The Headless chicken post!

September 28th, 2010 by Heidi

** Don’t worry the only decapitated chicken in this post is me! **

I think I have mentioned before that without a routine I tend to get a little lost and confused, and that is what has been happening to the blog of late. Since Steve’s big changes, which I promise he will write about soon, our routine has been all over the place.

There are some pretty cool perks to working for a butcher’s shop, one of them being the tasty things to eat we get to enjoy, and share. And right now Charlie thinks I have the best job in the whole world!

Two birds, one stone!

April 20th, 2010 by Heidi

The weekend didn’t just have people coming and going, we also sold all the quail and another of the ducks, leaving us with only 2 males and 8 females. Having the double benefit of providing a little extra cash and fewer mouths to feed.

A new job!

March 8th, 2010 by Heidi

I have re-joined the ranks of the properly employed! That is I am employed by someone else, and it is perfect. It is a work-from-home part-time web development job. So I can do what I enjoy and earn some extra pennies, without having to worry about travel, or leaving the sheep or dogs home alone all day.
