More Digging

IMG_6493[1], originally uploaded by j.twinn.

Yet more digging. Captain Rupert has been helping us dig the new oil pipe in ready to to very sadly get have a oil rayburn to replace the solid fuel one. It was a bit of a big job for just captain rupert and he sneaked off to eat some more of the strawberry leaves and my nice blue houseplant pictured a few posts below which sadly has no flowers now..

I have just ordered the oil and its due to turn up early next week. Its going to be very sad for the old rayburn to go but I will be very happy not to have two rayburns sitting in the kitchen its just not big enough. The new old one has been with us for about 5 months. Its been really hard to find someone willing to fit a second hand oil rayburn.

Captain Rupert is looking forward to warming his toes and cooking carrot stew in front of the rayburn when its in and fitted.

Your bunny almost looks like a ceramic statue!! But it sure is a beauty!

this is my patch said...

Captain Rupert is most unusual, I know nothing about rabbits, is he a rare breed? Does he do your weeding for you as well!

Cap'n Rupert you sure are a helpful bunny. Don't work too hard, you gotta pace yourself so your Mum doesn't then expect too much of you :-)

Those ears:)
I do think it's a good thing that Captain Rupurt can sneak off when the work gets to be TOO MUCH. I have heard that the captain makes a very tasty, modern carrot stew;)

Oh you will be toasty warm then, just in time for winter...I forsee cosy evenings in the kitchen with a certain rabbit enjoying the heat.

dear Joanna,
My Tellie boy has asked me to inquire if Captain Rupert has a costume for Halloween?
Many thanks in advance.

Captain Rupert is always so busy, where does he get his energy from?
I need him to dig holes for my tulip bulbs!

How lovely to snuggle up with Captain Rupert next to a rayburn.
