Well all that beautiful frost and sun from last week turned into never-ending rain! - Finally today it has stopped (for a while anyway) and the sun is peeking out form behind clouds. The garden is soggy, and the chickens are fed up!
Talking of the chickens - do you remember me saying about a few bullying problems? - Well we put 2 new perches in their run, up at around 5ft. They can get to them in stages by flying up to the roof of their nestboxes, and it seems to have done the trick. The older 2 Welsummers love being up there, and the youngsters do go up every now and again, but there seems to be a pre-agreed "no fighting on the perches" rule! So harmony is restored.
Saturday in Swindon was just the best fun! - It was so great to meet friends and chat and laugh and knit! Everyone had taken knitting and we sat in a big circle knitting and talking. Franney had not only brought knitting, but apparently everything bar the kitchen sink........ she did a proper "show n tell", which was pretty cool it must be said!! There was a bit of spindle spinning, and some charity raising (in the form of an auction and a raffle), a fabulous lunch cooked by Grannysmith, and a surprise visit via video link of one of our illustrious forum leaders - Jacquie, who joined us for afternoon tea and cake (or in Utah, where she is, an early morning cuppa!). It was really such a great day and heartfelt thanks goes to Grannysmith for organising it.
Well that's about it for now. I'm afraid it's all going to get a little bit quiet here now for a while. Christmas needs sorting out (snuck up on me a bit!) and I have another part time job (much better this time - working for people I have known for a long time who know how I work and are happy for me to pick and choose my hours and work at home :) ) Hope you're all better organised than I am! x
