It’s such a beautiful day today. Even though the chicks that we had to rescue from Calypso (the bad mother) are still very young, we decided to let them walk around on some grass. Al made this chick compound a few years ago. We’ve lost little chicks before. A crow could easy take them.
Trudi sits absolutely transfixed.

The chicks.

The chicks.

Here they are in all their glory. It’s far too early to name them. Sadly, they may not survive. There’s a long way to go yet. (Sorry didn’t mean that to sound like blackmail!)

Why didn’t I think of it before? I’ve ordered Vogue from Brett’s and asked Olivia not to write on it! I’m a genius!!!!!

What Sweeney’s have done wrong (Part 2)

June 10th, 2009 5 comments

vogueLook at what they’ve done to Julieanne Moore’s neck this month. (for previous problems, see: What Sweeney’s have done wrong).  Trust me, the real thing looks much worse – it’s very hard to write with a biro on a super glossy cover, you can’t help embossing the first 10 pages. There is plenty of space elsewhere as the background is blue sky. Whoever does this seems to hate beautiful women. Why is it always chests and necks?
I plucked up the courage to speak to the manager last week…. “please don’t scribble on the cover of Vogue with a biro”. I could see he thought I was a lunatic. “We’ll take it on board” he said. I think that means…”yeah, whatever” in management speak.
Still, after a shaky couple of weeks when they ran out of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (see: What Sweeney’s have done right. ), they have more in stock so I’m grateful for that. Also, they’re half hidden away so you have to know where to look for them. (I’m not telling).
