Well, I was minding my own business after a lesuirly walk back from dropping the kids off at school, when the plovers that live at the end of the road attacked me. I heard this screeching, then it was swooping down, dive bombing me, screeching again as it got closer and closer to my head. Luckily it veered away at the last second, leaving me a nervous wreck, but before I had chance to recover another one was coming. What a sight I must have looked trying to kung fu chop them as the darted near my head, ducking and diving, bobbing and weaving. God know what the neighbour thought who was just coming out of her house in the middle of me telling them to f off! The next time I go out for a stroll I think I'm going to have to think stratigically and take something to launch them out of the way if they try to attack again. They never had anything like this in England. Nobody warned me. I'd heard of the dangerous snakes, spiders and the like, but evil swooping birds? Not a word. Luckily I've lived to tell the tale.:wink: Chris x
By a bloody magpie!!!!! I was riding my bike to pick up my son from kinder, and was holding his scooter across my handle bars, when I heard this noise above me and something hit my helmet, I looked up to see a magpie coming in for another go, just as that happened the scooter got caught in my front wheel throwing me over the handle bars and onto the road, as I lay on the road looking up the bloody thing flew away, I'm sure it would of been smiling (if it could!!!!) Now I sit hear with my leg puffed up, throbing and bleeding, a sore rist, elbow and feeling sorry for myself :cry::cry::cry: Then to top it off Joey was riding his scooter home and his front wheel went onto the grass sending him flying...... now he has a huge graze on his forehead..... What a day...... Anyone else been attacked by an animal?
Todays announcement that another 8 prisons are to be put up for privatisation has come as a sickening blow to the prison service and its members. HM Prisons, Lindholme, Moorlands, Hatfield, Onley, Coldingley, Durham and Acklington, could be privatised very soon, with the loss of hundreds of prison officers jobs and those that are left, will have to accept a £6 to £8 thousand pound reduction in their wages and loss of most of their pension rights and it is a kick in the teeth for these hard pressed professionals who deal with the most difficult, dangerous and disturbed people in the country. We are not the only professionals who are being savaged, the police, nurses, teachers, bank, government and council workers, plus others, too many to mention are being attacked and i am just at a loss of trying to understand what the government is thinking and how will all this help the country to come out of this 3 year recession we have been in? :mad::no:
