It’s “Are You Ok?” Day today in Australia. Pity this wasn’t around in 2008. Our lovely daughter, Miriam, aged 24, was lost to suicide late September 2008. She had been suffering depression but, because she lived away from home, and … Continue reading
Picked them up last Saturday morning and have been having fun watching them. They are quite entertaining. For the first two days they stayed in the chook house and wouldn’t come out, unless I stood in the house with them. But now they’re getting the idea that they are allowed out of the house (they were in small pens at the place where we got them) and can wander around in their large pen whenever they want.
But if they hear a noise they’re not familiar with, they all go scurrying back into their chook house, often with wings flapping and clucking (more like cheeping at the moment). They are aged between 8-14 weeks and we have 2 x Rhode Island Reds, 2 by Australorpes (one appears to be a X), 1 x Gold laced Wyandotte and 1 x Plymouth Rock. So far the Rock appears to be the dominant one in the group. But they all seem to get along.
Could be 8-10 weeks at least before we start getting eggs. I’m sure we’re going to have lots of fun watching them and getting to know their personalities.

Pretty much since we shifted here, I wanted to get chooks so we could have fresh eggs. I wanted to bake again, grow veges and fruit, and put in a fish pond. Well, we’re getting there. The vege garden is … Continue reading
Can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted here. I have recovered from my broken leg, although I had a rod in my leg now and it prevents me from kneeling on my left knee comfortably. But I am … Continue reading
It was a dull grey Monday morning 12th December but I still chose to go out for a walk. I usually do to get my regular exercise and hope to see new things for my camera. I chose to visit … Continue reading
I hadn’t thought about this before. Regular readers will know that we have a special thing in our family – three generations with a birthday on the same day. My husband, our son-in-law and his son/our grandson. But what I … Continue reading
Thank you to all those people who ask about Graham often. It’s so nice to know that so many of you are thinking of him and wondering of his progress, and praying for him too. He’s been making good progress … Continue reading
It’s almost 3 years since we lost our beloved Mirri. The first year dragged by and I lived in total fear that year. Fear for what our future held, fear for how my husband was coping, fear for our whole … Continue reading
