chicken marmalade

Ma and Pa arrived on Friday and their car expired on the doorstep. We took it to the garage and it won't be fixed until this evening - so they are staying another night.

I am not quite sat underneath the table whimpering and sucking my thumb: but let us just say that it is wrong to expect two women such as myself and Ma to share a kitchen.

BECAUSE SHE IS SO BOSSY.

We are having fun though. Well, I am. I think.

Off to Lake Vrnwy now.

Well, after I have bottled the marmalade and Ma has finished weeding the garden.

Oooooh! And we have more chicks. Eight. Maybe nine - one is still hatching and I don't know if it's going to make it. I am debating whether to help it along - but my harder side says that that' a no-no. Survival of the fittest and all that.

That is all.

  1. I'm so jealous, Lake Vyrnwy is absolutely gorgeous, and it'll be nice and quiet up there today (both Vrnwy and Vyrnwy are acceptable spellings :D)

    Have a fab day!

  3. I thought helping them along was bad for them? Or is that butterflies?

  4. Rhys - Vrnwy WAS lovely, but not that quiet - lots of holidaying older couples in walking boots :).

    Carol - it isn't supposed to be good for them. And I think the theory is also that if they can't do it themselves, then they're best not hatched at all. I've never done it before; but he was cheeping so loudly and was clearly so outraged at being left there that I gave in. He does seem alright now. I say 'he', because sod's law dictates it's probably a cockerel :).
