Something a bit different this week. Louise Thomas features regularly on Neighbourly but it appears she is not the only bird lover in the family.
"This beautiful drawing was a present from my lovely daughter, Caitlin, for my birthday. It's a portrait of a chap who frequents a large tree at the back of our neighbour's section - it borders our section at the back so he is often peering into our yard - this is the view we normally have of him. I've always valued the handcrafted gifts my children give me - looking at them in chronological order is like viewing the ascent of man. This one's going straight to the trophy room. Kererū/wood pigeon (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae)."

As I no longer have a landline, I have no further use for for this phone system, which is perfect for persons who are hard of hearing or visually impaired. It has an xtra loud volume, which can be boosted further, a red flashing light when there is a call or voicemail and large buttons.
The digital answering system has a button you can push to play the messages back more slowly.
It comes with an extra cordless handset.
Some time ago I bought a second accessory cordless handset which has a contact that needs seeing to ( I already bought a new battery) so I can offer that free of charge to go with the system. Phone system comes with owner’s manuals.

When the time comes you will wish you knew this one! 👍

The unexpected happens, make sure you are prepared! 👨‍🔧 AND make sure the valve actually turns the flow off! (sometimes they don't)!

Where to look for your council water toby:
- Normally on the boundary of your property
- Often aligning with one side of your property
- Sometimes buried (carefully use a probe to check)

Where to look for your house toby
- Often close to your hose tap
- Often buried 🤔
