Cluckingham Palace

I am so excited. We have livestock on our farmlet.
Yes! I am classing hens as livestock. My wonderful friend Dee of sew-funky gave us her beloved, egg laying chickens when she moved house.
We built the girls a predator proof coop and named it 'Cluckingham Palace'.
Then we thought the hens needed royal names so they are Fergie, Eugenie and Beatrice.Ahhhh. The good life.

Favourite Thing Friday

I just love him. How can you not. I would so love a day out shopping with him.

Now you can get your very own style consultation on line. Just go

Dads visit

My dad came over from Oz for a week. There was a family get together to celebrate what would have been my granddad's 100th birthday, had he still been alive.

It was rather exciting as we hadn't seen Dad (Morfar to the grand kids) in 9 years.

He finally got to meet Boodles.

And our two new additions.

Until we see you again. xxx

Mother to a teen

I am now officially the mum to a 13 year old today.
I have been a step mum to teens and so was able to delude myself that I was still young and hip until now.
We have a few birthday traditions.
1. Open presents with the family on Mum and Dads bed.
2. Mum (me) makes the birthday child's choice of breakfast for the family.
This morning it was French Toast.
3. When the kids turn 13 they get to go on a Daddy date to a restaurant of their choice.
Ashlee chose to have dinner at Rainbows End. Rainbows End is a theme park. Clever girl for thinking outside the square.
Button says it was the best birthday ever.
Hugs, kisses and lots of love, mum. xxx
Happy birthday, Button.
