Tuesday, May 8


This morning I was really pleased to see the hens  enjoying a dustbath together. From the picture I worked out that all of the hens were together with Ernest. From time to time they seem to isolate one member of the group, often Bev the black one, but all seems well and they are producing 7 eggs a day.


We have had a great bank holiday weekend and managed to get out on the motorbike most days. As ever, Jon returned back to work today and the weather is glorious.

Yesterday he managed to get the lawns cut. We have  had  so much rain of late it was impossible to cut the lawns so this was a great relief.

I am preparing for a Wedding Fayre this Sunday so am very busy. Jill is coming along so I am sure there will be lots to share next time. Right now I need to keep my head down and get creating!

Once the Wedding Fayre is over it will be time to start the serious preparations for the Isle of Man!
We leave for the TT on Friday June 1st!

  3. Oh my, as the days lengthen and we see the sun more often, I'm getting so wired at the thought that in a bit over 3 months I'll be THERE!!! Whoopee! I have now adopted the British expression "bliss" for when I like something! :D
