I have been looking forward to this new season, with its sunshine and warm days after too many cold days in old Edith this long winter. I was hoping that my wreath would help by adding some colour to greet us at the front door. Especially since I'm not sure that there's any flowers lurking in the beds in front of Edith.
To add to happy news around here, I did get the job at the flower/garden shop. You probably guessed as much since I have been absent from blogging recently. I work with some lovely people in a fairly relaxed environment with opportunities for creativity, which is a nice way for me to ease back into the work world. It's still early days for me, which means I've lots and lots to learn and it also means I'm making some lifestyle adjustments. Please bear with me, as I intend to keep sharing sewing projects etc. with you here.
My last bit of good news might sound a bit odd, but it's very happy news for this household. See that wind chime in the above photo? Well, that seems to be the solution for keeping those dirty, noisy and bothersome pigeons off our window ledge. The idea came to me over the weekend as I was once again awakened by their incessant cooing. The wind chime hangs right in front of the area they were trying to build another nest and so far, it has kept them away. I'm hoping we've seen (and heard) the last of these feathered pests. I would much sooner listen to the wind chime than that annoying cooing (there's nothing melodic about it - it's rather like the bird version of amorous moaning and groaning or "pigeon p*rn"as we refer to it. They get so loud that we have to pound our fist on the wall above the window to get them to stop and fly away.) Now you know what to do if our amorous pigeons relocate to your place. ;o) LOL
