Bank Holiday Brunch

Another Bank Holiday to bring my birthday month to a close. So another lazy day with plenty of time for this and that.....The scrambled eggs up above are from our own hens who live in the back garden. 
Here's a poem about hens by Michaele Oleson which I found on the internet when we first got our girls.

All I Need To Know In Life I Learned From My Hens

Wake up early, stay busy
Rest when you need to, but always stay alert
Visit your favourite places every day
Scratch out a living
Routine is good
Plump is good
Don't ponder your purpose in life
Your brain is too small
Accept the pecking order and know your enemies
Weed your garden
Look after your children
Sit on them if necessary
Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly
Make a nice nest - share it with friends
Brag on your accomplishments
Protect your nest egg
Test your wings once in a while
Squawk when necessary
As you age, demand respect
Leave a little something for those who care about you
Chase butterflies
