  4. Strange isn't it, to be home when you aren't used to being there.

    Right now, my ward is Monday to Friday. Having the weekend off has been a shock to my system! I can sleep and get up with regular people!

    Enjoy your freedom

  7. Forgot to say on the last post - I do hope you have a flowery pinny like the one hanging on the hook in the picture!
    And thank you for following my new blog - had 400 on the old one, struggling to get to 200 here

    Good luck with your garden in the competition, John.

    1. I thought about this and wondered if you looked at a picture of a goldfish when you made it. I even googled a gold fish to be sure. It could be an exotic bird!

  12. I once had an ornately carved carrot centrepiece in the shape of a bird in a Chinese restaurant. I asked the waiter what it was, and he said, "It's a carrot."
