Our Feathered Friends

Spent a quite day in the house yesterday. The weather was still very cold, James seemed to be sickening for a cold and Thea's toe was too painful to walk on. We baked bread and oat cakes, which worked out very well and spent some time doing literacy and math.
Hurray! Today we have been able to venture out again. Thea and James scootered down to the library to collect some books, I followed on foot behind. Whilst in the village we picked up ingredients to make bird cakes, we are taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch at the weekend. A few months ago Thea sent for a booklet from the RSPB - Family fun with birds, it has some good ideas including - a speedy bird cake recipe, how to make pine cone lardy seed feeders and edible pictures. It was a messy job making the bird cake just hope the birds appreciate our efforts, which are now hanging up outside on our gazebo.

Have just subscribed to Enchanted Learning for a year, I have been thinking about it for a while. Seems good value at $20 (£10.42).
