It is Blooming Cold!

What on earth is going on with this British weather? We are almost at the end of March and have seen no sign of spring and this morning I awoke to another smattering of snow and escaped chickens! I knew something wasn't quite right as Max was back and forth with a worried look upon his face. I had a quick search as I thought that perhaps there was a puddle of even a pile on the floor!

It had been so windy that the latch on the run had opened and there was the girls clucking loudly and running amock around the garden. Matilda was head down and arse up in the soil of my fruit border where I have one scarggly tayberry bush and a small prickly gooseberry bush, it all looks so sad and desolate in the garden.

When I opened the door the girls were trying to come in, cheeky little things.  I grabbed the bowl of scraps and they all came flapping down the garden with me and are all now safely back in the run tucking into a feast.

It has been another busy week. I have been preparing for the opening of Wigglywoo's Craft Emporium on Monday. I am just enjoying a quick coffee in peace before heading back over to carry on with arranging and sorting out the warehouse.

I am at a craft fair tomorrow, which will be my last one for a while and hopefully I will be able to get out into the garden once more and get on with one of my other great passions of growing my own vegetables.

I hope you all have a great weekend, until next time X


  1. You're right, it is blooming cold. Snow again here, and it's still coming down, spring is definitely postponed this year. Good luck with the opening of your craft emporium on Monday, I hope it all goes well.

    1. Hiya Jo, thankfully the snow has all melted, still a chill in the air, spring has most surely been bypassed!

      Thanks it went well.

  2. Yes it is very cold. I love reading about your chickens I hope to have some of my own in the next 12 months.

    1. Hiya I just wish it would warm up a bit so we might be able to grow something edible! I bet you can't wait to have some hens, they are such funny creatures.
