New Additions to our Family

No Isabelle hasn't arrived yet but hopefully she will be born over the weekend as her mum is going into hospital on Sunday morning to be induced.  But we do have some new additions to our family today.

2 Years ago 6 lovely ladies came to live with us and have given us a wonderful supply of eggs ever since.  Every now and again one of them gets a little clucky (broody) but our latest broody girl was worse than usual so in the absence of a "husband" we purchased her some fertile eggs to nest on.

 3 weeks later and we have some baby chicks born this afternoon

So far we have 3 new additions - They are so cute !!

What do you have planned this weekend?  I have the grand babies coming to stay whilst their little sister is being born. So not much sewing will get done - They like to help in the kitchen so we might try to get some baking done and maybe bottle some of the apricots which are starting to ripen on our trees.

Do you like my new scented flower buds that I just bought?  I wish you could smell them - They smell divine.

And this gorgeous scented ceramic rose diffuser - I have never seen them before.

It is beautifully formed isn't it?

Oh .... I almost forgot to tell you that I have a new little friend coming to stay with me - I will tell you more once she arrives early next week.  So wherever you are have a wonderul weekend and I hope you get time to do what you love.  I am hoping to make a start on this new stitchery - Fingers crossed anyway.

Love and Hugs,

Fee XX

When you said week-end, I had to go and look at your date, is it the week-end already?

My husband loves to raise chickens. He misses doing that.

The baby chicks are so darling!! Enjoy your time with the grands, dear Fee - I love your roses, what lovely things, I've never seen them before either. I can't wait to meet your new friend, something tells me it might be a sewing machine???? That would be fun!
