Horrors! Stuck in a shopping centre1 At least you can hide in your bus or have you retreated to somewhere warmer? I hate those places as they are usually very claustrophobic and in large crowds all I see are people's rib cages! I have been so lucky here, no flooding, no really strong winds and a lot less rain than other places.
My only real problem is keeping the cat who broke her femur relatively confined - she's desperate to go outside. Last night she hid behind the curtains in the kitchen so when I unlocked the cat flap to let one of the other cats in, she took her opportunity as soon as my back was turned. So stealthily that I only just heard the flap close behind her! Fortunately that flap leads into the small utility room so I was able to grab her before she went through the next flap to the great outdoors!
When one of my former cats broke his pelvis (and again, after he had his colon & bowel removed), I just kept him in a very large dog crate. He didn't like it, but once recovered, he went back to going in and out as he wanted.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!

She still sleeps in the crate, much to her annoyance and is confined to one room where there's not much temptation to jump up. The fracture is healing well but the latest X-ray didn't show as much new bone growth as the vet thought necessary to let her outside. The problem is the oldest rescue cat who doesn't know how/won't use the cat flap so there are two ways in and out of the house at opposite ends but everything comes to a central hallway. At the moment the other three are asleep so all exits are shut off. She's lying next to my computer on one of the many beds around the house.

In the nick of time my pheasants arrived yesterday, so with a bottle of The Dead Arm I’m sure Christmas will be just fine.
And Christmas Greetings to all you fine poultry aficionados. Eggs are beginning to appear, cockerels are finding their voices and the weather is still and mild.
Alls well with the world.

Merry Christmas one and all. We were very kindly invited to a family Portugeuse Xmas Eve celebration meal yesterday, including going out to see the baby Jesus warmed on giant fires outside churches and a very late night, and this afternoon we are going out to a British/German Christmas lunch which is going to involve duck and a Xmas pud. I hope everybody has a lovely time whatever they are doing.
