A Happy New Year to you all! 2013 is over.  Not been the greatest of end of year’s on the family front.  Illnesses and accidents involving close family have been very worrying and still are.  Here’s hoping that the New … Continue reading →

Well over a year and I’ve not written a sausage!  I did say it would be a while didn’t I? Well, at popular request, (well – one, thanks Emily), thought I’d give it another go. I can’t go over what … Continue reading →

Tuesday 14 August 2012

exactly what I’ve really been up to over the past month or so.  I’ve certainly been occupied . Primarily I’ve spent a lot of time at the Phyllis Tuckwell Charity Shop in Godalming.  I’ve been volunteering there every Friday afternoon … Continue reading →

Both the girls’ bumper bits have stayed on and there doesn’t seem to be any feather plucking.  After some initial head shaking and beak bashing they seemed to have settled to wearing them and don’t seem to be in any … Continue reading →

Nigel and I have a trip planned to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks.  I have a family tree contact coming over from Australia who has some documentation to give me so we decided to meet up, as it had … Continue reading →

And well do I know it – school holidays and yet again have children climbing up the steep bank in the woods to my back fence, invading our privacy and upsetting the dog.  I politely ask them to go back … Continue reading →

Finally, some lovely warm weather.  I’ve hit the garden big time in a bid to get some seeds going and the garden cleared of the weeds which have accumulated since the autumn. I finally got round to cleaning out the … Continue reading →

Each time I blog I get stuck on the title, hence the above! Anyway at the request of little bro a short update on what has been happening chez Saunders. The snow was fun for a short while and then … Continue reading →

Busy, busy, busy – Christmas got in the way with all the panic buying that that entails.  Thank heavens for the internet – I got very little in the shops – just couldn’t face hacking into Guildford and battling with … Continue reading →

Tuesday 08 November 2011

Well this particular post may be a bit shorter as I’m slightly handicapped by a badly sprained left wrist. October 12th seems to be a bad omen for me.  Last year on the same day I was in A&E getting … Continue reading →

September and another belated blog. Firstly, Herman has been consigned to the freezer in suspended animation.  The family were starting to complain about the bubbling beast hogging the kitchen side, and my waistline about all the cakes, – so he … Continue reading →

Friday 19 August 2011

Completely forgot I had drafted this so, very late in the day, this harks back to July 18th! We have been inundated the past three days.  All good for my garden so I don’t mind.  The poor old chickens are … Continue reading →

Well, the cold finally surfaced – a couple of days of achey stuff but its on its way out now – just a few snuffles still.  Its Nathalie’s turn now. Took the opportunity to crack on with my needle felt … Continue reading →

When animals show any signs of illness, I panic, always imagining the worst.  I’ve never been good with dealing with the death of any of our pets – all reserve goes. Don’t panic though – we have not had to … Continue reading →

Tuesday 28 June 2011

have finally got round to blogging.  My concentration has been elsewhere as I’ve been on a bit of a roll with family tree stuff. In March I picked up from my step mum a bundle of my late dad’s photos … Continue reading →

Looks like Amelia and Gwen are all ‘growed’ up.  We had two large eggs this morning.  Once again, they have done things in tandem which is quite remarkable. The little ones have been averaging around 50g.  The large ones were … Continue reading →

Thursday 16 June 2011

for the chooks to settle into egglaying.  Again, yesterday one soft, one hard egg.  At least the soft one had more of a shell to it this time and I also know who is laying them now – Gwen. Today, … Continue reading →

Thursday 09 June 2011

Forget to blog that Gwen and Mimi laid their first eggs two days ago – perfect little ones in the run and not in the nest box.  How they managed to perform as a duo I don’t know. This morning … Continue reading →

Back to A&E and another couple of days stay in hospital for hubby.  He’s out now, having had a transfusion and is now taking it easy.  So far, so good. The chickens are settling in really nicely.  Our temporary fence … Continue reading →

Nigel thankfully seems to be recovering.  We realised that what he was eating was perpetuating the problem so with a good old Google search we are on track with a bland diet during this particular crisis.  So far it seems … Continue reading →
