IÆm bummed cos baddie workmen have my frogging route up, dunno what theyÆre doing but theyÆve dug a hole running about 15 metres along the road and toadsÆll fall down. IÆm hoping theyÆll finish and sod off soon and wonÆt be here a while and dig the whole stretch of road up when it gets to be frogging time.  (Ain't frogging time just yet.)  Has anyone experienced roadworks before? Frogs and toads are dim. They wonÆt know no better than to jump down. IÆm worried about them. IÆll probably have to do a nutter act of jumping the barrier and getting down the hole and fishing around in muddy water looking for them, though someone told me I could get arrested for that, and I donÆt wanna fall and hurt myself or get really mucked up and I get enough stick as it is without acting more like a loon. ItÆs a bummer itÆs there. Snot fair. Have you lot seen frogs and toads trapped down roadworks before?  I donÆt want them to be tarmacced over. I donÆt like holes in the ground or drains. Got my hand stuck down one drain getting a toad out once. It was worth it though, I couldnÆt just leave it there.


I wanted presents from lots of you. Snot fair that Ben Rigsby was the only one to send me Xmas & birthday presents.

Hey itÆs a good job I left getting the trapped toad out ætil the end of the frogging night, IÆd of been distraught if IÆd of been trapped and frogs and toads were getting squashed on the road whilst I was pinned to the floor.
