well, down here April is a bonanza of public holidays. there's only 17 working days in the whole month, which is bad and good. bad because, in my grown up voice, verk is somewhat slow, and i am not sure that any economy can absorb 4 or 5 non-working days in one month. good, however, as it allows everyone to catch their breath, lets one catch up on some film watching (see the two reviews posted in one day), and of course lets James run wild, in particular when he visits Grandma and Grandad!
we went over to see Grandma and Grandad on Sunday. i went off and tried to do some gift and card shopping (you don't want to know how many wonderful events we celebrate in May), Michele put her feet up, Grandma got the camera ready and James and Grandad busied themselves with the important task of making sure that there was plenty of food for the birds which frequent the garden.
as you can see in the next one, James almost reaches the top of the bird table, and he more or less gets all of the seed onto it!
James, i am happy (and indeed proud) to report, loves all animals, and enjoys nothing more than trying to look after them, feed them and play with them. this doesn't, oddly, extend to the insect royalty of ants - he gets really upset when he sees them in the garden. it does, however, extend to a wish to feed even those who take pictures of him feeding the birdies, as the next picture shows!
if you're in our part of the world, i trust that you've also made the most of all the breaks! if you are in a part of the world that would rather verk than celebrate life, well, hope the working days have not been too bad!!!!
be very excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
