Oh, thanks for that dibnlib. Wish I could send them all a hug! The sun came out here eventually, although it's still only about 14 degrees. It's been rather quiet in our garden which usually means that Mr/Mrs Sparrowhawk is around! Usually I can see & hear lots of activity as they're all busily nesting at the moment. That reminds me that I don't think I posted a pic of a dear Robin who came to see if we had any crumbs when we were in a garden centre having an outdoor coffee, in Wales.
In reply to dibnlib:
dibnlib said:I see that on Sunday there is to be a grand finale at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. I do hope HM can attend.
Yes, I saw an item about that. It looks lots of fun, and I'm sure HM would enjoy it- at least she could be watching sitting down.
Pretty poppies which set themselves in odd places all over our garden.
It may be Friday the 13th but I’m not superstitious. So far it has been a good day, I had a long sleep overnight, pea & ham soup now in prep, some beautiful flowers & robin from LINDA. The sun is shining. OH had his flu jab yesterday, personally by our Doc. Another thing ticked off “my” list. Flu & covid jabs are free for elderlies.
Big sister phoned to say her visiting Dau tested positive for covid the day before departure, then s-i-l and next my b-i-l. Another Dau & a neighbour are delivering supplies to front verandah. Sis sounded quite “down”, trying to isolate 4 people, she is sleeping on lounge. I shall phone her later today for a progress report. Such a shame they have both been so careful for past 2+ years.
Next Door’s fence saga continues. There have been workmen past 2 days, yesterday there were voices and banging on fence nearest us. OH decided to ask workmen what is happening (it is our fence too) - they are straightening the fence!
Just a thought
Friday the 13th is still better than Monday the whatever.
Happy Friday the 13th! May all your irrational superstitions haunt you today.
If a black cat crosses your path on Friday the 13th . . . pet the cat.
