Today I count myself a very lucky duck................I saw five Magpies.
It is the strangest thing but I can't stop myself counting Magpies. People look at me strangely especially if I only see one. One is not good, one means sorrow and most of the time you see Magpies they appear to be on their own. You have to counteract the sorrow by criss-crossing the bird with your fingers and then saying, "Hello Mr Magpie, How's your wife and children?".
Please don't tell me I am the only one doing this??? I am forever crossing out Magpies and asking them about their family!!!
But today was a good day, today I saw five. Five means silver, not as good as gold but I am still pretty happy - it must be a good thing.
I saw these Magpie prints on Etsy, (see, I am not the only one!!) by the very talented Tori Elliott I think I might have to put them on my Christmas list.
