Fashion faux pas and The Muddy Coloured Hen Update

I looked remarkably like Max Wall
I tried my onesie on last night and I must admit that I won't be wearing the bloody thing again....going to the bog in something that has a zip which only reaches down to your sternum seems far too complicated for someone who was needing a very quick slash during Sherlock last night.
Never again

This morning the stormy weather arrived with a vengeance , and the wind woke us up around 5.45. I dragged myself out of bed, and putting on a hastily grabbed coat and hat, I took the dogs out on the lane for a quick wee.
Yes..I never mentioned trousers did I ?
Well I had my long johns on, so I thought it wouldn't matter, given the fact that I thought it was a deathly quiet Sunday morning.
YES, I KNOW ITS FRIGGING MONDAY MORNING NOW!
So apologies to the two early morning commuters who got a good look at my chicken legs in the lane his morning........it wasn't a good way to start the day

Anyhow on a lighter note...I have had a couple of queries about condition of the Muddy coloured Hen. ( the sick little bird that presented herself to me in the dark) Well , I must say , she's looking a whole bit brighter than she did. I have placed her in a run with the silly looking Phyllis Diller, and every day, she is fed with a spare duck egg, which she eats with some gusto. She is still incredibly underweight and a bit shaky, but her eyes are bright and she remains alert and thoughtful
She's doing ok
No I am not choking my chicken
She looks better than I do this morning
Oh BTW a resident of Pennington Gap visited the blog this morning! Whayyyy!

  1. I wear Long Johns in the winter too, but sometimes I forget about them - like when I time my walk to the toilet in the pub, then frantically search for the old boy amongst four different layers of clothing, going in four different directions. So far, so good.

  2. There are many good reason for not wearing a onesie. You speak of one reason, but not the main reason.

  3. Onesies are even harder if you are a woman! I did consider getting one as part of my campaign to update my image but decided against it. I have enough trouble performing simple tasks (we needn;t go into details) without complicating things.
    Hens - I find that if they survive that first spell they often thrive on TLC,
    particularly if they are given a lot of special food (Christmas cake?)

    1. Especially if you live in the NE Scotland where it's blooming freezing! I'd have to bare my top half completely to go to the loo. I'd have pneumonia by the time I got back to bed!!

  5. Didn't realise that Max Wall did a ventriloquist act with a chicken.

  6. I often look like Max Wall when I wear leggings but, mostly they are under the thin (horrible) polyester trousers as the wind gets in/through them otherwise.
    Is there a pic of Phyllis Diller on your blog?

  13. Glad the little hen is a bit better....If you get the weather that we have had you better batten down the hatches! This morning it is -8 degrees....I had all the outdoor cats in on the heated back porch last night...have kicked them out for bathroom runs and will bring them back in very soon.

  15. I've never been able to understand the allure of the onesie either. When I was a bit younger and skiing it was all the rage for women to wear them on the slopes. Horrible when they found themselves in the bog with snowy wet floors and little rooms that were not always heated!!!

  18. Love the name of your chickens..When I was a young girl we had chickens and they all had names.. I hated it when my mom at supper time would say the name of the chicken we were eating. Somedays I cried.. So glad that you are taking such great care of your animals.. I went outside this morning and fed my wild birds in my PJ's.. I live in the country..It was -25~~ very frigid..They were so thankful and I quickly went back inside..Have a tiggeriffic day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

  20. That last photo and comment are making me laugh out loud on the train to Montreal right now...

  21. At least you had something on to cover your lower half. I never understood the attraction to onesies, either. Having to half undress in winter to heed nature's call is a cruel joke.

    Glad to hear the muddy brown hen seems a bit brighter. I'm sure Phyllis is glad for the company, since Rooster Cogburn has left the planet.
