Clearly any weight I'm losing is going off my feet! Doesn't matter I need it off my triple chins and massive hippo tummy. My feet. Slender toes, that's me! Oh and I had to take my watch in a notch too! I'm all about the wrists and the feet.
Quick search on good old google images found this recent photo of myself.
Quick look at my pretty flowers!
This year, for the first time I can recall, these two peonies are in flower together. I've wrote about these before. They are allowed to stay in my blue/purple garden because they were the HG's Grandmother's. I've three varieties. The cerise pink one is traditionally the first one out. It then tends to bloom for a day and then get smashed to smithereens by storms! Next to flower is the big double pinky red ball one you see. Like I say, I've NEVER seen them bloom together before. Also I seem to have double the bloomage! The last of the three is the biggest both in stature and bloom. They are still in tight bud and weeks off. They will be at least 5ft tall and need staking. Really big football sized palest of pink frilly petalled balls of beauty!
Yesterday, I did five loads of washing as we were out all day Saturday and I cleaned the bird feeders.
You know that song from Mary Poppins..Feed the birds, tuppence a bag.
More like a week's wages round here!!
I've also got another feeder station at the other side of my garden and ground feeders and wall feeders! Lately though my arm is aching from all the saluting I'm doing as Mr n Mrs Magpie are often frolicking around the feast! I think I need to quit this superstition! They really are beautiful birds.
Anyhow, what was I doing on Saturday? I'll have to tell you tomorrow! It's mad busy at work, I've barely got the time to hit 'publish'!
I'll be back!
Lots of love from

The rest of you will follow the wrists and feet in time. Wow what a lot of feeders you must have some amazing visitors.ReplyDelete
Not as many as I'd like! I want a woodpecker!Delete
Love the flowers, the ankles and the wrists and it MUST be coming off other places as well! :-)ReplyDelete
Intrigued about Saturday!
Yes, my shoulders are thinner - my clothes are slipping off!Delete
That's a lot of bird feeders - who are you, Tippi Hedren? xxReplyDelete
Hahahahahahahahaaaa that's funny - though sometimes the starlings do look a bit sinister lined up on the washing line ready to swoopDelete
Ah yes, the slender feet syndrome, I have it, too. It does seem unfair that this is where the weight goes of first. I have come to love my double chin as I guess it is going t stay with me for a while, probably in the form of turkey flaps if the weight goes down a bit... I bet your garden is full of birds. I quite fancy propping up a chair and watch them for a bit.ReplyDelete
Pop round anytime! I'm laughing at the old turkey wobble. I have one tooDelete
I'd like to hang a few bird feeders around the garden but the manic squirrel won't leave us alone and I don't want to encourage any more either. Smiling at you having to move the buckles on shoes and watches. Typical isn't it. But any loss is good so well done. xxReplyDelete
Have you tried squirrel busters? I've got one and they are really clever how they keep them off!Delete
Loving the idea of lardy Northern birds! xxReplyDelete
I speak from experience!!!Delete
I am all about the wrists and ankles too! Why is it that odd parts of us lose weight and the bits we want it gone from stay the same! Aggh! You have a real smorgasbord there for the birdsReplyDelete
I'm glad I'm not alone!!Delete
You must spend all day topping up those feeders. That explains the wrists ;-). XxReplyDelete
About once a week really but I clean them weekly too. Mealworms go out everyday. They adore them!Delete
You make me laugh! Congratulations on your perfectly slim toes and wrists! You must have some happy birds. -JennReplyDelete
I love my garden pets!Delete
Love your bird feeders. As far as squirrels are concerned, dust the bird food with chili powder, squirrels don't like it and it doesn't affect the birds. (The squirrel will have a good feed of it to start with but watch it when it comes back the next day or so and takes the first sniff, you can almost see it recoil in horror ...)ReplyDelete
I don't have a squirrel and I think I'd just probably spend a fortune on its own squirrel feeder and squirrel food!!Delete
I am impatiently waiting for the one flower to open on the new peony pale pink) I planted last year. The old peony (dark pinky red) is flowering but seems to have all of it's flowers on one side for some reason-x-ReplyDelete
