Eccentric Monday

I have a soft spot for chickens. I think they're adorable...

World Book Day

Today marks the anniversary of Shakespeare birth (and death) and, appropriately, it's also World Book Day. We always recommend books to each other here, it's always a book day! In the spirit of the occasion, I'd like to recommend "The Grass is Singing" by Doris Lessing. Happy reading!

Let's party some more!

We have a double party today. Granny J invited Amy to share her birthday, so today we have a lovely assortment of treats. I've been collecting pictures that make me think of my friends here and will post them on their birthdays. It worked well yesterday, and it makes a change from far too much cake! Don't panic! There will be cake, including a deliciously ironic chocolate one... The pictures are not divided between GJ and Amy, they're jumbled up, it will be a guessing game, although some of the items apply to both.

Happy birthday, Amy and GJ! Have a fabulous day!
