Didn't go to bed until late - well early this morning after a long time in the car asleep, Luke was in no rush to go to bed, and so I made the most of it.

Up bright and early today, I was greeted by lovely sunshine and the garden is radiating with different shades of yellow from the now fully opened daffodils and narcissi everywhere. A great way to start the day.

The chooks were keen to be out and about scratching, and I mixed up a new bucket full of their feed - so they had to wait patiently (as if) for a few minutes before I took out their food containers. They took one look at them and got back to the serious business of heads down, petticoats up, and the dig down to Australia.

I had spend some time raking all the wood bark back into the craters they had made, but they soon flicked it back out in disgust.

One early morning egg from KoKKo and huge one, but not a record breaker!

I am sitting in the lounge and the sun is streaming through the patio doors onto an arrangement of daffodils in a lime green pot - an dsome of them are opening - and the way that they are positively glowing in the sunshine - like the sun itself is wonderful.

Better get going on the breakfasts while there are still sleepy heads in bed - it will soon all change when my darling little grandson wakes up. Can't wait to see that wonderful smile, and those gorgeous big eyes that make you go gooey at the knees.

Lots to do - so really have to drag myself away - will try and catch up with you all here this evening.

In the meantime, I hope that the sun shines on you and that you have a good day too.

The egg total today is 5 so I have a surplus of them at the moment but that will be rectified when they get distributed amongst the family.

Had a great family day walks around the village, having a baby to look after, and fun with the chickens who have been particularly entertaining and on their best behaviour.

That's all today folks - back to the family.


  1. have a good time with the baby.

  2. Happy Easter to you and yours!
