Being paid in eggs

Well, I'm hoping to do a bumper post soon with about 2 weeks worth of photos. My laptop is broken (apart from when it decides to work again), so though I've taken the photos, I've not been having a chance to upload them.

I'll put up today's though, then work through the backlog when my new laptop arrives:D.

I do Physics tutoring, and one of the perks of working in the country is the little extras you sometimes get. Tonight along with my pay I was given a dozen hen eggs as well as a goose egg. I've never actually tried a goose egg, but looking forward to using it to do some baking.

It's April already?

April 4th:
It's been lovely weather the last couple of days, so I (along with the rest of the country) optimistically thought we'd get a good run of sunshine. No, it was not to be, the rain's back. Ah well. This is the view from my bedroom window.

April 3rd:
I have this wall decoration in my kitchen. I made it a couple of years ago using a class by BubblyFunk as part of the Birthday cybercrop on UKScrappers. It makes me smile each time I look at it.

April 2nd:
We went to Edinburgh for the afternoon. The day did not start well, with Peter first taking the wrong car to the station (we needed the car seat to be at the station at the end of the day), then realising that he now also had the buggy. Then Amy and I missed the train up to Glasgow. Luckily one of her friends stays just across from the station so we could pop in for 40 minutes and wait for the next one.

It was all worth it in the end, Edinburgh's a great place. I love the Scott Monument, hence this photo of it. Amy also worked her charm to get some little Lindt bunnies from the lovely ladies in Jenners.

April 1st: After last month's photo of the buds on my flowering currant, here's the follow-up. All the teeny flowers are opening up.
