Re: Plastic or wooden chicken house?

I've got a cube - yes they are very expensive but suits me fine. Would go for a plastic one if you can as they are so much easier to clean. )t'

Re: What are you all doing?

The plain bits are a 2.75 needle June and the fair isle section is a 3.25 - I presume because fair isle is a bit bulkier.. I love the tweedy wool too - it has such natural rich colours - it reminds me of a pre-raphaelite painting as the colours come together - really rich earthy tones. It's a bit li...

Lemon Curd

Made some yesterday - used the Hairy Bikers recipe on the bbc website. Had some for breakfast this morning and it's bloomin lovely so much better than the shop bough versions and very easy to make and a great way to use the chicken's eggs. Also it does make you think about what you're eating when yo...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Half a pound is fine - lose half a pound every week and before you know it you've lost a stone I've feeling quite chipper this week as I'm wearing some clothes I've not fit in for a while although according to the scales I've not lost a pound in the last week and a half. Hey ho. Losing weight is def...

Re: BGT
