Not allocating a meal to a specific day as daughter No2's boyfriend stays for meals one to two nights a week and I need to do meals that he will eat on days he's here. I've got everything in to make these meals this week.

On our daily walk Sherlock likes to stop in the farmers field and harvest a carrot or two. He'd stay in the carrot field all afternoon if I let him. He loves carrots.

Can you spot the snake in the water? It's in the centre of the picture just near the bank. There were two of them swimming along the bank today. They are very common around here and are young grass snakes and were about 12-14 inches long.  I did a couple of years ago see a rather large snake slither across a path we were walking along. I also nearly stepped on quite a large snake when walking along a track. It was curled up and looked to be in a deep sleep or maybe it was unwell because it did not feel me approaching until I nearly stood on it.


  1. Sherlock certainly has a grin on his face - good job it's healthy food. I can just see the snake in the picture - it took me a moment or two to find it. We don't see them in the wild round our neck of the woods. Have a happy week.

  2. Wow, I've never seen a snake around here, brilliant. Bless Sherlock going for healthy food. I'm sure Archie would turn his nose up at carrots, though who knows?
