It has been a number of years since I have been on here, but good to see some old familiar names still. I was on her as TAJ, ran intro hen courses in Cheltenham, bred my own hens, etc. Oh how things have changed for me over the last 4 years, first my step-dad was will, leading to my mum going into a home (dementia) and having to sort and sell their house, he then died, 6 month later my mum died (...the court case against the carehome is now coming to an end), then aged 56 my husband died without warning from a heart attack. Since then my mother-in-law and step mum have also died.
So what about the animals? one of my two cats died two days after my husband died and 7 months on the fox killed all 8 of my chickens, all most a year ago now.
So to say life has been a bit of a struggle over the last few years is a bit over an understatement! My life has been kept busy over the last year by having a Guide Dog puppy to socialise and bring up - he is soon to go into formal training. I still have my cube and two classics, plus incubator, etc so I haven't said no to more chickens, but it was something we did together, not sure how many eggs one person can eat!
