Pecking the hand that feeds you!!


You may recall just prior to Christmas me urging you to feed the birds during the cold spell we were experiencing. I know lots of you did and I'm sure they were most grateful for the crumbs etc. that we put out. When the weather improved I stopped doing it as I think the birds shouldn't become too reliant on us if other sources of food are available. Obviously this opinion was not shared by one particular bird who, on not receiving any sustenance outside, decided to come in for some!!!! Let me explain…

Last Saturday was my daughter Sophie's birthday so we had all been quite late getting to bed. Her Dad had had a gig in Manchester so was even later getting to bed – about 6.30 am I think, so I was quite suprised to be woken by our son Daniel knocking on the bedroom door and telling me there was a bird in the lounge!! Did I say quite suprised – ok, that is an understatement!! 

Barely awake, I followed him downstairs…

… to have a look at the intruder who he had described as a big black bird! He was not exaggerating! It was either a small crow or a large raven, either way it was very BIG and flying around frantically trying to get out poor thing. What to do??? I've always had a bit of a phobia about things like this since watching the Alfred Hitchcock movie!!!

Then my partner Chris suggested we ring the landlord. What a brilliant idea… his house, his chimney, his bird! He only lives round the corner, and when I told him what had happened he came straight round and dealt with it! Apparently it had happened before – the bird had simply fallen down the chimney!

As you can imagine there was a bit of 'mess' to clear up but at least it got out unharmed, and I've got the message and started putting crumbs out again!

It reminded me of a time years ago when Chris and I lived in a top floor flat and a bat flew in through the window! We didn't know how we were going to get it out as it was flapping around in a panic. We left it over night and in the morning it had settled into the folds of the curtains, so I carefully unhooked the curtain and threw the whole thing out of the window! I wonder if you've ever entertained any uninvited 'guests' in your home???? 

It's been a funny week at QVC with Anthony Heywood leaving us for his Caribbean adventure…  we're all going to miss him of course. You know I don't think Anthony ever called me Julia or Jools, it was always JR!! I'm sure we'll keep in touch. It's his leaving do tonight, so I will pop in for a couple of hours before coming into work for the launch of the Tiana B TSV at midnight, which you may just want to stay up for!

Much love,
Julia x

    Hi Juiia
    At the miment we have a bird in our loft, a few days ago I heard noises in the loft from the bedaroom and bathroom, every time I called my husband they stopped! he looked at me as if I was mad and hearing things,yesterday after much nagging he found a slate loose above our bedroom (we live in a bungalow) he replaced it and cemented up the gap. Today the noise started again in the bedroom and he heard it, tomorrow he is going up in the loft to try and intice it out as I dont like birds flapping around me I will stay shut up in the lounge.Hopefully he will be able to get it to go out the kitchen door, will let you know how we get on,by the way he feeds the birds every day,and ducks that visit our garden from one of the nearby resovoirs we are surrounded by them as we live near the airport speak soon XXXXX

    Hi Julia
    What a story, we had something like that happen to us here in Mallorca, we did not use the fire place for the first 3 years here, then started to use it one winter and by the start of the spring we put the TV on and closed all the door for the night and just as we watched tv this bat started to fly around the sitting room I screamed and locked myself up in the bed room, my poor husband opened all the door trying to get him out, and in the end he manage to get him out, now i never stay in this room alone.
    Also you may remember the cat that kept coming to visit us and we put food out for her, she died a few month ago, but as I did not see her I kept putting the food out,but another cat was eating it, and one day I was talking to a friend in the garden when I heard a bang, went in and found the other cat in my kitchen who took the fish I was about to cook for dinner and ran out with it, I never put food out again.
    Can”t wait for TSV, I”ll be watching tonigh.
    Much love.

