Larking about in the mud with my birthday bra

Fit like loons and qines?

I was talking to an Aberdonian friend of mine yesterday morning and I forgot he liked to speak in Doric, a dialect from up that way.

So Fit like loons and qines! means How are you doing boys and girls?

Yesterday was my birthday and we were meant to goto a sea aquarium but the train strike put paid to that.

In the end I decided I would rather hike upto Raith Lake and feed some of the wildlife.

However being summer the overgrown foilage was like a jungle, now that the lake has closed the fishery business it is only the odd dog walker that wanders round it.

That is the spot where I usually feed the swan family.

Well, I could not see them, but I did hear them splashing around. So I threw food over the reeds and called them. I did hear them eating so that was good.

On the way to the other end of the lake, I went past the local laundry line.

It seems the two cup coconut bra had become a three cup coconut bra! I wondered who had moved into the area.

And there discarded on the ground was another three cup coconut bra. Me things the lady doth have too much money to be carelessly discarding her laundry in public!

Unperturbed I went bird-hunting, whilst Mrs T did a spot of mudlarking!

Hands up if you know what mudlarking is?

A mudlark is someone who scavenges in river mud for items of value, a term used especially to describe those who scavenged this way in London during the late 18th and 19th centuries.

source wikipedia

So whilst I was photographing the birds and doing my Eddie Wildlife part, she was scouring the water's edge for pottery or glass shards.

She was so focused on her finds, that she had not realised that I had successfully called three swans to me. She turned round and saw three swans making a beeswan line for the shore, and in her haste to get to a safe distance manged to fall arse first in the mud, as she put it. I missed all this as I was delighted to see that the three swans were actually three of the missing children from Beveredige Park that I had not seen since last year!

I did promise @jane1289 a duckey shot and here is a baby duckling just for you, It is not until the winter that they will show their adult colouring of plumage, so I don't know if it is a loon or a quine!

image.png

It has been a chaotic week and we are off to the charity shops to donate some more things. I will make a more detailed post of this eventful walk next week, but in the meantime @coquicoin I will leave you with three of the pies, can you remember their names? There are two girls and a boy here!

Yesterday was your birthday? Oh my! I am so sorry partner. I was at the dentist all day and didn't engage that much except for Emoji craziness.

Happy birthday to you, partner. You are a wonderful person and I sincerely appreciate how awesome you are. I wish you many more years to come with joy and excitement... More trophies for Rangers too 🥰🥰🥰.

I know you don't like Pizza but we need to celebrate...

I still have that hope that Liverpool might bounce back when they are settled with their injury and suspension crisis. Arsenal? They know how to give hope and then dash it. Let's hope they can push this year.

Anyone can beat anyone. Seeing how city faltered against Newcastle and Liverpool still struggling, if it continues we might see another unexpected team top the league.

Oh, Super Ed! I knew Mrs. T had fallen off but not that she had fallen on her arse in the mud, I suppose it must have been a bit funny, and thank goodness she didn't get hurt.

A three-cup coconut bra must be of a very unusual lady, don't you think? 😂😂

The swans look lovely and I guess one of them will be Cutie pie, I could never forget his name. Of the others, I remember strawberry pie and blueberry pie, are those the ones you saw?

A very unusual lady indeed Super Eli!
Yes she was fine and we could joke about it too:)
The swans really were gorgeous and when I do a post next week I will post what I think is one of my best ever swan pics and then show the pie names:)
Cutie pie though is not one of them, he is at the park still.

Morning morning Super Ed
I look forward to seeing that pic 🦢🦢😍
A couple of them must be the berries because I remember there was a blackberry pie too now that I think about it, but I don't remember the fifth name.
Now I'm going to make coffee to read the end of Billy Binman, last night I saw that you had posted it, but I was exhausted and didn't look at Hive. Let's see that ending hehe
Happy weekend, Super Ed :)

Good good good morning Super Eli, I am just watching the football, another early kick off, it is half time and scored just before half time to take a 1-0 lead. Pretty dull game, we need to up the intensity!
Hehe yes I posted it last night, and need to catch up with hive today, and make a saturday savers post and thread!
Yes there were berries amongst the pies!
Ah well I hope you enjoyed the ending, and did you see the wee Ageese lookalike we saw yesterday hehe!
Have a Super Saturdau Super Eli😁

Hello hello Super Ed! your dull game turned out into an intense one from what I read in your other comment with red cards in between, I hope you didn't lose.

I'm still in doubt about whether or not to make a post for Saturday's savers club today, what do you say? I saw that you have started a thread and I'm on my way there, hehe

With the picture of the cat at one point, I thought how did Super Ed manage to have that pic of Ageese, lol I have not taken that one 🤣🤣 And I thought you did some photoshop and then I saw the cat doesn't have the cute little white speck that Ageese has at the end of his tail. hehe

Happy happy Saturday Super Ed

Ah yes the wee markon Ageese's tail! It was funny as he was sitting there on Friday when we came back from town, and so I just had to add him to the story!
I post for savers and you should too ;)

It's a good thing you got to feed the animals at the lack, it seems like they were really in need of you, maybe that's why you didn't get to go to the aquarium with your friend.

I will partner, you too 😘❤️.

What an eventful birthday! I hope it was happy, nevertheless. I am sorry about the strike and the mud fall. At least though, as you didn't see the arse falling moment, Mrs T's dignity is intact!

Belaying happy birthday!

It was a perfect birthday Fiona, started off by winning a 20,000 LP delegation. The strike well it is one of things and the hike turned out way better as we saw three swan children that we had not seen since last year, so was quite chuffed that they were healthy and living in the area still. Yes apart from a muddy bum on the walk home she was fine, very happy as she found a couple of very old glass jars.

Coconut clangers could be useful around the home, bra is one perhaps wee bit uncomfortable, coffee cups, bird feeder, ladle would need a handle, plant feeder, OK recycling is a bug bear, fashionable to say the least.

I wished you somewhere along the web knowing you added a year, same day as my Mum.

Now I see you got out and into the wild side of life, obviously a good one, not in your birthday suit but in a birthday bra!

Actually when I was at the charity shops yesterday, in the one for the animals, I did see half a coconut filled with bird food, so am sure that is what they are. As you say, a wee bit uncomfortable 🤣

Ah yes that's right same day as you mum:)
Hehe I think the birthday bra was a bit safer that walking around in my birthday suit!
