Feeding the ducks

We have Norah staying so after breakfast and after we'd made 2 dozen sausage rolls we headed out.

We went to the park, Norah went on the swings, there was a small boy at the park with his mother, he was wearing swimming goggles.

'Allergy?' I asked his mum sympathetically.
'No' she replied 'We are going down to the lock next, he's wearing the goggles in case he falls in'.

I'm glad it's not just my kids that do funny things.

From the park we too went on to the lock, Norah reminded me that it is no longer ecologically sound to feed white bread to the ducks. So we took a small bag of frozen peas, cheap ones kept just for this purpose.

I have to say the ducks greeted the offering of peas with all the enthusiasm of a teenage boy being given a plate of salad when he'd ordered a Big mac and fries!

I too did the pea thing with the ducks and I've never seen them so disgusted. The peas sank to the bottom uneaten.

That sounds like a very relaxing trip out. Didn't know about the white bread but am intrgued about the peas! Catriona
