1. Presents are wrapped. Gingerbread reindeer are iced. Ready for Christmas.
2. While walking after dinner, I came across a baby bird hopping across the grass. All the other birds grew up months ago -- a late hatching? Its parents swooped around me; not attacking, just trying to distract me. One perched nearby and called loudly. I thought she was speaking to me, but then I realised the baby had frozen and was sitting motionless. I think mummy was telling it to be very quiet and still. I walked on.
3. Cheezles with cream cheese down the middle.
