Our resident squirrels are little sods for stealing the birds food. They'll sit there stealing peanuts while I'm watching and then eat them while staring me down! They don't care at all!

Funny fox story - years ago when I lived in town, my ex was in the front room of our flat and had the courtyard door open in the evening as it was hot. A fox ran in and stole one of his trainers! He never did find it (he was horrible so 😂😂).
I've just read an article from the BBC news about a fox in Berlin which had a shoe fetish and had stolen hundreds of shoes. It was found with a pair of flip flops in its mouth.
Re. food, I've just chomped through a punnet of black seedless grapes without realising and am going to have a fucking humdinger of a churning belly soon 🥴

Ohhh that's reminded me of something really funny. In my brother's village, they have a Facebook page for info. Someone put on there about their kid's wellies being stolen from their doorstep. They were so angry (I would be too). A neighbour checked their cctv and it was a bloody fox 🤣🤣🤣 Why do they love shoes so much?!

I'm really tempted to leave an old shoe out tonight, just for the comedy. I could share the theft on here! 🦊

I think to identify them (or, indeed, to care) you have to be both a. Scottish and b. up on Scottish football 'culture'.
I will need to head to the mother thread as I am a) Scottish b) up on Scottish footy culture and c) a nosey biatch!

I hate horror films, but on Pocahontas’ recommendation I watched Midsommar and loved it. Not for me Saw or IT, no sirree Bob.

We are lucky our garden backs onto the river so get ducks, squirrels and foxes in the garden. One night we saw a badger on the opposite bank, couldn’t believe it! My dog doesn’t bother at all and just sits and looks at the mad squirrels that steal fruit from our pear tree 🤣

Wise Fraus, my courgettes are just about to hit their peak, any inspiring things I can do with them? It isn't something we really ever eat but I grow them as they're usually successful. They just end up ribboned in a stir fry at the mo.
I made a really lovely pan seared salmon with mash and sauteed leeks and courgette the other day - was absolutely delicious and I really impressed myself which is a bit sad 😂

The crisps aren't particularly 'suspect', as such - I'm generally not in the mood for them, personally speaking, but I accept that tastebuds are subjective.
hey, hold on, are there crisp crumbs in my Toad Coffee? <confused>🐸 ☕

I don’t really like the new Mother Thread, the vibe has changed, no matter what chaos HelloJackie throws at the world. I’m happy to stay here and read @Pocahontas ’s amazing recaps. @Bookweevil ’s glossary is a work of genius!

But on to much more pleasant things — potential courgette uses should definitely include this which I made last week (used double the amount of feta and a load of sweet corn too)


also, I’d probably experiment with courgette & Parmesan fries. Don’t have a recipe I can recommend, but I’m sure if you poke lovely @Flumps when she’s back she’ll have some advice

And thanks @BananaSmith, I’ve just treated myself to a wee run to Dunnes to break up the old age unpleasantness 🤣

Ooh I have all of those ingredients aside from dill (can't stand it!)

Fraus I have cooked a proper meal - it’s only chilli con carne but I’m right proud of myself. Still feeling a bit bad in the old head, @colouredlines you look fab and I so related to the head/food mess up. You’re my idol for getting on with other things and letting the overthinking slide to the point you’ve got into your lovely dress x

& also I think it was @peperomia who I read talking about self image and I really relate too.I’ve been exhausted by the negative voice in my head recently and I also don’t have a secure self image, it was nice to read how I feel and know I’m not alone x

@Raker , love a wee mooch round Dunnes when I'm home.

My first job was at Dunnes after school and saturdays, had to wear the blue and white nylon dress and tights, lost count of how many static shocks I got each bloody night but loved it when it was my turn with the price gun:LOL:
Ah sure, they’re all pretty chic now with the black uniforms 🤣

the kids stuff is amazing, but I’m obsessed with the Helen James considered home range — I’ve bought the book and everything 💕
