Popped into the local butcher today (Peter Timms in Edgeware) - and after a month away, it is still bustling - and the shop conversation is still sweet, and the ribs I picked up will be delicious! Also grabbed a birdfeeder which Al has introduced to our garden to bring more life into the garden during the winter. The birds nailed the last one in a week! Digby would like to nail it, (it is full of meat off cuts and fat I believe). Lucky birds!
