The chooks were not really interested in taking part in anything work related once they had found that the corner by the compost bin was looking like a good place for some grubs today. So all we see of them is their fluffy bottom side inbetween feet fulls of dirt being hoofed onto the grass.
And then Missy, who decided that she would observe from afar and took her seat on the old table. This look that she is wearing is the one which means 'I have no idea what any of you are doing and don't much care to join in as it all looks rather too much like hard work - taking photos, playing or kicking up dirt, not really for me thanks all the same'
So the photos are done, just in time as it is now starting to rain. Will be getting them all onto the website (www.landcuckoo.com) next if you wanted to have a look. After that I have to figure out how to be in 2 places at the same time or at the very least, how to be at one before I have left the other, oops, I either need a very good plan or a Dr Who moment!
Take care all

Did knuckle down and get the pile of paperwork, which has been threatening to take over and run a small country, reduced to nothing today though! Look at that - a clear desk, even as I write which is a few hours later the desk is still clear.
Anyway, didn't get my Ikea fix today, will have to plan another trip to look at all the lovely storage..................... ummmmm boxes, files, things to put other things in, I love it! And meatballs.
Off to see what Hubby has rustled up for dinner
Take care all

So now I am resisting the urge to raid the biscuit cow (its where the good biccies are kept) and am trying to hang on til lunch time. Made a good soup yesterday with random veggies that we had left before we go off and raid the farm shop later. Still doing ok with our restricted budget for food so far this month (even including the 4 currys!).

I hope you all had a lovely weekend full of romance and pampering. We, in the Land of Cuckoo had a duvet day yesterday! This consisted of finding all available pillows and duvets and sitting on or under them whilst watching films and eating pizza!
Time for more tea, tissues and a vitamin c boost now. Take care all and stay safe

We had the first egg of 2009 yesterday! That has been a long time coming, seems ages since our girls stopped their egg production for the winter. This one is being attributed to Galdys, seen here at the front. This, incidentally, is the first day that the Chickadees have decided to come out of their enclosure due to the 'white stuff' on the ground. It took them 2 days to decide that it was ok to come out of their house without any encouragement! So why no picture of the fabulous egg I speak of? Well apart from the fact that I believe that you are all familiar with the humble egg, I must confess that I dropped the darn thing! S'ok I did manage to save it for a scramble which I shall be tucking into for my lunch.
So what should I do with the lemons I seem to have accumulated? Lemon cake, lemon curd....... no lets go for good old fashioned lemonade.
Thinly peel 8 lemons and place peel in bowl with 8oz caster sugar (I gave up with the peeler and used a zester instead, I'm sure it will have the same effect!). Pour over 4 pints of boiling water and leave overnight in a cool place. Juice the 8 lemons and keep the juice in the fridge. The next day, strain the mixture and add the chilled lemon juice, bottle and keep chilled.
Dug out this recipe in my favourite cook book, found in a charity shop a few years ago, I always seem to find something good to cook from it.
Will have the finished product tomorrow. So take care and be safe, til tomorrow x
