Hi there peoples! How ya been? Me? Great!!!
Thanks to being utterly spoilt by these two and cheered up the two
.... I've also been cooked for....
(crispy Salmon on a bed of Spicy Cranberry Couscous)
(creamy poached eggs from our girls - check out that happy yellow yolk dudes!)
... treated like a queen on a couch...
... spoilt by friends and family....
... utterly spoilt!...
Little Ed had to go and get his annual shots at the vet and I went
for acupuncture ... which. was. AMAZING.
So with all this bubbling energy and healing happiness I thought I'd give you
a quick update on how my chicks are going...
We are sure that Fay is a Wellsummer but not too sure whether
Cassandra will be a Barnevelder, a Rhode Island Red or a New Hampshire.
So kinda lucky dip there. Either way though they're all from a brilliant chicken farm called
Roz is still proving to be an amazing Mama Hen. Allowing the chicks to eat first,
summon her to bed well before sunset and even ride on her back!?
(I've been trying to get a shot of that... hilarious)
We are so proud of her because she sacrifices all the best
bits of scrap - no matter what the treat
and she watches over them like a hawk....
... Justin jokes that these two are our "veloceraptors" because they're keen
to get in and make a meal of the chicks (gruseome but true) and we still have to wait
at least another week or two before we can introduce them all together.
I know this is a blurred photo but it cracks me up everytime I look at it.
They really are such curious critters.
So there you have it.
A quick catch up before I head into the garden to give
orders to my boys since I'm still under strict instructions...
(meh that one I can live with)
Ironically I'm still allowed to do the ironing....booo.
We may be off to the chook farm tomorrow to pick up a
a Light Sussex or two (Yay!!) ... but if I'm going to be truthful
that's my idea and I have yet to convince Hubby.
So I wish you all THE BEST weekend ever.
Next post is about my handmade Christmas wreath using vintage book pages.
PS - Apologies for the redundant use of exclamation marks
peoples but when your health returns after such a long struggle
you cannot help but be just! so! darn! happy!!!!!!! :-)
