Ah, my dear, dear, loyal friends. How lovely to see you all again. I must say I have had a nice peaceful time at the seaside and I am now back at Clover Cottage. You may think I am looking a little bit untidy, but you see, I am feeling so relaxed that I just feel like wearing my casual country clothes. I am quite content to just sit here surrounded by daisies. I must apologize for my strange, bent ear. You see it was very windy yesterday and my ear was blown right down and so far it has not come up again. I will try not to worry about it. Pearl says that I still look very handsome even with odd ears. She tells me that even if I had no ears at all then it would not matter as it is my kind soul that matters most. Pearl always says such wise things and I always listen to her because I can learn so many wonderful things from her. Well, let me tell you what happened when I arrived back at Clover Cottage. First of all the naughty slugs had eaten all of my best lettuce in my vegetable garden so I will have to plant some more seeds. The good news is that I have noticed a new birds nest in my oak tree. Oh how exciting ! I cannot wait to see if there are any baby birds in there. I will listen very carefully early tomorrow morning in the stillness, with my ears wide open ( that is if I can get my bent ear wide open!) If I am very lucky I will be able to hear the tiny chirps of baby birds as they wait for their mother to bring their breakfast to them. I will let you know what happens in my next story.
Love from Sherbetx
