Laughter and books make life a little easier

Them birds!

A new week brings new challenges and one of these happen to be the birds in our garden…

I’m pretty certain there is a competition running amongst the birds in our garden and that competition involves hitting as many pieces of the white underwear and other light-coloured things on the washing-line as possible with their er… missiles.

I just hate getting dressed and then suddenly finding that the clothes I have on is bird-stained. Because I get dressed in semi-darkness and usually also hang my clothes in the cupboard at night, the likelihood of me finding the stain only after I already put the clothes on is just that much greater. It is my spring/summer frustration! πŸ˜›


In other news that has nothing to do with birds, in my last post I mentioned making a series of Lord of the Rings graphics that I will share with you. The time has now come! I am now posting a 30 Day Lord of the Rings challenge on my Tumblr, for the entire month of September. Those of you who are interested in viewing it can go to my Tumblr, or if you want to avoid the rest of the fangirling that goes on on my Tumblr, you can use this direct URL to only view these challenge posts.
Oh, and here’s a little preview: πŸ˜‰


You’ll have to click through to view the rest because I’m obnoxious like that. πŸ˜›


Now I’ll leave you and go and… er, procrastinate some more? Oh, and listen to my new soundtrack obsessively, because that is what I do. My friend and I watched the movie Brave this weekend and since then I’ve been in love with its soundtrack. I just love the Celtic sound. Besides, it’s a cute movie and I’m not quite sure what all the feminist critics are complaining about.

  2. hahahahahaa!!! I bet them birds also have a firing competition to hit moving targets! Long time ago, I was riding my bicycle downhill when a missile hit me on the forehead. It was a macaw for shure and I ended up looking like Gene Simmons. It was gross and humiliating, but I bet that bird won 1000+ bonus points for doing that to me that day.

    • Ooooh yes! Hehehe, moving targets…! πŸ˜† Also, don’t try it with a peacock. They’re quite good at earning 1000 bonus points as well. πŸ˜‰
