And the other big news for us yesterday was that it was actually dry and windy enough to get some washing dried on the outside line - all that damp weather previously has meant that it was a waste of time pegging out, but I have a basketful of delightfully fresh smelling towels which blew in the wind yesterday - a wonderful smell.
The hens enjoyed themselves yesterday after I had given the hen house its weekly clean - fresh shavings and chopped straw make a wonderful bathing opportunity for them, and they all come rushing into their sections of the house as soon as I open the doors up again, and they make such a kerfuffle in the shavings that it is a joy to watch them enjoying themselves - and there are young hens laying their first eggs all the time now - they will soon all be in lay.
I had a quick dash to town yesterday in between the chicken shed cleaning and a school meeting, so that I could put some cheques in the bank and get change as I am running a booksale tomorrow morning at a local school so that the children get the chance to spend their World Book Day vouchers. It will be an early start for me as I have to be there for 8.15am to get set up and ready to sell from 8.45am! Should all be done by 10am though, so I can come home and put my feet up with a cuppa for a couple of hours before gym.
Today I have no school meeting, thank goodness, and only an afterschool gym club to run later on. I don't have to go anywhere or be anywhere until about 2.15pm so I can move a little more slowly this morning.......I have spared a thought for the Head Coach who should right now be in the air on his way to his week's holiday somewhere warm - Lanzarote? Tenerife? - not sure! He and his wife had to leave home at 5am this morning....
