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‚Äôt 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 ‚Äúsmall‚Äù 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 ‚ÄúBob‚Äôs your uncle‚Äù you have a bird feeder.
ps Sylvia‚Äôs grandchild arrived safely on Friday weighing in at a healthy 11lb and has been named Peter Andrew.
