Today we're gearing up for the slight change in diet, lots of totally inappropriate food has been thrown out (don't panic most of it is out of date and not useful to anyone else). We are determined to step off the processed food conveyor belt. Now that most of the initial planting is done I will have the time to cook from scratch all the time. No more convenience meals, well not bought ones anyway, we have lots of our own, Soups, Mediterranean Veg selections and things along those lines safely tucked away in the freezer ready for those days when you just can't be bothered. And admit it we all have those!
The chickens enjoyed the sun yesterday, luckily it looks as though they are going to be getting another day of it. They use the houses for shade when it's hot, and the only thing they are missing is a good dust bathing area, although they have made themselves a little one in the old Eglu run. I must do something about this today. The new girls are very at home now and although still timid around me, the logistics of the flock has been sorted out and they are all happy together.
I am going to play a Joker today as Lovely Hubby has managed to eat his way through most of the meats that we had in the freezer and as much as I would love to support the local butcher, he is expensive for bulk buys and after weighing up the pros and cons I decided yesterday that I really should, mostly for the sake of my purse, darken the doors of the local Supermarket. As if to persuade me even further .......
..... Mr T*sco sent me some more vouchers to add to the ones already lurking in my purse. In total I have £18.50, should buy me a lot of
dead animal flesh sorry I mean meat!! So Mr T*sco is paying for most of my shopping then.
The diet kicks off tomorrow and I'll be plotting our menus and recording our daily thoughts etc over on my other Blog, nip over and have a peek from time to time if you're interested. I simply want to keep menus etc seperately so will continue in my own inimitable fashion to record our normal day to day activities here. No doubt the two will overlap occasionally but you are a very forgiving little band of readers that I suspect are getting used to my wild and wacky ramblings.
And for that I THANK YOU.
