Wiggly water babes

By Heather 11 years ago

There has been a degree of mirth and merriment in the office today having heard the full car and puddle story, from the horse’s mouth. Apparently Rach was on her way to collect Pam when she came across a puddle outside Pinkie’s house (unbeknown to Rach this puddle is notorious, well in Preston on Wye anyway!). Part the way through she realised that it was a “no goer” and decided to reverse out. She tried to lower the window, but it refused to work so instead (bearing in mind she was in the middle of a not inconsequential puddle) she decided to open the car door. This was absolutely fine until she started to reverse when waves of muddy water started washing over the door sill. Having extricated herself from said puddle she tried to turn around in a gateway and in doing so managed to knock a panel off the bottom of the car. She limped back to the Wiggly office where Pip managed to fix the panel back onto the car whilst she bailed it out… with a mug. The Wiggly car is looking very sorry for itself today with steamed up windows and smells none too sweet.

Water, water everywhere and lots of Wiggly tea!

Today has been a slightly strange day at Wiggly Wigglers and we have been distinctly thin on the ground on the staff front. Jo wasn’t able to make her way in through the floods this morning and Rach, Pam and Jodie have been out all day attending a management workshop. On her way to the course Rach tried to trash the Wiggly car by driving it into a “small” puddle. For some strange reason she then decided to open the door, meaning that poor Jodie sat with her feet in water all the way to Worcester! Back in the office San, Tanya and I held the fort and were treated to not one, but two, cups of tea made by Tanya, which I promised I would mention. I must add that they were extremely good brews, but we definitely need to sample more!

Just after Christmas I did a post about making your own bird feeders and Tanya mentioned that she had busy with her children making some with their very own built in perches (see picture above). To make them tie a piece of cord around the centre of a twig and pass the free end of the cord through a small hole in an empty(!) coleslaw or similarly sized pot and fill the pot with a 50/50 mixture of melted lard and bird seed (adult supervision required for this stage). Once it has set you can remove the pot and “Bob’s your uncle” you have a bird feeder.

ps Sylvia’s grandchild arrived safely on Friday weighing in at a healthy 11lb and has been named Peter Andrew.
