  1. How did that happen Didn't he go on school French trips and stash it to come home with, in the bad old days when you could only buy it on holiday Perhaps it was much better out of reach though
  2. Awwwww. Bless you Chick Wiggle. I'll make it up to you in hugs next Tues xxxxx
  3. Yes fleet is on the list!! Loads of Chicken people nearby I really hate to admit it, but having the girls under house arrest for just 3 weeks has completely transformed the garden. Oooops OH is really enjoying the I told you so dance grrrr Oh we'll, fingers crossed it sells quickly and they can have their freedom again
  4. That sounds so awful!!!! It's disgraceful what can happen to our elderly these days. OH's grandad has Altzeimers and he is getting to the "Can't be left alone stage". The gas was disconnected from his house last week as he switched on the hob and then wandered off for a fag!!! He keeps complaining that the paper shop is always shut, turns out he has been trying to get his morning paper at 2 and 3 in the morning!! Found very good support up here and OH's mum gets some money now as she cooks all his meals and checks on him a few times a day. He has a place booked in a home for people with dementia, but it's not built yet! I really hope you get things sorted soon. It's very difficult. Take that agency to the cleaners!!! Is there any chance of the charity helping with carers so your dad can go away? I know that OH's mum has organised for people to come in 3 times a day when she has a holiday? Good luck with it all. Xxxxx
  5. Thanks for all the good luck guys. So nice to know that there are chicken people everywhere Just taking a break from more packing, sorting and boxing So much bric-a-brac and books, a charity lady is coming to our house this pm to pick it all up. And we've only done 2 1/2 rooms so far!! How do we collect this stuff!! Chooks are all settled in to their temp smaller pens, but they are giving me evil eyes as they are not allowed on the lawn again until we have a firm offer. I can't believe how fast the grass grows with no chickens on it!
  6. You Yorkshire contingent have become the rocks in my life. I will miss you soooooooo much. Thank goodness for Omlet, Facebook and texts, then I can still talk to you all every few days
  7. Oh yeah Tesco vouchers have already paid for our ferry journey this summer
  8. Yes, financially it's definitely harder to go south than come north, but taking into account all the travel costs and hours that hubby spends driving at the moment, we figured that it must be worth the risk. Priorities are right!!! Got to get the chooks sorted 1st We dropped the huge WIR last weekend with the very kind help of Laurmurf and all her clan. The girls are all in the smaller breeding pens now, so that we can transport the big run and some of the housing down to the field. Why didn't I just stop at 3 chickens? :lol:
  9. Thought I'd break the news on here that hubby and I are leaving good old Yorkshire as soon as our house is sold. In typical style, we haven't got a home to go to yet, will just rent something, but a corner of a field for the Chooks is already sorted Looking near the Hampshire/Surrey border, Alton/Odiham/Fleet area. I wondered if any omleteers were around that area at all?
  10. Hi there. Here is a clearer picture of the wonderful blanket you all made
  11. What beautiful gifts. How special. He really is a lucky little fellow.
  12. Oohhhh. What did you get? Is that blankey one of them?
  13. Awwww. Sorry. There was a mix up about dates. We might be seeing him next weekend now
  14. Already re-dyed guys Laurie and I may be baby visiting again tomorrow. I'll see if we can get some more pics
  15. It's not supposed to be red Stupid hair, I'm trying to back to blondey-brown after being chocolate-brown but the red pigments won't shift!! Glad you think it looks ok in the interim though, thanks
  16. Laurie still having phone problems. So she's sent me her photos to put on. I get the fabulous job if posting pictures of myself
  17. Yes Sha it was a kit. An American one I think. I googled birth samplers with chicks or chickens and found it. Could not resist Laurie gave them a gorgeous baby grow. Wish I had snapped a shot of it, it said Free Range across it
  18. Ok ok!!! Went to poultry club after baby visit so only just had chance to put photos on Karina & Hen & Joe Close up of Joe Aunty Laurie having a cuddle My gift to them. One of the few crafty things I have ever finished
  19. Picture hen Picture . Or should I take 1today
  20. So so happy for you both. Can't wait to come for cuddles soon
  21. I don't think Hen has seen this yet, but she's due on the 27th March
  22. We get rats, we are next to farming fields that grow grain so it will always happen I use the loose poison, but put it in little plastic bags and tie the tops. I shove these down the rat holes. They take these bags back to the nest. Then you "get" the whole group and not just the foragers
  23. He is beautiful. What a fine fellow, and looks quite the dandy I always think that for posh boys, names starting with Mr or Lord sound good. Lord Leonard?
