I found this seemingly abandoned partridge egg on our courtyard lawn a few days ago. The girls were very excited and Jade believes it may be fertilised and contain a chick. So a glass fruit bowl was commandeered and filled with grass cutting and places by the AGA. The crocheted duckling has a hole underneath into which they placed the egg. The white disc is a temperature and humidity monitor.
Time will tell.

Much needed rain overnight and luckily today I’m indoors in the office book keeping and paying our bills today. We have a well stocked larder after yesterday and various necessities are arriving on Thursday courtesy of Amazon’s subscription service for repeat orders on a monthly, bi-monthly, try-monthly (or even longer) basis. My necessary forays into the danger zone by car are now
1) twice a month to go to the office (15 minutes away) whilst visiting the butchers on the way.
2) once a week to collect fresh produce from the local pub (who are transforming into an online local grocery store) and on the way go to the supermarket.
