Happy Easter

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I made beef in red wine (slimming world recipe) for tea last night with some new potatoes and broccoli and it was yum and there is half left for tonights tea too.
I washed the bedding and dryed it on the line, my laddos dryed first and i had left mine on the line as it was still damp.I looked out at it and thought whats that on my duvet cover (which is cream silk with an embroidered pattern).I thought it was a butterfly but it was actually blood!!
I found more splats of blood over the fence and grass so i presume an injured bird must of flown over.I rewashed my duvet and it has come out but i couldn`t find any sign of anything injured in my garden.
Well enough of my waffle as i need to go to work in a mo.
