A Day of Yuk!

Hi Woofers!

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

I don't know what it is like where you are but down here in Sunny North's Yuk!

I mean, no sun, serious misty fog and very wet grass!

Eric was OK with the wet grass, he was enjoying a good 'ferret' in the clover but Miss May had a little run, a wee and then decided that a wet tum was a very good reason to get back into Old Two Legs arms!

OTL was busy this morning doing some 'Manufacturing' so we all headed for our day beds for a well earned snooze, until lunch time!

Miss Wendy came out with us and had great fun in the clover, there is something about wet clover that they just love!

Holly on the other paw thinks that any hint of damp is something to be avoided!

Freddy is spending a lot of time snoozing nowadays, OTL says it is because he is getting old and in need of snoozing. Well, he is about seven years old and that is a good age for a ferret!

We have to make plans to go down to the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue next week to drop off the donation made by the ladies of the Allhallows Crafty Group, they did a magnificent job of raising a donation that will help with the vet bills and care of all the ferrets that find their way to Harrietsham!

The weather fores cast has just said that the South East will be getting some rather heavy rain and thunder and lightening!

We are off to find a safe place to hide in!

See you tomorrow!

I manage another splosh!

Hello Woofers!

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

Not such a sunny day today but as we are expecting some more rain later this week we will have to put up with the storms!

Eric and May came out with us this morning and Eric was having a right rampage through the grass. It was still wet from yesterdays rain and after a while Miss May decided she would rather be cuddled up in Old Two Legs arms until she got back to the football field when she was down on her paws and racing across the field!

Once we got home Eric was off searching for The Missuses 'Smoothies'!

He has something about those sponge things especially if they are covered in ink!

Lunchtime was fun, we left Wendy snoozing while Holly and I  went off for a sniff. Now, the tide was right in and I fancied a quick dip but OTL was just too close and he waved his finger at me and I got the message!

Well, how about a 'Little' paddle?
 We wandered along the Sea Wall and sniffing at the sniffs. OTL got all interested in a snail wot was having a mid day snooze.

Holly said that the snail should be called Freddy on account he was snoozing at midday!

Doing a 'Freddy'!
I took advantage of OTL and the snail and ran ahead and down to the beach. As he disappeared over the horizon, in I went!

I had a splosh and managed to get my tummy all wet!

Holly, on the other paw did wot she always does and stayed off the beach!

The afternoon was spent snoozing while OTL got the paperwork ready for the accountant and he has informed us that we will be getting a wash and hair cut this weekend all ready for our holiday!

We don't mind the holiday bit, it's the wash and hair cut that we are not looking forward to!

Let's hope the rain misses us tomorrow!

We were tickled pink with Auntie Di's Happy Birthday song for Eric and she even got to mention the Poo!

Happy Birthday Eric de Ferret!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and the birthday boy, Eric de Ferret!

Yes, it's Eric's birthday today! He is all of two years old! Normally we call the day a ferret arrives here as their birthday but with Eric we can identify the very day he was born!

Today the sun has sort of gone away, I mean, like it has been raining ever since we got up this morning!

All through the morning it got heavier and heavier until it got so bad that both Holly and I had to creep into Old Two Legs office and hide under the desk!

So many lightening strikes and big bangs of thunder and on top of that the rain came down in bucket loads!

One good thing, the ferrets got their early morning walk along the sea front although Miss May had to be picked up for a cuddle on the way back. Not all the way, just a little way until she got all twitchy and wanted a run across the football field!

The pond is now almost up to over filling and there is a Bloom come out on the Lilly Pad!

Bloom Number One!
 The Missus had to head off to the TL Vet to get stabbed against Dingles, or summat like that and it coincided with the rain coming down in bucket loads, just as Holly wanted to go out for a wee.

Holly decided to hang on for a bit! She is not the same as Archie Babe who doesn't mind a drop of rain while having a wee and a sniff all at the same time!

This afternoon Old Two Legs headed out to visit a customer who wanted to have some radios re programmed. It was one of those 'Panic Jobs' that crop up every so often!