    Hi Julia
    Oh my god I would have freaked out if a bird had come in my house.I don’t mind the wee ones but not anything bigger.As you say it was Alfred Hitchcock to blame!I remember a few years ago being in the Hitchcock “Birds” theatre in Universal in Orlando and at one point its like a HUGE BIRD comes out from the screen and lands on your shoulder.To say I was scared was an understatement,but in a strange way it was very funny as everyone thought the same and we were all screaming.Regarding Anthony leaving this is very sad.How popular was he? I do hope the powers that be leave the door open for him so that some day he will come back.I don’t think he will need a cv for any future jobs—He can just print off all the lovely comments he has been given.Take Care Julia x

    Hi Julia. I was on a night out last night and caught your show when I came in. Still looking great I have to say JR!
    I would have been panicking too if a bird was in my kitchen. We get a lot of birds in our back garden but never have we had any in the kitchen! We have a table outside where all the birds sit and my Mum puts food on it. Maybe if we got rid of that then they would come in!
    Off to Ibrox today against Hamilton. We are 5 points behind at the moment but have 3 games in ahnd on Celtic so its not looking too bad. Winning the games is another story. Sometimes I’d rather have points on the board. I notice Palace are on TV again tonight. Might get back to see some of the game. I can see it being a tough one unfortunately. You won’t be going are you? At least if it’s on TV you can watch it.
    Take care xx

    This is not related to your recent blog but just wanted to say that you have inspired me to try Diet Chef and i am so pleased I took the plunge. I got the 20 day TSV and i have loved it – completed 5 days already and lost 4lbs and 4 inches!
    I was so surprised at the taste of the food – and it is so easy to do. thanks for sharing about it on your blog.
    I also liked how you shared about how you then incorporated back to ‘normal’eating as we all have to do this at some stage.
    thanks again

    Have been watching you this morning (Tiana B). Your bird situation must have been a shock for your son to wake up to, glad it go resolved.
    What I wanted to say was, you look great, with all the weight lost. Please let me know your secrets. I’ve just tuned 57 and always been 8-9st now 10st ahhh!!! Husband hates it, but I have no motivation. Can you help?

    hello julia i found your blog amusing, we spend £35 every month on sacks of bird seed and bird nuts. Our hobby is photographing birds and wildlife.We have a large garden and often sit in the conservatory with the camera and photograph whatever turns up. The squirells are the funniest, if there isn’t any nuts out they come right up to our door and stand on their hind legs like meercats and stare at us until we relent and fill up the tables, if we dont do it straight away they get peevish and dig up our lawn so we have to be sure to keep them well fed. A belated happy new year to everyone Julia will speak again soon love Gill from sheffield.

    Hello Julia, being cat owners we’ve always had “visitors”; bats, frogs and mice have regularly appeared over the years, given to us as presents. Our two moggies are now too old to bother with hunting. Much to the relief to our older Daughter who once found a field mouse in one of her boots. Ten years later she still checks her footwear before putting it on. I suppose that is so much better than having to look for scorpions or other lovely creatures in more exotic locations. I feel for the people in Australia who, along with all the flood devastation, will have to cope with all the crocodles and snakes that have been brought into the towns by all the water. Jo in Stourbridge.

    Hi Julia
    We’ve had the odd bird in the house, the last being a sparrow in the loft. Chris didn’t know what to do about it and I remembered when I was little, our old house had open fires in the bedrooms (before central heating!) and a bird came down the chimney one day and Dad shut the door, opened the window and pulled the curtains to, leaving a small gap. After a while the bird flew out… Dad said it would fly towards the light and it did!
    Down to our sparrow, Chris left the hatch open, closed all the doors and curtains, leaving a gap in one with the window open and sure enough after some fluttering he flew out… job done! Good old Dad, he may not be here anymore, but his tips live on!
    Can I just ask having watched the Tiana B repeat… are the boots you are wearing Markon? If they are, I have the exact same boots and wore them to my nephew’s wedding a couple of years ago. I love the style and shape of them and very often wish I’d bought 2 pairs at the time. I’m such a ditherer and can never make my mind up until its too late!!

