I am about to add a few new things to the range of activities here at McDowall Manor:
1. Chocolate making. I don't actually eat a whole lot of chocolate, but this is another one of those skills that you can "grow into." Desert seemed to be a logical progression from my home-made entrees and mains. I reckon I'll have a fair crack at this one.
2. Chooks. I'm currently pricing up 3 girls (guaranteed) to be delivered. Now, this is where I curse Farina. Oh yeah, we all love her to bits, but bloody hell. My Rozie spotted her Banded Plymouth Rocks chooks and I was doomed. It didn't matter that I could get the very reliable and placid Isa Browns so much cheaper. To quote the website that I am using, "Add some class to your flock!" LOL.
So, I have decreed that one of these chooks shall be named "Farina" in honour of our site hostess. (I am just grateful that I don't have to buy a flock of damn Peking ducks as well!)
3. I won't give away too many details yet, because this could be a fool's dream - but I am thinking of building some decking in the big girl's yard to make a floor for the Pizzeria. It's a bit of a stretch for Andy the Unhandy Man to attempt.
