Yesterday in traffic I passed an old looking guy with a receding hairline and a graying goatee.

He was rocking out to the Foo Fighters.

Coulda done without that.

LOL!!! I think that was my husband, was there a nice-looking, erm..."mature" woman sitting next to him?





(to be honest, I thought you were going to say "then I realized I was looking in my mirror", hee hee)

I feel a lil distressed right now...some of it might still be acclimatization back into work after my Fall Holiday, Some of it might be because I just cant seem to succeed at sticking up the blasted blinds for the aviary or the heater connection...some of it might be because its autumn, and the darkness has once again started to close in.

Some of it might also be because on Wednesday this week my Father will be made redundant. Its his last day at work, and now we dont know what will become of my parents...everyone fears that they will almost certainly have to downsize from Mornington...and...quite possibly leave Harrogate all together...

..Whilst I am used to living away from them, thanks to three years at University and then Two years in London...the irony of moving to harrogate, a place I desteste in many ways, was only because I had to move back to be with them when I had no job and no home due to an injury that stopped me working...The irony that less then a decade later, they might move and sort of leave me here, in a town I never really wanted to be in is...strange.

There are fears my Sister Tiffany may be made redundant as they are cutting teaching positions at the Army Foundation College...and of course Sister Rosy hasnt lived actually in harrogate for years...meanwhile my Nan moved up in 2010 specifically to be near her daughter as she gets old...to find...less then three years later, her Daughter may move.

Our family is in a bit of turmoil at present...noone knows how this will work out...it just goes to show that as we think we are perfectly safe and the status quo will remain so forever...we are...always, all of us, only moments from a life changing event, whether negative or positive, and we should all never take forgranted all that we have in the way of other people and their support.

You're right, change can come when we least expect it. Would it be possible for your parents and your nan to live together?

Got home today to find three out of seven budgies dead.

Peggy the Pied
Franklin The Spangle
Josie

all perished through a combination of factors, some of which was my fault. Here is my offical explaination

I regret to inform you that Josie the Budgie died today in the Budgie Flight of the Pulver House of Birds Aviary at Markenfield. The Exact cause of death remains unknown. It is thought that a combination of disruption caused by the switch on of the aviary heater, the rearrangement of the provisions to allow for overnight zebra finch acclimatizatio...n prior to release following the dire finch breeding season, the yo-yo tempritures this week in particular the winds in the early part and the replacement of fortified seed with a lower brand, and lack of budgie blinds probably led to a poor imune system and a slight chill which wasnt picked up on due to the fact its dark in the morning and dark by evening at this time of year and I hadnt replaced my damaged torch, which I did so tonight. She was not alone, but perished along side Franklin the Spangle, in similar conditions for the same reason. A third Budgie called Peggy died of exposure a few days ago but was only discovered today after exposure to the ellements when I accidently left her in the flight on the worst night. I have taken steps to ensure that the circumstances which led to this occurance are most unlikely to happen again. This includes proper adequet and permanent lighting for the Aviary so birds can be better inspected. Less frequent use of the heater incase its a cause, the banning of overnight acclimatization in anyway when there is more then one cage, a commitment to having the budgie blinds completed by sundown on tuesday, the assurence that on windy days the Flights will remain offlimits to the budgies without supervision and the promise to never stray from fortified seed.