Panic over Holly and I settled down to a snoozy cuddle under the desk!

Just for a laugh, we all got together and sang Eric our 'Happy Birthday' song, it went like this.........


OK, One Nine Fifty Six!

Happy Birthday to Eric
Although he's small and quite Spheric
Happy Birthday to de Ferret
Happy Birthday to Poo!

It was rather difficult finding a word rhyming with Eric!

Lunchtime OTL found a 'Window' in the rain clouds and we managed to get a quick Wee and a Poo before he was off to work.

As it was Eric's birthday The Missus had left out her box of sponge balls called 'Smoothies' now, Eric just loves them and he thought it was one of his presents, so he kicked the box off the table, jumped down and ran off with several Smoothies and hid them in a cardboard tube he was given over the weekend!

It was after Eric had gone back to bed that TM found her stashed Smoothies and managed to hide them back in the box again!

We all reckoned that Eric will have them out again before long!

See you all tomorrow!

Loads of Tourists Today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Happy Bank Holiday to everyone and just for a change we have had sun shine all day long!

Both Eric and May enjoyed a ferret first thing this morning 

Bet he can't see us!
 Being Springtime the flowers were out and looking all fresh, we wondered what he was doing taking a picture of this one!

Look, no bugs!
Holly and I had some fun chasing the rabbits this morning but as normal, we let them get away!

 OK, can I go chasing the rabbits now?
 Lunchtime it was too hot for Wendy to go out for a walk so we had Old Two Legs all to ourselves!

He spotted a 'Small Heath' butterfly and managed to get this shot before it flew off again!

OK, this is my Best Side!
 There were loads of tourists all parked up in the car park so we had to go around to the football field car park!

I'll be glad when Tuesday comes and we get the beach to ourselves!
 Mind you, I did manage to get in for a quick dip!

Come on Holly Chops it's wonderful in the water!
 Unfortunately, Holly didn't share my love of water and slunk off to find some shade!

I don't do wet!
 This afternoon we spent snoozing while OTL was 'Doing the Books' and getting ready for tomorrow!

Hey! We forgot to show you a picture yesterday.

Who's a Lucky Lady!

This is Pauline and her friend Maggie who both travelled down from Warwick.. Maggie won the Lavinia Stamps  Gift Set of  crafty products !

But they didn't get the 'Ferret Cake'!

OTL has been stuffing his face today and The Missus managed to get a nibble of the cake as well!

See you all tomorrow!

We are in need of a rest!

Hi Woofers!

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

Aha! I see it is a 'Welcome Back' to the McGoodes after their marathon trip around Scotland and now it back to cutting down all the weeds and cutting the grass that seems to have grown up with a gallop!

There is a rather aggressive plant that arrived last year in our garden, next to the pond, and it sort of killed off a number of plants. This year Old Two Legs was out there digging up all the root stock that looked like tubers. Now, as you know, they always come back and grow again! OTL managed to sprain the tendons in his hand and now has decided to try poison! So that it doesn't spread over other plants, he has gone out with a syringe and a bottle of plant poison and injected the stems and also squirted the weed killer over the leaves as well!

We can report that there are a few rather sick looking weeds!

We can also report that there are more stems sprouting up in new places, so, tomorrow OTL is out again with the syringe to attack the new growth!

Poor old Archie Babe, fancy not being allowed a little nibble of a morsel! That is no reason to have a muzzle shoved onto your nose! I mean, a lads just got to have a treat once in a while!

The Missus has been up the Village Hall all today finishing off the 'Crafty Thong Thingy' and we can see that she will be totally worn out for the next few days!

Hey! OTL has had a couple of rather large lumps of the 'Ferret Cake' and has pronounced it as being 'Brilliant'! Holly and I tried to get a nibble but OTL growled at us which we took to be a warning!

I can see that if ever Tracy makes another cake for the event OTL will be making a seriously large number of attempts to win again!

Well done Tracy!

