I proceeded to scrub with ***** Fluid when Eloise came back wings flapping and running like a headless chicken...pursued by Sage who wanted a piece of what Elly had...a tiny toad - eugh gross or what?!
    She kept thrashing it and throwing it around and then gobbled it up - DISGUSTING! ...

    Got sunburnt again and pleased to see more on their allotments today.