    Hello Julia this is becoming a habit now, me commenting on your blog.But at times you certainly do jog my memory with your snippets of family life.Something similar to the above happend to us whilst we were renting a bungalow during the final stages of a self build.I was busying myself one morning and as I walked in to the sitting room I heard a flapping and scraping noise in the chimney.O no a bird trapped in the chimney!my dear now departed Dad who was living with us at the time said that the poor thing couldn’t escape as the woodburner had a plate which was stuck two thirds of the way across and we may have to leave it there.One consolation was that being a new property it was so well insulated and warm we hadn’t used the wood burner.Anyway to cut a long story short.There was no way was going to live there with a creature slowing dying.So ‘phoned husband who was working not too far away, and he brought home the equipment to free it.He’s good like that! 🙂 But would you believe it happened again? So now wherever we live or even build, on goes a special thingy on the chimey!Well that’s my small account of a similar happening, and I’d better get back now to preparing the veg for lunch and say bye for now and looking forward to reading the other comments! Take care Julia.With love.LyndaR.xx p.s. Do escuse any mistakes.Typed on smart ‘phone.Christmas prez.Daren’t scroll in case I wipe it all off!But I’m getting better 🙂 xx

    Hi Julia – I live very close to the sea and for the past 4 months I have had a seagull who visits about four times a day! I can’t believe how tame it is and as soon as I drive home it appears from nowhere! Like you, I have stopped feeding it and the other smaller birds, as I feel they could become too dependent and really should fend for themselves! I don’t think I could cope if it came into the house though – poor you!
    You have really done SO well on your diet, Julia, and look fab BUT please don’t lose any more weight, you have a lovely figure, and I think you should stay as you are now!

    Not a bird of any sort but this may give you a little chuckle
    A few years ago we had a family break in Centre Parcs and at the time my twin niece & nephew were around the terrible 2 age. Just as we had finally got sorted my lovley niece semed to have disappeared -funny -where could she have gone , um ,up the chimney , when we finally pulled her out by her little legs , although we were a little cross , we tried for days to get her completley soot free and it was very funny ……ahhhh

    Hi Pauline
    I hope your husband managed to get the bird out?? We had something similar at our old house with noises in the loft – not sure if it was a squirrel or a mouse or a bird but it stopped in the end and we didn’t find any ‘remains’ when we moved out, so I guess it must have had a way to get in and out!

    I know exactly what you mean – I had managed to gradually put on nearly 2 stone and I just got to the point where I had to lose it for myself. Chris actually doesn’t mind me ‘curvier’ but I just felt uncomfortable in my clothes.
    Give the Diet Chef a go for a month or two and then gradually incorporate ‘normal’ food but smaller portions. Also exercise really helps to accelerate any weightloss.
    Good luck with it and keep me posted

    I think we all feel for anyone whose home gets devastated by flooding. I always think of the horrible smell – can’t say I had given much thought to crocs and snakes wandering around the towns – much worse than having a big black bird in your lounge!!!!
    Poppy is not much for bringing in the wildlife – thankfully – due in part to her not going out much, particularly in the Winter as in human years she is now in her 80’S.

    Good spot – yes they are my Markon boots. They are my favourite ever boots, perfect heel height, great toe shape, wide enough on the calves. Like you, I wish I had ordered more than one pair – Chris always tells me to do that, particularly with shoes as I am such a nightmare finding shoes and boots that I like!
    Glad your Dad’s good advice delivered results – I’ll remember that if it happens again, although the landlord is going to have someone put a guard thingie on the top so hopefully we won’t get a repeat performance!

    You are very brave to type on your phone – I don’t even know how to correct text messages not to mention being unable to do capital letters ( unless at the beginning of a sentence ) or find the apostrophe.

    Hi Julia, I used to live in a top floor flat and one summer a piegon flew though the lounge window, well my mum nearly had a heart attack, she thinks birds of any sort in the house are bad luck, so I had to run down 8 sets of stairs to call for a neighbour who had a budgie to come and get it out. Christine managed this, eventually using one of my mums cushions!!
    Also not too many years ago my eldest was getting ready for nursery and I sent him upstairs to brush his teeth, he came back straiht down bless and said ‘Mum theres a bird in the bathroom, honest and Im not lying’ so of to look as you do and sure enough a large blackbird had flown through the airvent for the shower!! Luckly his dad had been working late and was still in bed.I screamed and ran into the bedroom to tell him as I didnt know what to do and I didnt want poo everywhere. Andy managed to get rid by throughing one of the towels over it and then empted it out of the bathroom window. What made me laugh though is that Ben didnt shut the door when he came to tell me, thank goodness it didnt escape or poo anywhere else!!