Good news, tomorrow is Bank Holiday so no work for us but OTL will be out on his knees stabbing weedy plants, so, is that working or having fun in the sun shine?

See you all tomorrow!

Guess Wot OTL Won?

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, wot can we say? Today the Allhallows Croppers have really done themselves proud!

Today they had their Crafty Thong Thingy to have a great day doing wot they love doing. There was card making, drawing, sewing, stamping, cutting out and stuff to do with fabric and an ironing board!

No, don't ask but Eric was threatened with a quick iron of his tail if he didn't behave himself!

There was a super raffle with amazing prizes donated by the lovely ladies!

Lovely Ladies!

Here is a few pictures of the table and the prizes!

This table was on the extreme left hand side..........then the following came next!

............and finally this one was on the right!
 Wow! There were some classy stuff on the table. Loads of crafty stuff donated by Lavinia Stamps and Sweet Poppy Stencils and Candy Box Crafts and Visible Image Stamps and The Artistic Stamper a craft shop in Favesham! Of course there were bottles of Giggle Juice and perfume and crafty stuff and we saw a beautiful big box of colouring pencil thingywottsits!


Then there was the 'Guess the Weight' or 'Guess the Name' and 'Pick the Number' and 'How Many Gems in The Jar'.

Now this had super bottles of wine and a cake wot we showed you yesterday made by Auntie Tracy Hastings!

Old Two Legs had fallen in love with the cake cos it was a fruit cake and it had a picture of a snoozy ferret on it!

So, with some of his pocket money he had a go at guessing the weight and blow us down with a ferrets tail............................HE WON, HE WON, HE WON, HE WON!!!!!!!

There he was, one seriously happy OTL!

Another seriously happy ferret was little Miss Wendy who found young Rosie waiting to give her a cuddle!

Miss Wendy and Rosie!

Miss May took a fancy to Miffy and stayed cuddled up for ages!
 Of course, there were the normal bunch of hooligans who made loads of noise!

Trubble if ever we saw it!
Of course, everyone else behaved themselves, most of the time!

How did they get in here?
 Of course, a big thank you to Karen and Eileen (The Cat Woman & The Missus) for putting on the whole day!

The Cat Woman and TM!
OTL also took a fancy to these super looking cakes and even managed to get a slice!

Happy Birthday Sue! The cakes went well with a cup of tea!
 See you all tomorrow!

Friday Fun

Hi Woofers!

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

I must say, this long run of good weather is really great. The ferrets get some fresh air, providing the temperature is just right and not too hot, damp or wet!

First thing this morning Eric and May had great fun chasing 'Things' in the grass. When we ask what they were chasing we were told 'Ferret Things'!

The Missus has been busy today getting herself organised for the weekend festivities. We were shown a picture of a cake being baked for the 'Guess the Weight' and would you believe it has a picture of a ferret on it!

We just had to ask who made it, certainly not TM! We have Auntie Tracy Hastings to thank for this super cake and she is a friend of 'The Cat Woman' who, incidentally, has been the Chief  Organiser and Whip Cracker this year!

Now normally we wouldn't eat cake but in this instance, we would be willing to make a change and get our eating gear straight in!

Eric says he thinks he knows the ferret in the picture!
Old Two Legs will be buying several 'Guesses' 'cos he just loves cake!

Holly and I have asked if we can help the winner nibble around the edges!

There will be loads of donations from the 'Craft Maunufacturers' to be won in the raffle and we did hear that there is a bottle or two of Giggle Juice!

OTL has been busy today getting all his 'Engineering' packed and off to the carrier so that the weekend is free for 'Relaxing'. Well, he can relax after the poo shovelling and woofer walking and there is some gardening to be done and of course we will be meeting up with Uncle Miffy again. He is the one who used to go climbing mountains with OTL, when he was younger!

Nowadays OTL has trouble climbing the stairs!

OK, we are off for some Doggy Scoff and an early night 'cos we have to be up early to help get the village hall organised.

See you tomorrow and OTL should have some photo's of the fun and games!


