Breakfast, Jays and Nothing

11 Mar

We love this special breakfast!

Eggy bread with fruit, maple syrup and creme fraiche

A pair of Jays visited us briefly this morning and I managed to just catch one through the window. What beautiful birds they are!

One of the pair

One of our Cornish pre-schools sent this poem home  and it resonated with me. How many times have our kids said,”Nothing!” when asked what they’ve been up to at school? This is the same school where the children will be painting their noses red for Red Nose Day next week rather than buying lots of plastic noses – well done to the staff leading the way. I love their attitude.

    Your garden is looking good, and I am envious of that Jay. Only ever seen one from a distance.

      We once watched a group of Jays collecting acorns just across the road, coming back again and again but that was a few years ago and they haven’t been back since. That was very special. 🙂
