Today is my nephew’s 53rd birthday. He is 17 months younger than his brother who at 54 was the first arrival to make me an Auntie in 1967. Although I haven’t seen him for over 25 years now, I hope he is keeping well and having a lovely day.
The day has started hot and breezy. The washing is out, and we nipped up the road to the pet shop to buy a bag of bird seed. The last lot we bought was in Skegness and on special offer at £9, so I wasn’t too surprised to see they wanted £12 here. This has turned out to be a bargain as the bag we bought last time only weighed 12.75kg, and the one today is 20kg.
From there we went to the garden centre as I’m after a bird bath. My family bought me one for my 50th birthday but when we sold the cottage and bought the boat, it got sent to charity with the bulk of our possessions.
I was somewhat dismayed to see bird seed at £10, then checked the weight and that was 12.75 kg so felt quite happy but could not believe they wanted £35 for the same weight in sunflower hearts!
Bird baths started at £30 which was way over my budget of a tenner, so we just came away with a small bag of compost for Hubby and dropped into the supermarket on the way home for fruit and poppadoms to go with our curry today.
Apart from staff and us, no-one was wearing a mask. Ho hum. Personal choice, and ours is to still wear them.
Going to have a lazy day today, basically because it’s too damn hot to do very much! We certainly can’t work in the garden so will cut the grass this evening when it’s cooler. Town is already packed so walks are also out, but having one around 9pm is very pleasant!