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

A Seriosly Lazy Day!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, it has been a sort of boring day today, boring 'cos Old Two Legs has been 'Engineering' and cutting and chopping bits and on top of that he even had the soldering iron out!

We were up early and although it wasn't sunny, it was mild with a gentle breeze.

Eric and May had fun in the grass sniffing the sniffs and May even got in a good roll in a sniff!

This is better than hiding in the rubbish bin!
 Eric, being the gentleman, sort of, agreed to keep a watch out for OTL, just in case he tried to stop the roll!

Keep going, he's messing about with the camera!
Back home we headed for the bed for a snooze while OTL did his jobs before going back to 'Engineering' again. That was until lunch time.

You see The Missus pinched the car to go and get a shampoo and set. Holly and I reckon she should have gone to ask OTL to get his clippers out and give her a trim!

OK, we know she hasn't got a tail but providing she doesn't fidget too much, OTL could soon zoom over her with with the electric shears!

Lunchtime we took Wendy out with us 'cos she likes a run on the sea front. Freddy was snoozing in bed and said he was 'Too Tired' so we left him at home. Well, he is getting a bit old now and tearing around just doesn't appeal to his sense of adventure any more, he'd rather curl up in the cuddle cup nowadays!

Wendy still likes a run although she is not into rolling in the sniffs but rather would ferret about looking for Nargles!

Bet you didn't see me creeping up on you!
 Holly and I sampled the sniffs and then pretended we hadn't seen Wendy so we let her jump out at us and we both went Ooh! and pretended to fall over on our tails!

No, I don't see her at all, I wonder where she is hiding?
TM has been very productive this afternoon, one card, well she doesn't want to over do it does she?

This weekend is going to be an orgy of crafting with loads of ladies bringing their stuff along to enjoy a weekend of doing what they want!

We have been invited to come up and say hello and OTL will be bringing the ferrets to say hello to everyone as well.

There is bound to be loads of nibbles and at lunchtime there is fish and chips for everyone!

Holly is practising her 'Hungry Look' so with a bit of luck we won't have to eat that Doggy Scoff we normally get served with when TM has been out crafting!

See you all tomorrow.

Finished the rocks!

Hi Woofers!

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

Another wonderful day with some glorious sun shine. Eric and May had a great time sniffing in the undergrowth and under the tufts of grass!

After the morning walk we headed home and guess wot I saw?


We hadn't even got out of the car park and there it was, sitting in the middle of the road, licking his tail and paying no notice to us!

Well, I wasn't having any of that and as Old Two Leg stopped the car I let go with a low down grumbly growl which is a prelude to some serious woofing!

Wot a Cheek!
This cat just sat there, I mean, does he think he owns the place?

OTL had the answer though, we crept forward a couple of feet so we was almost on top of the cat and then, just as the cat stuck his leg in the air another couple of inches OTL hit the hooter and


That cat went vertical from a seated position and we were sure he went sideways at the same time!

That got him sorted!

Lunchtime we left Freddy and Wendy asleep ''cos it was a little too warm for them to come out.

When we got to the car park Holly spotted some Two Legs munching away and thought she might just get a nibble or two!

Poor Holly, they took no notice of her and carried on stuffing their faces!

Not fair, it's just not fair!
 The local council have cut the grass very short this year and as such we have not seen much of the insects that we used to see. The swallows and butterflies and bugs seem to have disappeared this yer. So, it was exciting seeing a small butterfly on the clover. OTL tried to focus up on it but it kept on flying away every time he got close!

Dunno what it is but it's the size of a 5p piece!
 Not having the ferrets means we can have a sniff without worrying about getting a nip on the tail!

Mind you, there is a sort of excitement of not knowing if you are going to get a ferret diving between your paws!

I keep looking around expecting one of those ferrets to jump out!

OTL went down to the gardening centre and got another eight bags of pebbles and has been spreading them about and I must admit, it looks rather good!

Another plan is to get a big urn and plant it in the middle of it all!

