Christmas Diary: 31st December

New Year’s Eve!

Seven swans today. Don’t want to think about how he came by them. Can’t be legal.

In pond temporarily. Definitely not ideal. Geese still sitting on eggs so mess minimal. But swans! Yuk. And terrorising other birds.
No time to lose. Urgent lateral thinking required.

Went to ‘Mediaeval Banquet’ two years ago. Phoned to ask if they’d be interested in seven fine swans. Jumped at the chance – and offered very good price. Apparently having swans waddling around grounds adds to ‘Tudor’ atmosphere. I’ll be in pocket by few hundred quid.

Might be a positive in all these fowl gifts!
