Cor, what a beauty!!!

I'm glad I took this yesterday before the storm last night, as my poor daffs are looking a bit worse for wear today.

At least there are some benefits to living down south, with the North looking to having a very white Easter. Those poor old Easter bunnies will have to get their snow shoes out to deliver the eggs.

I caught a brief glimpse of the Chancellors (sounds like a band) last night very uninspiring. With my eldest allowed to vote, he has been asking a few questions about parties and policies to which I shrug my shoulders and sigh and say 'They are all the same really' what a shame!

The girls are back!!

My girls have started laying again hooray - no more shop bought eggs. You can't beat their eggs they just taste delicious (but I would say that wouldn't I).

They are actually in really good condition considering the winter we have just had.

What a porker!

We went for a drive in the country yesterday and came across a field with six beautiful pigs in it.

I wanted to put one in the boot of the car and take it home but common sense prevailed and I took some photos instead.

I would like to own a couple of pigs and then eat them - think crispy bacon and sausages, but it is surprising the number of people who get all strange about the thought of that (where do they think Tesco get theirs from, at least mine would have had a happy life before being dispatched). ho hum!

A little peice of spring

What a difference a week makes. As you can see I have an amazing display of daffodils, far more than last year and the tulips are doing well as well.

I find today one of the better days of the year - firstly it is the first day of spring hooray! and secondly its my birthday (I have a very large chocolate cake sitting in the kitchen jut begging to be eaten but I am going to share it with friends tonight - oh the self control!)

Anyway just a comment on a previous post about the cliff at Stone Bay, as suspected no work has happened yet!

Happy Mothers Day

 I have been taking a few flower pictures this weekend, to try and prove to myself that Spring is on its way.

I took this this morning in my mums garden, one of the very few places at the moment which actually have daffodils.

Happy Mothers Day.

Tetley Tea

My son goes to Thanet college and he had to produce an advert for Tetley T-Bags. As you can see my kitchen was taken over for the shoot.

Actually I haven't been paid my location fee yet, I better go and find out where it is!

Stone Bay Cliff Face

Seems like we are having our own cliff face problems in Broadstairs.

All the beach hut owners in the bay just along from Stone Bay have been told that we can't put our huts down the beach until the 1st May, it was supposed to be 1st April (gives me a bit more time to repaint mine).

A friend who was fed up at the thought of having to wait, rang the council who told her that the cliff face has crumbled rather badly over the winter and they are going to shut the prom and put netting over the cliff face, this is supposed to be starting asap - we will see!
