Is Spring in the Air?

Good afternoon bloggers/blogettes. Just sitting at the computer at the inlaws out in the sticks - there are squrriels and blue tits, chaffinch and robins, and even a pair of long tailed tits busy at the bird feeders. Sorry I have suddenly gone all Bill Oddie!! Its a lovely day in London though, the snow has melted and we're into double figures temperature wise - all feels very spring like and v exciting that the warm weather is on its way!!
Have got to go and help check the sheep later - they are very pregnant - lambing start in a few weeks time, I have a feeling I may be roped in a bit more hands on this time round.
Last year I got to feed a couple of the babes that needed a little extra help which was so cool, not sure I am up to helping deliver them just yet!
Had a lovely valentines weekend, a cosy meal in with some bubbly and then watched some CSI and Numbers. Yes I know thats a bit dull but it was good just to relax. We'd been at the pub to watch the rugby and took some of our homemade sausages down for half time that went down a storm - they will be better next time tho!
Then a fab long walk on Sunday over hills through woods and then round a huge hidden resevoir. Have done it before and both times we got lost just at the field with a massive scary bull!
Still was good to get fresh air and helped me sleep on the train home - once i had rearranged my living arrangements for the night as left my keys up north and got over the cold sweat of testing how far our ford focus could go on empty! All very amusing!
I am heading off for a short nap before becoming the small holder for a hour! Then its tucked up with roast pork a glass of wine and the Last King of Scotland on DVD.
Don't forget you can still donate to Chris and Rach climbing Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief - go to www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/chrismoyles to see how!

Lots of love

Sausages and Snowboarding

Post categories:

Aled | 13:39 UK time, Monday, 9 February 2009


Hello - well its back to a Monday again so its my turn to blog. What a miserable Monday it is too. Chucking it down with rain here so really not much option but to go to bed and hope it all goes away.
I've just changed my bed sheets so can't wait for my afternoon nap- nothing beats getting into crisp bed linen!
Had a very exciting weekend - there was loads of snow up north - even enough to get the snowboard out - was wicked - not really steep enough for jumps and stuff and had to be a bit careful as it was quite busy up there! Its my new photo on my twitter page. Something I have become completely obsessed with! All good fun for now will try and reign it in a bit so I don't go competely mental!

On a food front I made my own sausages for the first time. Was hilarious fun - and also quite grim - properly stinking when mincing it all up - filling up the sausage skins definitely my favourite bit - did look utterly wrong on every level mindu.



We made 3 flavours pork and leek, pork and stilton and pork and mustard - the latter being the best. Also we may have put too much rusk in - could be a work in progress to get perfection I reckon but not giving up yet!
Now going to decide what to have for lunch - jacket potato or soup? Hmmm

Don't forget to keep donating to Chris and Rachel's kilimanjaro climb - we've done amazing well so far - just follow the links on www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/chrismoyles.

Lots of love

 Rachel

Afternoon bloggers,

I write this from a very snowy London town. I don't think I've ever seen so much snow here, it's mad. Everyone has resulted back to being either 10 years old and having snowball fights or being 80 years old and worrying about how they're going to get to home! Anyway, I'm trying to look on the positive side, it's all good training for Chris and myself for Kilimanjaro.

Gary Barlow joined us on the show today, which was nice. He also played the piano, which was nice.

Here he is with Chris telling you how to donate for their climb of Kilimanjaro in aid of Comic Relief:

I'm off to make a snowman.

Matt

It's snowing!

Carrie | 12:43 UK time, Monday, 2 February 2009

Wow I cannot believe how much it has snowed - its so awesome. Usually its us sitting in the studio getting well jealous of all you lot with snow and London never gets any.
Its gone properly bonkers - no buses at all - tubes up the swanny. The only day I can possibly get away with wearing Moon boots to work!
Think its going to be a case of walking home - Mr Carrie is supposed to be coming down from Yorkshire today but no idea if thats going to happen or not!
Trains certainly not working right now! Boo i was going to play proper wife, cook supper and everything.
It seems none of my mates have gone to work today - looks like its going to be snowball fight city in a certain area of south west london!!!
Fingers crossed we'll all be able to get into work tomorrow cos there's meant to be more snow tonight!

Just before I go want to say well done to all the team for doing Snowdon! Looked totally fantastic!
Make sure you go and support Chris as he raises money for Comic Relief and the Killy climb!

Lots of love

Carrie xxxx
