Christmas came early this year

Christmas came early this yearMy hens are usually highly predictable and go off-lay when they moult. We then have along “dry” period with the first eggs turning up usually on Christmas Day.

I baggsied a carton before they so much as reached the shelf.

When I got home, Mr L was holding this in his hand – “An egg!” he declared.

The girls may be getting on in years but clearly they are not yet ready to retire and are keener than ever this season. Either that or somebody told them I had been playing away from home…

I’m going to have to fight somebody over who gets poached egg on toast for tea.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
