Quite a weekend!
I was left in charge of assorted animals this weekend in Warwickshire where I'm currently living writing my next book. There's nothing like looking after someone else's livestock to make you feel responsible. So imagine how I felt when the river started flooding! First job was to move the duck, currently sitting on no less than 13 eggs (unlucky for some?!) in the rather smart house you can see here. Thankfully with the help of some lovely people in the village we shifted it away from the water - if we hadn't, the duck and her eggs would have been bobbing around in the muddy stream you can see forming along the side.
Next the chicken run. Water edging up under their hut. Luckily they clung to their roosts.
I managed to get the two rabbits out - fortunate really, as they've not learned how to swim yet.
And now I'm arming myself for further rain with storm-defying sequins.
I find them of great assistance in dealing with many of life's minor emergencies!
