So it’s been a while since I blogged anything here. The world has been in financial crisis, the Formula 1 has been won by Vettel again, and I’ve been generally entertaining myself with family life and other things.
Sadly last week we lost our speckled chicken Dopey. I can only hope that she had a good life whilst she was with us, short though it was. The vet reckoned that there was probably some kind of internal problem like a twisted stomach that caused her to prolapse. She’s now gone to the big coup in the sky. RIP Dopey. Our other chickens Korma and Tikka are doing fine and are about to embark on their first winter with us. This should be an interesting prospect, which may well be full of me fretting abou their water freezing. We shall see.
