    A robin chirping away on the roof of next door's house woke me this morning....:)

    We have a Robin that our kids are currently stalking. We got a bird feeder and bath in home store and more and the poor kids get worried when they haven't seen the Robin pop back for his dinner. ( nana may have told them that the Robin carries news back to santa :p )

    It's lovely to see robins in the garden. All we are missing is some snow and it be a picture perfect Christmas card :)

    Ah that's fantastic Glitzgirl. Fostering is such a wonderful thing to do. Whoever the lucky child is will be going into such a loving joyful home!

    My reason to be cheerful is this beautiful weather. I love this time of year.

    It was fab. Got the grass cut and hung out a wash on the line for the first time this year. It really is the little things!
