All 4 kids are off school, and we have been spending time as a family.
We went and saw the baby lambs at Broadlees Farm in Dover last Tuesday. The children really enjoyed cuddling the baby lambs, and We even got to see one being born!
The chicks are growing well. They are at that gangly half-feathered stage where they look awkward and mangy, but they are beautiful nonetheless.
And I sneaked some more eggs into the incubator. They should be hatching on Saturday!
I've also been doing some fixing around the garden. Hubby helped me finish off the boarding around the base of chickenopolis and filled it with bark chippings. I didnt get any pictures of it though, because i was busy repairing and painting these planters that my parents gave to me a few years ago. I neglected them and they were really on their last legs, but now after new sills, a few nails and some wood treatment, they will last many more years!
My friends husband has kindly offered to work with me at my allotment this year, as i am finding it a little overwhelming now i am back at work. He roped in my friends kids as well, who did a fab job of getting the place ship shape. I have these "in progress" pics, i need to get some better ones of how everything is going. They have been a godsend!
So what has everyone been up to over the holidays?
