Saturday was quite a busy day here in the Nesbitt household! Jon had to go to the workshop first thing so I pottered about at home with daily chores but at 11am we had to drive to Thirsk Auction Centre to drop something off for one of our customers.
Once a month a “Fur and Feather” auction takes place and our customer has a stall in the farmer’s arket selling his award winning pies, so once we had spoken with Andrew Voakes we had a look round the auction. There were lots of chickens, ducks and geese in cages awaiting auction. There were some amazing breeds which I have never seen before. Jon did say it would be a good place to buy some goslings when we are ready! This sounded good to me.
Home to get changed and head out on the motorbike, such a lovely day we have to make the most of them!
We headed up to Scarborough, to a farmshop we had spotted on the Cloughton Road. We had lunch, a late one at 3pm. Jon had homemade chicken and leek pie, I went for pea and ham soup, with lovely crusty bread! It was delicious!
After we had eaten we had a walk round the various buildings and saw some very interesting pigs!
The cockerel took great pride in strutting his stuff!
We came home via Pickering and when we walked through our gate the hens were sunbathing. They love to find a place where they can spend a couple of hours soaking up the sunshine!
We had a BBQ and spent the best part of the evening sitting on the patio. The patio goes across the back of the house and up the side of the lounge, so we can always find a sun spot!
Once the sun went down the night was chilly so we continued with the gin & tonics inside!
