I spent the day at Short Mat Bowls and as arrived back in the village I drove up to the field to collect today's eggs. Hens and ducks were down the lane and in the veggie patches, one of the gate had somehow blow open in the strong winds. It's not easy getting so many hens and ducks back in when you're just one person! It took about half an hour. An hour or so later I went back up to shut them away for the night. As I walked back down the lane I met another hen coming back up to the field and managed to get her into her house - lucky for her - as she probably would not have survived the night if the fox had been around. Loads of eggs this week - I sold a dozen yesterday and another seven dozen today at Bowls - which will help pay for the feed which I use not only for the hens and ducks, but also for the goats and rabbits. They all seem to enjoy the same stuff which works for me!
Three things I like:
1. Coming home and the woodburner with just enough embers to spring back to life with a new log or two.
2. Garlic, cream, butter, lemon and parsley mushrooms on pasta for supper with a sprinkling of Cheddar cheese.
3. Having a lovely massage in the warmth of the woodburner from my Physio.
