This plump goose and I don't have have the best relationship. I feel goosie has attitude problems.
This week I had one night when I was out in the cold for half an hour trying to get this goose to go to bed. Foxes are always ready for an easy meal and as much as I have not too loving feelings towards this animal I would be very upset if we lost him to the foxes.
Our son, who has long left home, was given this goose when he was in primary school - so add secondary school, uni years and now working. That all adds up to a number of years we have had goosie.
Next week we have 3 Farm stay students coming to stay with us for 3 days. I have been cleaning and planning. As the weather has been rather wet I am planning farm and inside activities. This time I have girls so if the weather is wet I plan to show them what happens with the wool - from washing fleece and dyeing to spinning, knitting and felting. Hope we get at least one pleasant day. Food has been planned also. We will have a BBQ if weather is kind. Always I plan for time in the kitchen making lamingtons - this I would say is the favourite activity. Think it must be about 20 years we have had students coming to stay and by now I have the menu sorted.