When he gets it all finished I'll take a photo of it to let you see what he has done!

Today OTL got an order that requires some engineering so we reckon that for the next two or three days he is going to be a busy little OTL!

I suppose that means Holly and I will be looking forward to some extra snoozing!

See you tomorrow!


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

TM Gets into Nuking the dust!

Hi Woofers!

Another hot day for us all, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Living in the South East of the country we certainly get all the sunshine that is on offer! A little cloudy to begin with but later on its been Hot, Hot, Hot!

Eric and May came out with us first thing and then at lunchtime Wendy and Freddy. Freddy said it was just too hot and stayed cuddled up in Old Two Legs arms but Miss Wendy had fun sniffing the sniffs.

After lunch, The Missus and OTL went out in the big car. They had to take the big car 'cos OTL is 'Investing' in a few bags of 'River Pebbles' to finish off the back end of the garden.

No grass, unless it is weed and a woofer poo quickly bakes then gets washed away with the rain!

So, OTL being careful with his dosh stood looking at a bag of pebbles with the sign that said it was £7 per bag. Then, he looks over to the next rack to see the same pebbles, in a different coloured bag but with no price tag.

As one of the employees was passing, OTL grabbed him and whispered in his ear 'Wot's the price of those pebbles in the bag with no price tag?'

Ummm! Says the employee, 'Them over there are £7 a bag and the one wiv no price is £3 per bag, bloody rip off if yer ask me!'

Ha! Says OTL, I'll have the £3 ones! Then he loads a barrow up with ten bags!

Well, they have been spread around in the place where they are supposed to go and OTL now finds he needs another seven or eight more bags to do a good job!

That's a job for tomorrow.

Seeing all the dust and grot in the back of the car reminded TM she promised herself a new vacuum cleaner and as the shop was close she spent a good half an hour comparing cleaners. Finally she came out with a Thermonuclear Powered Super Sucking Cordless Vacuum Cleaner!

This one is so powerful that she can ride it just like a Harry Potter Flying Broom!

She has been flying around the village making a right load of noise, we will get the neighbours complaining soon!

See you all tomorrow!


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

Monday, 21 May 2018

Another busy Day!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a super day it's been! A bit misty first thing but this afternoon the sun has bee baking hot!

Lucky for Old Two Legs, he got an 'Expurt' in to install the new water heater in the caravan and now that it's finished it look real Posh and better still, it works!

Our morning walk was with Eric and May who spent most of the time playing 'Chase The Ferrets Tail'

That was until they got all worn out when the got to the football field!

OK, I give in, let's go and beat up a woofer!
 The sky was all cloudy but it was still mild and Eric reckons the sun will be out this afternoon, he's getting all knowledgeable, just like Holly Chops!

Next he will be talking about isobars and cold fronts!
 Lunchtime it was good to see Freddy de Ferret out in the sunshine. Nowadays Old Two Legs gives him a cuddle and calls him Freddy the Fearless on account that when ever there is any trouble he turns his back and ignores all the fuss!

Fearless Freddy hiding from the Nargles!
 Now, we know that Eric is always up for some mischief and will often try to give Holly a nip on her back legs. Freddy, on the other paw has never got involved in any of that troublesome behaviour. That is why when Holly comes up behind Freddy she always asks if he is 'Alright'!

Are you OK Fearless?
 Miss Wendy is the one who loves a jog but Freddy just ables along, minding his own business and every so often stops and gets a carry from OTL!

OTL, can I have a carry please?
Freddy is getting on in years and doesn't do the racing he used to do, he is more of a 'Thinker' than a 'Rampager'!

Mind you, he is always first out of the ferret travelling cage and first into the feeding bowl!

So, after all has been done today, OTL has declared that the caravan is ready for the holiday and that should be in three weeks.

All we got to do now is to get the inside cleaned and vacuumed and we can be off!

We are all looking forward to dipping our paws in the sea and even Holly said she might have a small paddle!

Ooooh! She is so brave!

See you tomorrow.


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