nice weather for ducks!
I didn't intend to write a post about ducks, no really I didn't! The weather has been utter rubbish around here but it does suit some. These guys were so very cute I couldn't resist dashing outside to take a couple of pictures. They appeared out of the garden of the house opposite us and rather terrifyingly dawdled across the road. Luckily it's not that busy a road so they made it across ok despite one little duckling getting slightly stuck on the drain cover. I though I might have to launch a rescue mission but thankfully it wasn't required.
It's reassuring in this, at times crummy and mean world we live in, that a little thing like seeing a duck and her ducklings can make you melt and fill you full of joy. I'm not sure who was more excited myself or Jamie. They really were unbearably cute and the little cheep, cheep noises were wonderful. What a sap eh! Anyway here is a little video clip, please excuse my ramblings and annoyance with the zoom not working on my phone. Oh and watch out for the little guy at the very end of the clip. Hope this works ok, not posted a video clip before.
