It's definitely here, well its in the fens if nowhere else, its been here for about 2 weeks now and I'm loving it. Yes, the Sun has arrived. The weather has been good since Easter, almost too good for the farmers, they now want a decent rainfall, but they're never happy at this time of year. All the flowers have started to bloom and the veg is getting stronger in their little beds and the tadpoles have grown the tiniest legs I've ever seen. It been years since I've had a good look at a tadpole and now we've got the pond I think I'm more interested than the kids!!
I'm now Godmother to my adorable little niece Caitlin. We had a lovely weekend in Thorne for the service and she was perfect throughout, no tears and smiles for the cameras when needed.
We collected 9 rescue hens last Wednesday, 3 were for us and 6 for some friends who have started to keep hens too. Unfortunately when we checked on them Thursday morning we'd lost 5 during the night. We've had rescue hens before and never lost any, I was a little bit sad that the poor things had been through the trauma of the rescue and being re-homed only to die on their first night of freedom. The other 4 are now happily living with my friend and her boys.
