"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

We Need To Talk About Dalila…


While I am happy a hen has adopted us,
Dalila is positively delighted.

But is her joy maternal or culinary…

    • The hen has barely been with us one week, but that’s already one week too long to sit comfortably in a curry!

    • It was completely unplanned but now she’s adopted us it’s enormous fun!

      I’ve just given her some breakfast – a handful of yesterday’s leftover boiled rice. She really likes it.
