    I have been mostly glaring at the lawn hoping it would grow slower, and throwing out mealworms for the birdies. Blackbirds have fledged and are concealed around the garden under various shrubs. Maybe it'll be safe to go out again by tomorrow.

    Once a lawn starts growing ...
    There is no stopping it !

    There was definitely the sound of some lawn mowers going near ours over the Easter Weekend ...

    All is quiet today as the workers go back to work.

    Next Bank Holiday will not be long though.

    All the best Jan

    Well the Bank Holiday has started very quietly and definitely has a relaxing feel.

    A wonderful start to the day with our favourite (lower carb choice) Cumberland Sausages with tomatoes, mushrooms and poached egg, we also had a small slice of black pudding each Smile 3g carb per slice.

    I went 'decadent' and enjoyed two cups of tea Exclamation lol!

    A little bit of Grand Prix watching as they battled it out for the qualifying rounds ...

    And now the afternoon beckons, maybe I'll read a while.

    Whatever your Bank Holiday plans ... have a good one.

    All the best Jan

    Andy ... Merlin is a sweetie, how can anyone resist those lovely eyes and cute nose Smile

    I had to go out earlier and ended up getting quite wet from a heavy downpour - I thought to myself well it is April and April is known for showers ... then I thought wait a minute it's May. This year is going too quickly. Exclamation

    Glad you got a game of golf in ...
    Hope your week goes well

    I thought with the late August Bank Holiday approaching I'd resurrect this thread ...

    Then I saw the lovely pictures of Merlin, if you're looking in Andy, how is your new puppy doing?

    We haven't made any plans for the Bank Holiday weekend, although family members have already booked the Friday before off in order to make it a four day weekend ...

    We'll probably not go far, the traffic is usually abysmal.

    All the best Jan

    I'm the same Jan never venture out of the local area on bank holidays due to the traffic

    Fish Van Man is off on his hols already. This means I'll have to make one of my semi-annual visits to the smokery in Orford. I'll make it before the actual Bank Holiday just to be on the safe side.

    Yes like you two I tend to sneak off through some back lanes where the holiday hordes don't usually go and walk somewhere relatively obscure.
