High school.

Scary day but Millie survived with a big smile. I think she’ll be just fine.
Just Gruff’s first full day in school tomorrow and Evie starts back too.

Hit the beach!

It’s the only thing to do when you’ve got impending school days ahead!

Getting ready…

…for big school. We’ll have words about the top thing on Wednesday. I think he’s ready though.

Garden Daleks.

We’ve just watched Dr Who tonight in our garden with a battered old projector and an old gazebo. Daleks in our garden, fabulous!

Getting ready.

Ironing on name tapes. Ironing small uniforms, ironing larger high school uniforms.
Next week all of my children will be in school all day.
All day.

Lions go…

We’ve had a lovely day seeing the lions at the zoo, baby meercats, and lots and lots of lemurs.

An update on the chicks.

Butter and Ninja, our chicks, are nearly sixteen weeks old now. Their little surrogate Mum, Matilda, is still taking the job very seriously and although they are rather quite big now, they’re very happy to follow her around all day. She also protects them from our other hens who will give them a sneaky peck now and again if Mum isn’t watching.
We did think for a bit we have one girl and one boy but as there is no signs of any male feathering on either of them and their combs are still quite pale, so it looks as though we have two lovely girls.
Just a case of waiting for those first eggs which should appear in the next couple of months.

The way he tells them.

Gruff has decided to tell us his own made up jokes. It keeps him amused for hours!

Super squirrel.

Yes the squirrel who decided to play dead on our bedroom windowsill from morning until evening. Who, after some coaching with a strategically placed fishing net, flew down the sheer face of our house and bounded off at full speed along our road, (narrowly avoiding a few cars and a gang of teenagers), before diving into some bushes.
What a rodent.
