It's been such a long time since I last posted, I am sorry, it's just that there has been such a lot happening including returning back to work, having to venture back into the big wide open world!!! What with the credit crunch..don't you just get fed up with hearing about that? Prices have gone up and everyone is feeling the pinch, so we have just got to face up to it I guess and cut back on a few things or at least just be a little more careful with spending than we were a few months ago!
Well I guess Autumn is finally here, the grass is really wet and the air in the mornings is really damp and misty, although not when I first get up at 5.30am! It is pitch Black!! I never was a morning person, but good old hubby has rows of cups of caffeine waiting for me in the mornings to try and get me moving into action! It isn't too bad though as I finish work at 2.30pm so still have a little of the afternoon to catch up with a few things before eating our evening meal, followed with a glass of wine and then lighting the fire ... to fall straight to sleep as soon as I curl up on the sofa! Sometimes that is sooo annoying, especially when there is something that you would like to watch on the TV (not very often I have to say!!) but sometimes I just cannot keep my eyelids open!!
Do you like my new Rocking Chair? I originally purchased it to Restore and Paint in a Farrow and Ball paint and pop it on to my Web site but I have decided that it looks rather homely in my lounge! So its mine to keep!! Sorry!!
I have been reading some lovely blogs in the last few days that I have come across, especially those that have a story connected regarding keeping Chickens, as I have decided that I want to have some of my own Chickens and hopefully some Ducks! Thank you to Diary of a Tinyholder and Vintage Pretty and Shabby for inspiring me to go ahead and get some!
Lots of planning though ahead! A Home is needed for them, along with a run and feed and feeders...oh my goodness the list! What I would really like is this...
But I am afraid that to start with, their new home will be...
I will make sure that it is Fox protected and warm and safe, one day they too can be upgraded to the penthouse!
We have also been to a fab wedding of my Cousins, it was held at Cameley Lodge in Somerset, WOW what a Beautiful setting!! We all had a fab day, it is so nice to go to the venue and not have to travel around to the Church, Reception, Hotel etc etc, all held under one roof is so much easier, the brides Flowers were Beautiful, take a peak!
More to come in the next few days!!
