Yarn Envy

Envy is an ugly word.  What it really means is that you want something that belongs to someone and not to content with just feeling that, you want to take it off them.  And technically, the yarn doesn't really belong to anyone else anyway; it's available to purchase but having a non-existent yarn budget, I...

A Bird Song

The words of Christina Rossetti have spoken to me for a very long time; I am no scholar or reader and perhaps am really conscious of just one of her poems.  It was the first poem to ever 'speak' to me, the first that echoed some deep, inner sentiment of my own and translated it...

A Song

There is a certain song that I recognise, the faint piercing notes can be quite a distance away but my ear always picks it up.  But it's not just my ears, it's a song that will always speak to my heart.  I try to whistle a few notes back, despite the fact that I have... Continue Reading →

Birds without Words

Some photos from last week: Birdie - Blue Feisty - Red Manky - Yellow Sneaky - Orange Rocky - Green

More Breaking News

We think Rocky (unsurprisingly) and Birdie were the first out of the 'nest'.  Birdie suddenly seemed to put a sprint on and overtake his more developed siblings this last week. Sneaky has also flown now. Yes, three of them are out! They have flown out to the magnolia tree in a neighbour's garden.  Funny enough,... Continue Reading →

Breaking News

I'm sorry to bombard you with posts, especially if you've very kindly subscribed to have my posts delivered directly to your inbox, but this is breaking news that I just had to share.  First though, I'm sorry that there's no pictures but I'm a little behind with my processing but this is important. One bird... Continue Reading →
