In other news:
- I bought a couple of board games from a charity shop last Thursday and Greg and I played Word Yahtzee together on Sunday evening. It's fun, I don't know why we haven't played games together before.
- I'm restocking my supplies of baby cardigans to give as gifts; I finished a pink one at the weekend and started a blue stripy one yesterday evening, while watching the beginning of series 2 of Call the Midwife.
- Yesterday morning I saw I fieldfare cowering under a shrub at the bottom of the garden, which was lovely. I don't think we've ever had them in the garden before. There are lots of normal birds, though: blue tits and great tits, blackbirds and starlings, thrushes and sparrows and dunnocks.
- I bought a lovely random cookery book from the Leprosy Mission for £1 when I was buying cheap Christmas cards to save for next year, and it arrived last weekend. It's basically a printing of all the recipes someone collected over her lifetime, and most of them are named after the friends who gave the recipes to her. I'm really looking forward to trying some of them out, probably starting with the prune cake if I can borrow a ring-shaped tin from my Mum.
