Five at the Feeder

Well we started wrapping pressies again at 6pm on Monday night.  Jase went to bed around 10ish as he had to be up at 3 for work the following day.  I put 'Miracle on 34th Street' in the dvd player and settled down in front of a roaring fire to continue on the mountain of pressies!  
When the film finished I popped in 'The Grinch that Stole Christmas' - can you see a theme here???
By 2.30am and several rain forests burnt in the fire, I had a cuppa and waited for Jase to get up for work.  Really pleased that most of the wrapping was done.  Just a few bits left to wrap before we drive to Scotland.  
Went to bed at 4am and woke up at 7.30 to let the girls out.   

Its been freezing cold again recently with lots of de-icing needed for the  water holders.  Don't get me wrong, i don't like chemicals, but when it comes to car windscreens at 4 in the morning, screen de-icer is the way forward!  At least i use a pump action bottle!

Been busy in the kitchen making a few mince pies for the neighbours and some peanut butter cups for whoever!  They are delicious, just like the Reeses ones in the shops.  Good old Nigella!!

Popped over to Mum's yesterday as it was her birthday.  Jase came straight from work.  Had fish finger sandwiches (haven't had those in years).  The height of culinary excellence!

Had to shuffle the girls around last night as we are both away with work.  Typical that they were all in one eglu again, so opened the egg port and grabbed the nearest feathery bottom, much to their disgust, to put them into the 'spare' eglu.  They are really going through the feed at the moment.  They eat much more now the days are colder.

We changed them from pelleted food to mash as the new girls had been brought up on it.  It is messier, but they all love it and it takes them longer to fill up so eases the boredom when we are away and they can't free range.  
I often go out to see 5 feathery bottoms at the troughs.  Head in, munching away.  

Jase is home tomorrow night, so they can at least have a wander all day Friday/Saturday.
Next door said they would look after them whilst we are away over Christmas.  
Well its minus bloody freezing here in Geneva and I have to be up at the crack of dawn (well earlier) so off to bed now.
Sleep well all of you!

  1. I always use warm water to de-ice the windscreen. Not boiling as that will crack the screen - just lukewarm out of the tap. In fact, cold water also works - it only has to be warmer than the ice on the windscreen! Much better than chemicals :-)


stop me being locked up for posting to myself.....
