Pat - If they'd turned up early they'd have had to do it themselves wouldn't they? By all accounts FODMAP is very effective at identifying troublesome foods so do give it a go when your guests have gone.
Yvie - I don't mind snakes but then the worst we'd get here is a viper and they're shy. I wouldn't go actively hunting either. None spotted so far but, finally we have some small brownish birds I recognise - chaffinches and sparrows scavenging on the terrace so I'll put some ground food out for them. I suspect the rest are mostly warblers but which ones?
What kind of new shed RB? Fancy chalet or workhorse potting shed? Exciting either way.
I have just started a huge pot of fat free vegetable soup to keep me going when I get a snack attack as I can't see me doing formal meals over the next week or so tho I will no doubt treat myself at some point. Other than that, the hosepipe is now laid out while I consider where I want my new edge to be and I've found the missing narcissus poeticus I had stashed along with some alliums. More pots then.
Sun's coming out so I may just go and walk the dogs and then I can potter while I wait for the plumber - bathroom sink has a leak, needs a new tap and I want to discuss moving it anyway.
