My Mum is mainly just dead into wildlife (mostly birds), she made my Dad build a house for two hedgehogs that live in the garden and she has a CCTV camera type thing out there to watch them. Can’t move for bird feeders, bird houses, bird baths etc and she buys bird food on an industrial scale. One of the two sheds in the garden is dedicated purely to bird food (she makes muesli for the hedgehogs).
When not doing bird related stuff she loves baking really good cakes for people, this one for my niece was fun:
She works for an art magazine and has to deal with loads of mad old people who have conspiracy theories about the watercolour artists that get featured in their mag and who wins the competitions etc, they ring up to whinge to her and it’s dead funny.
She’s really short (it’s where I get it from) and kind and gentle and lovely but with an enormous amount of inner-strength and patience as well. She’s the fucking best.
