Crush

It was hard to get away from the main topic of conversation today – Michael Jackson’s untimely sudden death. This afternoon sat in the reception area of the motorcycle training school I go to was no exception.

Doomed To Eat

I love to eat. I love food. One of the reasons I exercise as much as I do is so that I can afford the luxury of stuffing my face with food all day without becoming a rotund lardy fatass who could hide small animals in the folds of my stomach. The good thing is [...]

An Eggstraordinary Event

IT’S FINALLY ARRIVED…… OUR FIRST EGG! I walked outside this evening to let the girls out for a roam around the garden before they turned in for the night. As they waddled off to the grass I figured I’d spend a few moments clearing the lump of poo I’d seen in their nest box this [...]

Weekend Summary

Saturday was the day of the Annual Village Fete. I absolutely love the fete which is held on the church lawn a stones throw away from our house. They set up a few old fashioned games for the kids, like hooking ducks out of a paddling pool and there are cake stalls, a wide array [...]

Wendy had her first loud verbal flip out this morning when she caught site of something in the hedge that she didn’t like the look of. She immediatetly ran to the other end of the coop where she began shouting in standard chicken format ‘buck, buck, buck BAGERRRRK’. Susan wandered in circles around her trying [...]

Which Came First? Chicken Or…

This morning getting ready for school was frought with ‘when are we going to let the chickens out?’, ‘do we need to let the chickens out now?’, ‘how long before we let the chickens out?’ The boy I usually have to repeatedly badger to go and feed and clean out his guinea pigs couldn’t wait [...]

Introducing the newest members of Foxsden…. Susan and Wendy Susan is a Bluebell and Wendy is part Speckledy, both hybrids and both chosen because of the way they were alert and curious in their coop at the breeders. This pair took no time in coming up to the fence to give me an eyeing up [...]

We spent the afternoon building a chicken coop. There is a large patio area at the top of  the garden which we never use. We placed the shed up there last year when we created the driveway at the side of the house and our washing line is up there. Even though it’s a nice [...]
