Well having been out and about and rushing around most of the day, I thought I had better get on here and write a few lines - My readers await - no pressure there then!

Haven't a clue what to write about - other than that I have now had my golden locks cut short - more practical for the summer - and more like my 'photo' avatar he he. Hardly interesting.

Extremely early start to get the spring cleaning donr before our families decend for the lovely long Easter weekend that starts this evening!

Son and daughter in law and baby en-route from Newcastle, but stuck in a traffic jam way up the top of the map, holiday rush maybe. Still they will be here before midnight.

My darling chickens have come up trumps and laid five eggs again today, so I am well stocked for over the weekend and all the mouths I have to feed.

Cake and biscuit making tonight if I have the energy, and have just decided that tomorrows lunch wiil be an informal affair with the racing bikers messing about here. Home made pork burgers which I made with pork from Paula's rare breed pig (see link on the right). Boy does her pork taste good! We will have bantams eggs to go with it too and I will either make rolls or a loaf depending on time and distractions!

I need to make a huge curry on Saturday ready for the next influx of family, our ever growing grandchildren. I am hoping that the weather turns warmer and drier so that I can hide a few goodies around the garden for them to find.

Sadly not my garden, but the well established garden of my friends in a village near here - which failed to load yesterday.

Aren't these spring bulbs around the apple trees just gorgeous - they have taken many many years to grow into such thick displays of flowers and they smell wonderful.

Apologies for this posting being so short - sometimes daily events of life get in the way to writing, not often, but probably over the next few days.

I just went out to give the chooks their evening meal of mixed corn to digest through the night, and they all ate it side by side without any squabbles. Last night they all roosted together too! Not a peep out of them or a cross squawk - guess they know where they all stand in the scheme of things now.

I threw out some chopped up bits of fat after lunch, and you should have seen Pumpkin run for it. She is so quick and they just can't catch her when she is on a 'mission'. She, dashing in right under the big girls noses and rushing out like greased lightning, and hiding in a small corner out of sight then does a repeat performance. Boy does it make the big girls cross and frustrated - but it makes me laugh to see as they get their come uppance from the 'little guys'
