Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
I hope your week has gone well. There has been glorious sunshine here and knowing how unpredicable our summers can be, we have been making the most of it. The fledgling starlings having stuffed themselves at the Birdseed Cafe and Spa, are now disappearing for most of the day, just popping in for a bath and a drink. With nearly 10 days without rain there is little standing water around and so our two baths have to be filled at least three times a day to keep up with demand. When I sit outside they ignore me and it is quite the sight watching their antics.
I have a very special lunch on Friday which I will tell you about next week… delighted to be meeting up in person with a talented children’s author and friend to many of us in the writing community.
As always my thanks to my friends who contribute to the blog…
