For the avoidance of doubt, this post is not part of my series filling in for Gill Heavens, resident of an abandoned badger sett and consumer of copious quantities of cheese and onion crisps (and gin). It’s just my chest feels a bit weighed down at the moment.

The oozlum bird, also spelled ouzelum, is a legendary creature found in Australian and British folk tales and legends. Some versions have it that, when startled, the bird will take off and fly around in ever-decreasing circles until it manages to fly up its own backside, disappearing completely.
I leave it to you to join the dots and understand my hope for what may be.
