Messy Little Eater

Happy Friday Everyone!

How this week has flown and it's been a mixed week.

We went to visit Bruce's aunt in Cambridge and enjoyed lunch with her at the nursing home where she now lives.

Yesterday we went looking for a new car.  When we arrived the car we'd gone to see had been sold two days before but not removed from the dealer's website.

We got caught in traffic both ways so decided to have lunch and consoled ourselves with a Chinese meal.  It was absolutely delicious but we couldn't manage the dessert!

This male greenfinch was one of the visitors to our garden this week.  I had to smile at the picture with his little beak covered in the sunflower seed hearts he was obviously enjoying.

I'm going to link up with Annie's Stitch in Time blog for
  A Smile on Friday Week #135.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Out of every bad situation there is always a positive....a lovely chinese meal-nothing nicer :-)
I love your little messy green finch. Thanks for linking up this week.

Hi Barb, happy Friday - I love watching birds in the garden too but I'm never quick enough with my camera, - this little guy does look like he enjoyed his lunch too.... we have beautiful butterflies at the moment too. Enjoy your weekend Robyn

Oh what a bummer, car sold! They obviously hoped you'd come anyway and settle for something else. But you had a great Chinese meal out of it! Yumm! I love Chinese food.
Thanks for visiting earlier,

How frustrating about the car. I hope you find one to suit you soon. That is a lovely photo of the greenfinch. How nice to have him so close to your house. Kate x

Car shopping can be stressful! You will have some fun times ahead - there's all that haggling - that's what we do around here - to try to get the best price. Sorry the car you wanted was gone, but at least you had a good meal! Your hungry little bird is beautiful - great photo!

I can't get a decent picture of the goldfinches at my feeders, but boy have they been active lately! Love seeing this little guy!
