BRIAN KIDD: Weekly tips for gardeners and their problems solved

Have your say

Greetings Chipsters everywhere.

Every week I tell you all about my adventures, so it won’t be a surprise that this week I’ve been up to just as much as the last.

But as I was feeling super restless over the weekend, I wanted to do something that I knew would use up ALL my energy. I know what you’re thinking, that would take some doing. But an outside adventure was just what I needed.

I roped Brindley into joining me of course, and eventually he gave in. He does love an adventure too, but cats are a bit more elegant than dogs. Between the two of us I like to get my paws dirty just that little bit more.

Off we went into the woods, all geared up with everything we needed. Someone in Dunyelping had told us about a wildlife walk route in the forest so we decided to follow it and see what was there.

Well, we weren’t disappointed. There were birds, bees, insects, and even a rabbit or two. Plus, rocks to climb over, sticks to play with, and rivers to dip in (for me, cats hate water).

During a break we sat and munched our food while watching the little bunnies go about their daily business. It was lovely. Sometimes other animals are scared of me, but everyone knows I’m completely harmless!

As the day drew to an end we resorted to a slow walk home. We had definitely used up all our energy.

It’s so nice to get outside and play, I hope you will do the same.

This week, three of my Chipsters have won the latest prize in my brilliant competition.

The winners are:
