Mr Birdwatcher is unwell

Cruelly struck down with Man Flu, I have had to take to my bed. What a pathetic sight I must make as I lie beneath the covers bravely listening to radio 4 and taking occasional sips of the healing drinks that Mrs BW brings to me. The fledglings have been quiet, bless them ,only Moonshine seems oblivious to my plight. I can hear him now going round on his wheel. It always seems to be much louder when you have to lie there listening to it. I think I ought to have a bell installed so that if I want something I can jangle it to attract Mrs BW’s attention. It is easy to be forgotten as you lie here hour after hour. Um not sure that she would agree though……………

  1. Birdman: I do hope you feel better and than Mrs. Birdwatcher is attentive in a non-homicidal way. Hope you’re feeling better by the time you read this.

  2. Reg – Your’re right about Man flu. I don’t think people fully understand how draining it is. Fiwa – The bell thing never got off the ground. Better already thanks.Foil Woman – Mrs BW is the best! She doesn’t do homicidal just an extreme form of disapproval, which though unpleasant at the time at least gives you an opportunity for a second chance.

  3. A broom is a good one to have when you’re in bed with man-flu. You can turn it upside down and bang hard on the bedroom floor to attract the attention of the carers in the kitchen below.Note: doesn’t work so well if you live in a bungalow.
