Good luck on your second season of home grown veg!
I do love the lighter nights. The veg was very hit or miss last year but it was fun to grow

I do hope my bulbs find their way up the right way 😂

We have sparrow hawks and buzzards here, we feed the small birds on our garden feeders on the patio and sometimes a flash of a large, brown bird (either the sparrow hawk or the buzzard) swoops down and flies off with a tiny blue tit or similar. Itís quite cruel but also majestic to see them.

I love the bird feeder 💞

Am now worried the bird feeding will attract rats... might have to take it down! The blue tits dont want it anyway, we noticed yesterday they only like the raspberry suet block.

Thatís a shame, but I can see the problem and you definitely donít want rats 😱

I try to fill our bird feeders early in the day so theyíve eaten it all before it gets dark so it doesnít attract rats.

DD is making rocky road this afternoon, Iím so pleased sheís home from uni as Iím rubbish at baking 😂 (although Iím not really as she should be in uni enjoying herself)

Weíve also discovered a pub around 8 miles away on Just Eat who say they deliver up our area (many donít as weíre quite rural) so Iím hoping to get a pub meal delivered tomorrow evening as a change.

The weather may be awful but thereís always food to cheer me up 😀 Although Iím sure I will be complaining that my clothes donít fit when I finally get out of elastic waistbands again 🤣

Has anyone else got any tasty foodie treats planned this weekend?

I know, I feel bad for saying that but I really do find my little food treats brighten me up at the moment and dieting is just impossible

I really am unsure what to order. I think DH is considering their ultimate burger or a steak, Georgia is thinking of ordering ribs or chicken burger but Iím always indecisive so it will be a last minute decision for me. I will post photos if they can deliver here.

Me too - he only weighs 7lbs more than when we married in 1977 and he was underweight then!
