Wednesday 16/4

I have many lovely friends that I have met online. Mostly I haven't and probably won't get to meet them in real life. I have met Shez live and in the flesh and she is truly lovely and sweet and very funny. Shez is also a great stitcher and generous with her talent. A very pretty tea towel arrived in my mailbox from Shez to cheer me up and it has done just that. Thanks Shez, you made my day.

My poor little chicken from last week is well and truly on the mend. I had no idea she had aspirations to be a weathervane but I do now. That's where I found her yesterday afternoon just before her bedtime. She is still not looking overly pretty but her missing back feathers are growing back and her wounds are healing well.

Her days are spent following us about (the girls are on school holidays so she is receiving lots of attention) and the previously out-of-bounds vegetable garden is her new favourite haunt. I'm not that soft hearted though that I will leave her there alone, she has taken a shine to the radish seedlings and the strawberries. Naughty girl!

I can happily say that my ducks are acting like themselves again. Quacking and carrying on just as ducks should. And they are now venturing outside of their pen during the day like that did before last Monday morning. All is good!

We have had all sorts of weather today. Sunny, windy, overcast and rainy at different times. It's sunny now and I have some work to do. I'm right in the middle of planting wintery things... YUM!

Thanks for visiting
