Chook preparations have started

Well more than just started. I have read up, researched, been on the course (, ordered my chicken house and run and 4 young chooks.

Today we picked up the large van required to collect the chicken house.

And embark on a trip to Ardley in Oxfordshire. We plan to make it a lovely little trip out, taking our time, collecting the run/house and finding somewhere pleasant for lunch.

I thought dinner looked rather tasty tonight, here is a pic.

Haddock on a bed of gently sauted red onion, tomato, pak choi, garlic and seasoning. Sprigs of rosemary dotted around and a grating of cheese on top made a delicious fish dish, served with new potatoes and green beans.

We took Max out for an evening walk before the sun went down, just gently as I had a stupid headache. It was lovely to be out in the fresh air and we discussed more walking and cycling ideas. Here's goodbye to winter.