    Hi Julia yes I did catch the game and yes Palace were poor but Swansea have been flying high so not a great shock. Hopefulyy Palace will do better next time. Who’s next up? Rangers won last night again. We are 2 points behind and have 2 games in hand but we also look like losing our top scorer in January – Palace will know all about that. Hopefully we can fend off any other suitors as the squad is far too thin already. We could actually do with bringing a couple in but I suppose every club is looking to do the same.
    Halfway through the week – time flies when you are enjoying yourself. Maybe its all the game si have been at lately. I have been going to a lot of the away games too this season.

    Dear Julia, Having just read your blog I have to say how important it is to carry on feeding the birds throughout the winter, not just when there is snow on the ground. It is also important to make sure the is also water for them to drink and bathe in. The first job of the day for me is to feed “my” birds. They are fascinating to watch and to see how many varieties come to the garden. So you should carry on putting food out for them! Regards.

    Hi Tracy
    I’m glad to hear that I am not the only one this has happened to …… you know I seem to recall hearing that having a bird in the house is bad luck. I was more concerned about it being a ‘black’ bird and was wondering if that was a bad omen, but I mentioned it when Marjolein Brugman was over and she said the Native American Indians consider Ravens and the like fortuitous …. I think I’ll choose to believe that!
    I know what you mean about the poo! Fortunately Chris was on hand to deal with that!!

    Thanks for the lovely compliments. 2 stone is definitely achievable and my advice is to do it slowly then it is more likely to stay off.
    Pilates has really helped keep my arms toned – hug a tree, bicep curls, overhead presses and the hundred etc. Also walking on the treadmill wearing wrist weights and swimming ( particularly backstroke ). I would recommend kicking off with Diet Chef even if you only do it for a month – it’s great for portion control.

    Iknow what you mean about not just feeding the birds in the snow but I have always been told that as long as the ground is not frozen they can fend for themselves, and there have been plenty of berries around this year – obviously mother nature providing for her offspring.My Mum has a bird bath and always makes sure the birds have water, even if she has to go and break the ice for them!!

    Hi Jess
    The best way to lose inches is to use the rebounder for twenty minutes of aerobic exercise.
    To wittle the waist the mermaid overhead press is good, and also the side sit twists. Basically anything stretching sideways or incorporating a twist will work on the obliques which helps the waist. You could also pick up some ideas from Marjoleins website.
    Hope I’ve helped

    Dear Julia
    I’ve being meaning to send a message as I too decided to feed the birds as the little ones as the pigeons around here are still quite plump. I took my self off to the Garden Centre and bought a little bird house and seeds. Well pleased with myself I hung it up and watch while the birds curously circled the little house. I was suprised to see that all the seeds disappeared in the first couple of days and kept topping up the bird house. The weekend came so I took the opportunity to watch whilst the birds fed. To my amazement the pigeons had worked out how to get the seeds out of the bird house so the seeds fell to the ground and in relay they guarded the seeds on the ground and chased off all other birds, what greedy bully boys!!!!
    Anyway I am still putting seeds out for them as we all need a little help sometimes! Wanted to say you are a great inspiration and I too lost 2st last year through changing my diet and just eating less!! There is a top you always wear which is silky with butterflies on the front and a block black back. I noticed you had a purle one on recently. Its driving me mad cos I want one. Does QVC sell them and they just keep seeling out and its my bad luck or did you buy them elsewhere?
    Take care

    Hello Jenny
    Although the pigeons were being greedy they were pretty clever to work out how to do it don’t you think??
    Well done on your weight loss too – it’s nice to get compliments but I must say I feel so much better now.
    The dress is from Ted Baker – I had the orangey one first, which I still wear and you’re right the new one is purple. I only got it in October so they may still have them?
    Hope you get one

    Hi Julia
    Still looking great – love your hair straight too.
    But we are all still moortified at those shoes – why do you still wear them when everyone is talking about them – take the plunge and get rid.
