Poor Seamus —

gets a welcome ‘ere ear —

I had the bright idea that after a week based indoors that Seamus would be ready for a night out fastened in Loki’s kennel where he could see and hear what was going on around him but be safe from nocturnal prowlers.

About 4.00am I heard him howling from below my window and brought him indoors where his main interest appeared to be ‘gimme food!’

Closer inspection on returning from her morning walk by ‘she who knows best’ showed a badly torn ear to add to his catalogue of scars!

I guess he had fallen asleep with his head against the wire grill and a passing native said ‘Hello’ with a sharp claw!

Duck Eggs – Anyone?

So why don’t we eat them?

If I’ve had one in the past I can’t remember having done so. I have heard dismissive remarks such as ‘can be strong tasted’ or ‘are an acquired taste’ but I was gifted these bonnie eggs as a welcome to our new home in the country, so I felt duty bound to do something with them.

Having first hard boiled the eggs, I found it easy to break them out of their shells before mashing them in Mayo with salt and pepper.

Served on toast with a splodge of Cranberry & Port Sauce I happened to find in the fridge, probably from Christmas ’22, or even Xmas’s past but there was no fur on it and formed the icing on the cake at a breakfast fit for a King 🥴😋👍
