Give a chicken a strawberry…

…and stand well back, it gets nasty! STRAWBERRY

Here comes the sun.

I look back on these posts in the winter with longing. Bonnie just lives the moment, happy in the sun.

Mini eggs.

Well the young hen who laid one of the biggest eggs I have ever seen decided to have a break from laying for a bit, (I don’t blame her).
She has resumed laying but has taken a step forward for chicken emancipation and decided I can only have tiny little minuscule eggs from now on.
They are so cute though, not sure how many I’d need to make a cake. Any guesses?

Rio.

This is Rio, my kid’s school mascot. Rio is a blue raven and is teaching the school kids about their rights as children.
I promised Rio he could make an appearance on Doodlemum as he has told me how well travelled he is!

Grassy.

Nothing like a play in the park after school.

Blanket.

Crocheted by Grandma, this is blanket. It is Bonnie’s special thing.
Blanket gets arranged lovingly around her crate by Bonnie to make a handy pillow, (yes my dog likes a pillow).
Blanket is always brought out when we return home to great us.
Blanket smells, of dog.
But blanket is loved.

RIP Butter.

Evie discovered Butter’s body on Sunday morning. She was outside and showed no sign of attack, she’d even laid her egg. Only just a year old too. Poor Evie was really upset (and it was one of the females we’d hatched out last year).
She’ll be missed.

This mummy can…

…run 13.1 miles in two hours and thirty two minutes! It was quite a warm sunny day for Swansea so I’m very happy with my first attempt at a half marathon! Having Myles and the whole family shouting for me at the finish line was very emotional and lovely!
Thank you for all the messages of support, I carried them round with me with my little stash of jelly beans and water.
Thank you to all who kindly donated, it means so much, off to hobble over to the kitchen to make packed lunches for tomorrow now.
