked!

Mind you, if it's too bad both Holly and I will have a touch of the 'Vapours' and won't be able to go out!

Well, no further than the poo spot in the garden!

We haven't seen the flogs for a couple of days, Holly says it's because they don't like the rain.

How can a flog hate rain when it spends all the time in the pond swimming around making flog splawn?

We got chicken tonight and the promise of a chew if we eat all the chicken!

As if we would leave any chicken in the bowl!

See you tomorrow, providing the rain eases off!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

The begining of another week!

Hi Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret again!

After an exciting weekend we have settled down to busy week!

It started with Old Two Legs falling out of bed early this morning!

He didn't hurt himself but he did wake Holly and me!

Holly showed off and went down stairs to stay with The Missus while I gave OTL a kick and went back to sleep!

It wasn't long before he got up and after a slosh in the shower, we all headed off for the morning walk.

The sun was up but so were the clouds.
 We didn't meet any of the woofers that we would normally see but we spotted a bird nest box someone had put up in the tree. Holly says that it looks like a box a Blackbird or Thrush type of bird would use, mind you I would rather have a door to keep the rain out!

No one in there yet!
 Lunchtime was a little warmer but still windy. Holly sneaked off and had a roll in a sniff and totally ignored OTL when he was jumping up and down and calling out 'NO!'

Yeah, you got to catch me first!
The sun had come out and the blossoms looked all bright and pretty. It's a pity that the hawthorn blossom will have gone by the time the other blossoms burst forth!

Now, don't that just look pretty?
You know, we didn't see any rabbits today, not a single one to chase!

See you all tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

They sniff better now!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here again!

Sorry about yesterday, we had some serious engineering to do with the shower. You see, OTL got a replacement system and while the shower heater unit worked OK, we had problems with the mounting screws.

The screws were in different places to the original unit, so, OTL has been measuring, filling holes, water proofing mounting plates and loads of technical stuff that ended up with him working way past the time when the sun goes down!

You will be pleased to know that it all came right in the end and now the Two Legs in this house hold all sniff like wot they like to sniff like!

Mind you, Holly and I are keeping a close eye on them, just in case they fancy doing some more testing with the shower and Doggy Shampoo!

This morning we were out between the showers that were forecast for today, Old Two Legs studies the Internet weather radar and then it's a race to get us down to the sea shore, a quick wee an poo and back to the car again!

There was nothing exciting regarding the sunrise, in fact it was difficult to see most of the time!


Yep! There is is, over the back of the trees!
 Holly and I were sniffing for rabbits and we managed to miss one that OTL pointed out. He's good at spotting them cos he is tall and can see further that us woofers!

This way! He went in this way!
OK, well, you can't get them every time!

Yes I know, it's not the best sun rise we have ever seen!
Lunchtime was just the same except we got to see as hip coming into Sheerness and the waves were splashing all over the front of the ship!

Blow the main down Bonnie, blow the main down!
It was better when we got back home and OTL tried to catch the Flogs swimming around in the pond but they saw him open the kitchen door and dived down to the bottom of the pond!

There it was, gone! Just like the rabbits!
OTL has managed to get a pile of paperwork that needs his attention but he says that Sunday is a day of rest, not that he gets much rest when we are all around!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Friday, 8 March 2019

It all went 'Pop' again!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Well, not much has changed since yesterday, every time the Water Men mend the pipe, another bit goes pop and we are back to the beginning again.

Now, remember me telling you about the kettle going wrong? Guess wot?

This morning Old Two Legs had got up and wandered into the bathroom for a shower, the water was hot and under he went. He was soaping up all his important places with shower gel and generally enjoying the whole thing, that was until the water heater went pop and the hot water stopped being hot and turned into a stream of glaciated water to rain down upon his bald head!

Oh! Golly Gosh quoth OTL in his best South London language which included reference to the gods of showers!

Now, we are not saying that the low pressure in the water main caused the heating element to fail, but, coupled with the kettle failing we can only wonder!

Back to OTL.

So, having backed away from the jet of glaciated water, he then set about planning how to removed the mountain of shower gel soap bubbles from his person!

There he was with frothy bubbles dripping off his nose and other parts of his body!

Only one thing for it, take a big breath and walk back under the shower and do the quickest suds rinse in his life!

You should have heard his language!

You know, it took all day until four thirty for the water to get returned to normal!

Tomorrow we should have the new shower delivered and it will be another job for OTL!

Miss May and Eric came out for a walk at lunchtime and as normal, Eric spent nearly all of his time trying to get back into the bag but Miss May was running and rolling in the grass!

She does love a good roll in a sniff to round the day off!

So, in the end all has worked out right, The Missus will be up the hall tomorrow for some glue slapping, OTL will have to install a new shower and we will be looking forward to stretching out on the sofa for an afternoon of watching 'Game of Thrones' catchup!

Who knows, we will get OTL to take the camera out and record some more blossom!

Sorted!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.
