Good morning Friends
tandykins good to read that Pipper has recovered and your new girls are settling in well and laying.
Aaaw Fancy those fairy floss chickens are adorable!!
Anniebee nope, no Elm trees but there is a Maple tree and a Mango tree.
devinandfeather beautiful pics!
So, Day 1 of the IT Workshop is done and dusted .. very exhausting. We picked the quietest two days of the week to have the workshop but that apparently did not stop Windows doing an update which broke Windows 7 computers and the majority of the day was spent on our computers working out a plan of attack, monitoring the queue.
It also did not stop the helpdesk tickets coming in … gunna be a big week next week catching up on all the non-urgent tickets and we still have another day to go.
Wish us luck that today is better/quieter.
Hubby let the girls out at 4pm yesterday and was in the garden with them when I got home at 05:30pm they all came running up the path at the sound of my voice “Mum’s home!!” .. such a lovely welcome, it felt so good and instantly put a huge smile on my face and the bad day was forgotten. I am also so very grateful that I have a hubby who loves the girls nearly as much as I do ... without him they would not have got a free range yesterday and probably not today either.
No bugs in the coop last night or this morning and I did not have any on me either
I cannot thank you enough Fancy for the surface spray tip … not only did it instantly get rid of the bugs, it appears to have averted a repeat of last years’ nightmare. I am still going to strip everything down this weekend and hit it with hot soapy water and a respray when dry, but it appears the crisis has been averted.
I do have a funny story from the workshop. A colleague has a new house and was showing me some pictures … one of the pictures was of a wood fire he has in the lounge. I asked him “do you have wood ash?”. He was a little confused by the question so I asked again if he had wood ash when he cleaned the fire and could I please have it for my chickens? He gave me a strange look and jokingly said “You know chickens do not eat wood ash right?” lol. This attracted the attention of another colleague who also has a wood fire … so, end of story, I am getting some wood ash for the gals dust bath in exchange for a few eggs
