I'd like to thank Mrs Almost Average over at the Rubbish Diet who has honoured me along with some other excellent sites with a Hen Party Award for inspiring her to keep chickens. I really don't deserve it. And Sam or Ella doesn't either because she is still laying in a mystery spot somewhere on these acres and I can't find it. (The fact that I can't actually tell the difference between my chickens is another sign I don't deserve the award - yes I've named them but no real idea which is which.)
And while I'm on the subject of The Rubbish Diet, I just want to say that I shall miss it. Mrs Almost Average is winding down - she's achieved in a year much more than most blogs ever do. I know she's working on a book - as an ex-editor and current long-suffering-wife-of-an-author, I hope things are going well and wish her (and Mr A) luck, inspiration and a speedy publication.
