How's your week been so far?
Sorry we missed Mondays post, the P.A. was quite upset after some news she got on Caturday regarding her accident. Apparently the dude who caused the accident through his sheer stupidity and negligence didn't have any insurance, he has a Limited company but no company insurance can mew believe that - no she couldn't either!!! So she's several thousand out of pocket now for fixing the mess he made in the house; fixing the plumbing abomination he left, all the leaks and putting right the damage to 3 ceilings - 2 from water damage he caused and the one she fell through, plus all decorating that if there'd been no damage was totally fine and didn't need doing, plus medical expenses etc etc etc and she has no way to recoup the losses caused by that fluffing chump as apparently he's totally potless... fan-freaking-tastic!
So the chump is laughing his socks off that he's gotten away with it, when his negligence could have easily have killed or paralyzed the P.A. [she was so lucky her injuries weren't worse] and there's nothing anyone can do about it - what an absolute flufftard, and to think a dangerous chump like that is allowed to run a supposed legit business.
She's still struggling with her injuries, and it'll take another few months yet.
If they are wurking at height or with ladders, make sure mew see that they've had propurr training and are fully insured to wurk at height because if they fall and sustain injury - it will be your fault and cost mew. Get them to sign indemnity's too if possible.
The P.A. is seriously peeved by all of this and none of it is her fault, yet she's the one who's still suffering and severely out of pocket - sometimes there's just no justice!
Anyhoo on a lighter note....It's The Great BBHQ Burd Watch - today with Melvyn.
But furst - Many apologies to the Tabbies of Trout Towne, please scroll down without reading!
Melvyn was hanging out in the dressing room window watching that great, big fat pigeon perched in the tree, when he said and I quote, "There's good eating on that!" OOPS! MOL!
Swiftly moving on... See the new purple feeder on the tree? That has a special blend of peanut butter burd food, and the little burdies really seem to like it... more on who visits it next time as we've had some newcomers in the garden this week.
We also use large plant-pot saucers as burdbaths, and we put a rock in the middle so the smaller burds have something to perch on. There are 3 of that type plus two tall ones around the garden, and the larger burds can also bathe and drink from the pond as there's rockery exit ramp in one corner.
We wash the feeders and baths on a regular basis in hot soapy water with a dash of mild disinfectant, as mew do need to keep the facilities clean - we have two sets to rotate - then there's no downtime in feeding, as we definitely don't want a burd rebellion happening! MOL
So more on the BBHQ Winter Burd Watch series soon.
And finally in this weeks news round-up, Parsley sent $60 AUD to Animals Australia yesterday, so thanks again for all the comments and later this week we'll action our next one, so stay tuned fur that, as we've got a really nifty idea brewing!
Amber will be here on Friday with a cute book she can't wait to share with mew all, so do stop by the library, tea and nip cookies will be served, and we hope to see mew then!
