It's a long day for such a small person, from 8 till 6pm, so when Zack has his days with us we try to go out for a while in the afternoons to break it up a bit for him. We had some lunch out the other day, a nice cup of tea
and a healthy salad with a baked potato, simple and very tasty.
Zackary enjoyed sitting outside, watching people come and go.
We were being watched while we ate by this little robin red breast, perched on a chair looking for scraps.
When the person next to us left their table, he swooped straight in there, picking about to see what he could find.
Quite a tame little fellow, I caught this picture just after he'd been on the floor between Andrew and Zack, an unexpected guest picking at Zack's dropped pieces of food. He seems to be on a good thing here and we'll be looking out for him next time we go.
It's funny as it's only an extra day a week, but we seem to have more time and it's been nice to spend some of it outside in the garden when the weather was a bit warmer. I found a comfy seat with a cup of tea, good book and some hexis I'm working on.
The book is Into the Water by Paula Hawkins. I really enjoyed her other book, The Girl on a Train, and this one is just as gripping and written in a similar way, from different peoples perspectives.
Little hexis waiting to be made into something glorious....
I wasn't the only one enjoying the new free time, Gary stretched out and caught some ZZZZZs
I had to show you little Alfie too, what a face he was pulling at me here, another one who likes lots of extra cuddles!
