Sorry for vanishing of the face of the earth..................internet problems. Lovely BT quickly despatched all new filters, hub and wires within 48 hours of the fault being reported and here I am after what seems like SO many phone calls and line tests............back in action.
I've really missed reading all the lovely blogs that I dip into each day with my morning coffee in one hand and my toast in the other. It's lovely being part of this blogging world, I'm SO glad to be back in action. You don't realise how much you've come to rely on the internet until it goes away.
Tonight we are off for our Henkeeping Course in lovely sunny Suffolk, we can't wait. I've wanted to keep chickens for years, while my boys were little I had a little veggie patch in our council house back garden in the lovely village of Askam in Furness and we were almost self-sufficient in salad crops, veggies and strawberries, but the council would not allow chickens!! So I put my dreams on hold and now twenty odd years later I'm finally on the last leg towards getting my little feathered egg-producing ladies.
Hubby likes to do everything properly, so first it's the course, then it's the masterminding and building of 'Chicken World', this will be no small shed with run, it will be state of the art palatial chicken quarters, fox-proof, easy clean and designed to withstand all disasters. Then we will be vanishing on our (well-deserved) holiday, and then, finally, it will be time to get the chickens ....whoo hoo, at last my dream come true......... (oh, and then Lovely Hubby has booked us on another Chicken Course for all things medical etc!!).
Have a lovely weekend.
