Day was just breaking at 5.30 am and the morning birdsong was not just a chorus, but more of a symphony!!! It's been a long time since I stood in the garden at that hour and it was simply breathtaking. Magical.
I think I could hear at least 8 different birds singing different tunes but it was a lovely harmonious thrilling whole. GOOD MORNING!!!! THEY SANG IT LOUD, THEY SANG IT PROUD.
It made me think that getting up at the time was a blessing rather than a rude awakening...
I had fallen asleep at 1.30 am at last as Pippa wouldn't settle and between her whining and the pups squealing for their mum it had been another busy night.
Above is Lucy as she is today 9th March: sleepy and yet confident , now weighing in at over 1,000 grammes!!! All of them have gained 11 % of yesterday's bodyweight in the past 24 hours.
As you can see Lucy is now more than 2 hands full. Her ears have come down but she still has her eyes firmly closed.
Hence we'll leave it there for today, fingers crossed for OPEN eyes tomorrow?
Here are a few vignettes of my walk around Thame today, Pippa also had her first proper walk for more than 30 minutes away from her pups and she LOVED it, running after rabbits and generally behaving as if she'd been confined for years not just one week......
A little posy I crocheted yesterday and wore to work today...Pattern on the blog of ''Attic 24''.
Still always stitching and hooking you see?
St Mary's church for a little Midsomerness......
