He did let slip exactly what he got up to in the snow of a few weeks back.
He sneaked out of the garden to join all his feathered and furred friends for an ice skating extravaganza on the village pond of all things.
The ducks did look on in great disapproving amusement, they had never seen such a commotion, and all they wanted was a little bit of water to have a paddle in, not frozen sleepy stuff.
But its in a rabbits nature to make the most of such exciting events as a frozen pond and snow and how the young rabbits and their friends enjoyed themselves.
Great Aunt velvet stayed by the warmth of the stove and although her bones did suffer awfully in the cold weather she baked fresh supplies of cakes and soups to keep the young rabbits warm. The squirrels enjoyed the day too and brought a supply of their finest chestnuts to roast to keep paws warm..... very useful if you had happened to spend slightly too much time sitting on the ice...........................................................
We have been flat out decorating and trying to get the bathroom finished for when the bump arrives, its due on the 13th of march. I had taken some pictures of the progress but can't up load them at the moment as we have a sickly laptop. Its looking good though and we no longer have house pipes to fill the bath up.......we have taps!

I would like to give it too all the lovely bloggers who have been leaving Captain Rupert and I wonderful comments or who follow and pass by and take an interest in our wonky words and pictures....thank you to all of you........I would like to say thank you to My tiny little Plot for the post on what to plant on the shady side of the garden. Our veg patch is unfortunately a little shady which has its advantages with less watering but it left me thinking what do people plant in walled gardens on the shady side. I have ordered my seeds for the year and plan to start planting in the next week or two.
Have a lovely weekend, we are tiling the shower and painting skirting board and putting up more plaster board and Captain Rupert will be over seeing checking he approves but I think he liked the building site when it was a little more messy!
