Lazy sunday - wood mouse and friends.

By

Easter Sunday and time for those jobs that men always put off till another day .. and oh the excuses .

Cant clear the drains because ..

Cant weed the borders because ..

Cant clean the windows because something blocking the view ..

Well go and cut the grass then ..

Dont even think about it !

Well theres some decorating to do .. reckons cant find the paste brush ..

At least do some housework then .. dont tell me someones got your feather duster ..

Well just take your coffee and go and chill then ..

Reckons something beat him to that too .. Men !

Well crafted Jane. Very funny even to a mere man but you say "Men!" Does this mean Ron really does exist?

Hello Jane, since joining ispyabird I've been catching up on the blogs. I just love this one. My Mrs has me well trained, I just love the nice cuppa tea at the end of my daily chores. Your pictures lovely and has the mouse moved into the house for the winter??

Hi Tommy
Many thanks for visiting my blog.....sounds like you have a brilliant routine at home ! No the little mouse has not moved in for the winter but does still sleep in an empty birdbox which is attached to the wall !! It became quite friendly and would take titbits from my hand !! Thanks again...
