Final photos from the visit of the cousins. Sensing that Jack would appreciate some time with boys his own age, we spent a couple of hours on Friday with the Goodares.  It appears 8-year-old boys primarily communicate through the medium of football and pay wrestling – who knew? We also got to see how big their lamb has grown and admire their one-day-old chicks.

We’re thinking of buying a few of the next clutch as they include cream legbars which lay the most gorgeous creamy-green eggs. Hopefully we will have built a coop by the time they are ready. Robyn is rearing and selling the chicks to raise funds for a school trip to Morocco and has already successfully reared a brood of five ducklings. These ones are Black Jersey Giants – the largest chickens you can get – and her next batch will include the smallest breed!

House developments this week? Not much. Progress has been slow but steady on the playroom and we now have a window seat, thanks to Dad, and three garden swings – two made of salvaged items, like the tyre and an old log that was being thrown away from a dismantled adventure playground.
