Morning and welcome to Sunday morning
Morning and welcome to what really SHOULD be a nice lazy Sunday morning!
I say SHOULD be on the grounds that we had a bit of a late night and a few bevies with pals last night and expected a nice slow start this morning . . . WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Flipping Heck . . 06:15 I was wakened to the sound of raucous chirping! And I don't just mean one of two birds having a bit of an argy bargy as I got out of bed to have a look and "even" went downstairs and out in to the back garden to see what the heck it was. It was about 70 (I kid you not on the numbers, my roof was black with the little perishers) crows/rooks/jackdaws - can't tell the difference even when wide awake, well certainly not from that distance! It was like a scene from "The Birds". They flew off and I returned to my bed . . . . less than five minutes later a blooming flock of geese did a bit of a flypast!! WHAT! Not like we live next to the wildfowl and wetlands trust at Slimbridge or anything so why our roof!
Our friends, Liz and Graeme, came round to dinner last evening and my hubby served us us a DELICIOUS roast gammon joint with all the trimmings and followed it with a mixed berry crumble - yummmmmmmmy! The purpose of the evening was to book a flight for Liz to join us out in Florida at our next trip, which we achieved before dinner - all very civilised and now we are all looking forward to it. Of course, I am particularly looking forward to this trip as I received an e-mail this very morning to tell me that the Scrap Book and Stamping expo (normally in May) is going to occur very shortly after our arrival - YEEEEEE HAAAA indeed! Poor Liz will just have to accompany me! Steve will, of course, be doing something else that morning! - from watching his hair grow to visiting the Home Depot (like B&Q)!!!
Anyway, after my VERY disturbed night I get up to check out the Sunday themed challenge over on CMLI and it's BOOKS - so my first entry (which is topical this morning) is "To Kill a Mocking Bird"!!!! Actually, I made this last night as an "Off the Edge" entry over on Simply Less Is More but it somehow seemed so appropriate!, I just couldn't resist it!
Hope you like it and I do hope that my "flock" didn't stop by your place last night too!!
