I was very hopeful that we were going to be snowed in yesterday. When I went to feed the chickens, there were the tiniest flakes of snow coming down and by breakfast time I looked out on this
I was very excited but after about seven and a half minutes it had stopped. So that was that. Hope it's not all we're going to get this winter.
So the Saturday of sledging was not to be, but someone had something else up his sleeve.....
After breakfast Jonathan turned to me and said, "Joanne, I've done something....". The look on his face was very familiar. Jonathan has a place in the village he likes to sneak to when I'm not around. It's called Carolynne's Cabin and it's his idea of heaven. It's in the old shop and Carolynne and Colin buy and sell second hand furniture and antiques.
Meanwhile we have a problem with our roosters. Three of my chicks have grown into cockerals and they have started to fight. There is nothing more horrible - they are so vicious, and you feel so sorry for the ones being picked on.
Look how the big one in the middle of the picture is stalking the one running off to the right. The poor thing was covered in blood. We are going to have to get rid of three of them - I've asked Jonathan to do it tomorrow while I'm at work.
