Sadly the last of my original ex battery hens has passed away, we collected 4 very sorry looking hens in April 2009 and there followed quite a steep learning curve for us but soon the hens looked so much better and started to keep us supplied with eggs. Last year 3 of the 4 passed away but dear old Henrietta kept on going and even at the beginning of this week still looked very well but she went downhill very suddenly, it's very quiet without her as she was very noisy and would announce to the world when she laid an egg! the 4 remaining hens are obviously upset as not a single egg has been laid since. We shall really miss her but knowing that she had more than 3 happy free ranging years helps.
Have done a few more wedding layouts, as there is no official wedding album it's all down to my efforts which I admit is making me nervous.Knowing this album is what Vikki and Mathew will show to people means I check and double check everything for fear of a mistake being spotted. Completely daft as no one will pay that close attention I know!
I so want to make a special keepsake for them that it is rather stifling the creative juices mad or what!
Belle is getting well and truly fed up with the crate now and don't we know it! She's booked to see the vet on Saturday the 8th September for the next review and I am literally counting the days, I kid you not! All the other hounds are well and happy and continue to get away with all sorts whilst my attentions and energies are taken up with Belle LOL.
