New Chickens

We were delighted today to go and collect eight new chickens and a large chicken coop kindly given to us by a friend. Thanks to our lovely neighbour who is a man with a van, this was done quite quickly and easily!

Here’s a group shot!

I’m very happy about this, there’s something so comforting about chickens:-)

Baking Biscuits for a friend

We were invited to a friends for dinner last night and it was her birthday on Wednesday so I decided to bake her some biscuits and use my creative leanings to make them extra special!

Wrapped and finished…

Poor Ruth was poorly though so we didn’t go round after all. I’ll pop them round so that she can have them when she’s feeling better.

I made a card too….
