Yay it's the weekend...

Can anyone tell me why we are having our windows replaced in the middle of winter? 
Okay so just call us crazy!
The decision obviously must have been a good idea at some stage. Maybe it came when we were in the middle of our bathroom renovations and we weren't thinking straight. 
Well, whenever the decision was taken it's irrelevant now because it's actually happening.
 I'm not sure that the guys who are doing the work are entirely happy about the decision either. 
Here's a photo that I took early yesterday to record this momentous event.
Yes it was all perfect weather (not)...a hoolie blowing, the rain lashing down and barely any daylight, hence the joiner wearing his little miners lamp. The plant (Fatsia japonica) in the photo is out of focus because it was dancing around in the gale and the fact that I was shivering even in the few seconds that I was outside also may have been a contributing factor to the bad quality of this shot.   
I suppose I can't be angry with the guys for the damage to my new shooting bulbs because they were concentrating on getting the window in as fast as they could, but I was sad because I'd spent hours on my hands and knees planting them only a few months back. 
I'm just hoping that they recover and continue to sprout. 
Maybe a little sunlight might help...we'll have to wait and see. 
I'm not so sure I like the boot imprint as a feature.
So I decided to have a few hours escaping the madness to visit the garden centre. 
I wanted to buy a bird table anyway so it was a good excuse...I had to go. 
It was so wonderful to wander around looking at so many lovely things...books, furniture, ornaments, art, bird and wildlife products plus tropical fish and that was all before I even got to the plant section.
It's strange that sometimes things just leap into my trolley and I'm not aware of it until I reach the checkout! It happens all the time especially in the supermarket...I mean where does all that chocolate come from? 
(but I do know where it'll end up hehe

Look at these beautiful primroses...well they just had to come home with me. 

I have a few bird boxes already dotted around the garden but I hadn't one for the little Wren...so I obviously had to sort that error out promply didn't I?
 As soon as I arrived home my son went out into the garden armed with a ladder, hammer and the nest box to find a suitable site. 
Isn't this cute?
Even after only about an hour of it going into the garden I noticed flutterings around the new box and that was even before the 'For Let' sign went up! 

But the pièce de résistance is the bird table....what do you think?
Even the sun popped out for the photo!

It was so funny to see my regular bird visitors doing a fly-by to check it out. 
They'd fly towards the table and then swiftly via off at speed and an incredible angle. They got nearer and nearer until one little blue tit took a deep breath and landed. 
He was well rewarded with lots of tasty treats and then it was everyone for themselves. 
I'm about to purchase a new camera so I'm hoping that I'll be able to capture some of the visitors soon. 
Well it's Saturday night so I must away and have fun https://secure.quebles.com/content/hotmail/emoticons/1508619.gif
