Old Girls

Our old girls watching the new arrivals.


On Saturday we went to buy our new chickens, they are all SO sweet and gentle. They’re about 4 months old and should start laying in 2 months time. We got 4 Koek-Koeks, 2 Australorps, 4 Sussex and 2 Lavender Ancona chickens. We were meant to buy 10 but ended up with 12, there were just so many different breeds, I couldn’t resist!


They are all very relaxed, I was dreading introducing them to our older girls but there has been no fighting or ‘hen-pecking’ so far. In previous years we had to separate them but it’s been wonderful this time.

We love sitting and watching them walk around and scratch in the sand…

I’m off to make a cup of tea and then I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon with them.

Makes me happy:)

MTB with Rich


On Saturday, Rich and I went venturing off into the plots along the single track and open areas on our mountain bikes. It was an overcast day, which was perfect for riding. We stopped off to have breakfast at a quaint restaurant along the way.


There were resident cats and chickens walking around, sweet little creatures.


I have finally started wearing riding shoes with cleats, quite a daunting experience but I have only fallen off once because I needed to avoid a car and forgot that my right foot was cleated in! Other than that I really love them, they help to pull me up the uphills, if that makes any sense:)


We rode through this beautiful meadow. We saw plenty of guinea fowl and small birds flying around, it was lovely. I managed to ride 33km on Saturday, (never thought I could ride that far, so yay!!)


Hope you’re having a wonderful week…
