Sunshine and foodie competitions

Just heard from Andy the Cheese that he is one of five who have made it through to the next round of Young British Foodie.  Congratulations!!!!  However, the judges need to whittle them down to just three finalists - so, cross your fingers everyone ...  Andy has also been asked to make some cheese for the events dinner, so he will be coming to collect his milk this week and is going to meet Footsie in person.  She is VERY excited about this ... the prospect of a new person coming especially to visit her is a thrill.  Especially if that new person brings bananas with him.  Andy has been briefed about Footsie's requirements :-)

You will be pleased to know that young Jake the Peg is doing well and is learning to hop about with his plastered leg.  Hasn't stopped him eating at all, which is a good thing.  He is larger than the babies he is sharing with so they all think that it's great fun to jump on him when he sits down.  Fortunately, he doesn't seem to mind.  I think he's quite enjoying the attention from everyone, epecially when he gets the teats all to himself at feeding time!

So, the weekend weather was MUCH better than last week and Balham market went with a swing.  A lovely lady called Lucy came to see me at the end of the market to do an interview for a book she is writing about green spaces and living simply in the city of London.  She produces a wonderful magazine called 'Lost in London' which was launched at the end of 2010 and is aimed at country-loving city dwellers.  It is a beautiful publication and has the most wonderful photos in it as well as really interesting articles.  She will be coming to visit the goats with her photographer very soon!
