    The chickens stood here like this for ages today. The air was very heavy and they've started laying eggs again after a long, long break and as they're pretty old I think they're feeling a bit tired.

    Thought you'd like to see this little jinbei. Jinbei is a sort of traditional summer clothing in Japan for almost everyone. For bigger people it looks a bit like pyjamas but I love this little romper suit. I haven't shown his face because of privacy but he is delightful. He has the most amazing big deep anime eyes.

    Thank you! I'm going to try that with a couple today. I might as well.

    My veg is doing OK. Most of the kale and an outdoor cucumber disappeared so I put in some mini sweetcorn yesterday. Herbs all doing fine and I have more Chard and herbs and tomatoes in the greenhouse. I've got some horseradish growing in a big tub and it's looking very well but I don't know what to do next. Does the plant keep going and you just dig up some or do you dig it all up and when should I do that anyway? The other question is pak choi, is it a cut and come again type veg or should I just use the whole thing. I think they're good to go.

    Poor fox cub

    I'm glad that you and your friend were there to comfort the little fox. It's sad how few people have empathy for other species.

    Tiny pond

    That's lovely. Looks so cool with the ferns and ivy. I bought a couple of pop up ponds about two years ago and didn't expect much. But the plants thrive, the water is clear there are even newts which surprised me.

    It was about reverse eggs where you make the yellow white and the white yellow.

    When the kids were growing up I didn't have time or room for such fanciful stuff but I dreamt of it. Now I have time and room and all my bedding is white and folded and in sets in the cupboard. I am very tempted by the ribbons but I think that might be a step too far! I never iron bedding, I never see the point when folding does the trick. The house is a1930s semi and they were keen on inbuilt cupboards so one of those makes a nice linen cupboard.

    I like the word housewifery and I like being a housewife. I don't think it's fashionable but I like it. I visited Polesdon Lacey today and just loved this cupboard. Sets of bedding tied up with ribbons made me happy.

    I do love having the house to myself. Even though the kids are adults that still doesn't happen often. Because they all work different shifts it's a sort of social hot bunking. I was looking through photos on my phone and thought I'd share this one of my daughter-in-law in her wedding dress. She looked so lovely and magical.

    Bat boxes

    Any advice about putting up a bat box 🦇 I know they're here, I sometimes see them.

    We've replaced the fence at the end of the garden. OH and the boys did it on what turned out to be the rainiest day this year. I was planning to help but instead I decided to go 1950s style for the day and exercised my right to work hard in the warm, dry kitchen cooking food for my men. We've also got a vegetable patch going with a great raised bed and I've finally sorted out the greenhouse and have salad and seedlings in there instead of dusty, empty pots and rubbish. I expect that at some point I will take photos and post them on here.
