Here’s the completed video of David and Christine’s 2012! Hope you enjoy!

Slow Progress and Free Tickets to see TED!

After ending my last blog with some optimism I begin this with saying that David and I never completed the stud wall yesterday. šŸ˜¦ We did cut the wooden beams for placement and David took off the old 1900 nogs but we never built the frame back up again much to my disappointment. šŸ˜¦

On a happier point, the Haith’s bird food arrived a day after I ordered them. They arrived via FedEx and the Goldfinches are eagerly gobbling up the seed! šŸ˜€

We have had many Goldfinches visiting as well as two faithful Blue Tits, and up to three male House Sparrows. I am very happy that the House Sparrows have visited, adding to the bio diversity of the yard. My mum also said that the Dunnock was spottedĀ hoppingĀ about the yard and helping himself to the dropped sunflower seeds yesterday. I do love Mr. Dunnock and I am very grateful that he has continued to visit and that he is getting some food, despite the hoard of Pigeons andĀ colonyĀ of rats that are inĀ competitionĀ for the feed!

I was amused when I got an email this morning from Vue Cinemas. I had entered aĀ competitionĀ last week to win preview tickets to the new comedy ‘Ted‘. David and I both think it will probably be awful, but today I found out I got two free tickets to see it! lol šŸ˜€ I just sat laughing at the computer for a few minutes and my mum thought I was mad! The screening is tomorrow, so I am planning a romantic date with David, we are going for a pizza before hand and then going to see the film. I just hope it all goes according to plan!
