Chickens and flapjacks
Long time no see! So far so good! I am still very happy, feel relaxed here in the Forest of Dean and enjoy each and every day. Sometimes a feel a tiny little bored but there are always books to read and things to do and explore. I hope everything is alright with all of you as well.
My 4th working week will start tomorrow, it goes really fast. The work I did previous weeks vary from labelling juice bottles, cleaning the yurt and show around guests on the farm to harvesting loads of potatoes and onions, and invite people for a centre gathering next month. Every day is different and very useful. The farm managers and Growers I work with are really, really warm and do take good care of me, which is nice and makes me feel at home.
Yesterday was a very nice day because me and one of the Growers went to Monmouth to pick up 6 rescue chicken. They built a henhouse last week and adopted 6 free-range chicken, they look quite happy now! However, it is very sad to see these chicken have many wounds and less feathers. Sometimes you still see them picking each other because they are used to do that when they had less space at the farm they lived before (‘BUY ORGANIC!’). After that, we played some music and I could finally sing again! We made a delicious blueberry-chocolate flapjack and had some beers and cider. Life isn’t that bad!
I am looking forward for coming Friday because my family will come to visit me for a few days. I will have some extra days of to explore the area a bit more which is cool because it is so beautiful here!
A short story this time, I am sorry but I have to go now and prepare the yurt again for other guests coming this afternoon.
Lots of love, Yanthe

Leuk te horen dat het goed gaat. Vanmorgen met Rens gefietst.
Monmouth (USA) was de plaats waar J-W naar high school ging.

Goed idee van die kippen. laat ze maar lekker los rennen daar maar pas op voor de vos. Of heb je die daar niet. Ik zou er ook een haan bij zetten dan kun je ook eieren gaan verkopen.
Tot vrijdag. Dit weekend gaan we een beetje rondkijken. Gloucester, Monmouth en een paar wandelingen die ik op het web heb gevonden.
