Recently, some friends of mine from the market mentioned that they were having trouble keeping the grass down in their garden. It's a fairly large garden, about two acres and the grass was getting rather long, in fact too long for them to manage really so another friend from the market offered to lend them a lawnmower. Well three of them actually.
Cute aren't they. Mummy, daddy and baby. I nipped up to pay them a visit this morning and to take them a bag of apples which they absolutely loved, although, they were also very keen to sample the chocolate cake that went with my coffee and seemed rather put out when they weren't allowed any. In addition to getting the lawn mowed, there is also the added bonus of piles of horse poo which, once it's rotted down, will be perfect for them to put on their veggie patch.
A little update on the chicken front. This week, I have been getting an egg a day from my lovely girls. I don't know which of them is laying the eggs but they are delicious, despite being tiny and I had three eggs scrambled for brekkie this morning after I got back from the car boot sale ..... I can't face breakfast at 6.30am so I usually have a bacon butty when I get there and then breakfast at about 10.30ish when I get back. The car boot sale was great, I got a couple of lovely things. A cute little pale blue enamel bucket with the word "eggs" on the front and a really sweet quilted throw. I will post some pictures tomorrow after my camera battery is charged.
