starting slowly


Thank you for all your questions - more very welcome, I am going to try to post every day, or at least every other day, otherwise I am going to run out of steam completely! I shall launch in to them tomorrow.

For today, a list:
  1. Yesterday I made soap for the first time.
  2. One of my new hens has started laying.
  3. This evening we are racking eleven gallons of wine and making beer.
  4. I have just spilled museli all over the kitchen floor, which isn't going to help our Mouse Problem at all.
  5. Three Legs has a water infection again and is back at the vet.
  6. And finally, hang out all the flags ... Leo has had a poo! After forty eight hours and a telephone call to the doctor we gave him some very dilute apple juice, which had the required effect. Luckily I wasn't involved at all - it was B's turn to change his nappy :).
For today, that is all. Tomorrow, I pick a random question.

  1. Ahhh shifting those stuck poos. Memories! When you get to shifting the mucus out their noses when they are so bunged up .... I resorted to sucking it out gently .... amazing that animal behaviour kicks in at those times. Though I understand there are gadgets one can purchase just for that job.

    Lovely.

  3. Question for further thought: what would your ideal weekend consist of?

    Oh, and good news about the hens - how exciting. What sort are they, and will there be pictures?

    I am making mincemeat this weekend. Cannot wait for the smell - the smell! - to fill entire house. Am wondering if could cook it on the woodburner.... Thus making eco-friendly mincemeat. :)
