Baby Chicks and such...

Four new babies hatched out a few days ago...

Wotcha doin?

 Some more rogue chooks.  
We cant keep these in their pen, they like to roam around and scratch about everywhere.  Probably laying eggs somewhere in the bushes...

 My gorgeous grandson...

Had his 9th birthday yesterday the 1st of May...
This time has gone by so quickly xx

The beautiful birthday cake was made by Blake's "other" Nan pictured above...

 Every second Wednesday, I have the privilege of looking after Sarah's (my eldest) dog Bailey (grand dog) while she is at work.
In the late afternoon he sits in this spot watching and waiting for his mum...sooo cute :)

I have started a new project...a bright coloured blanket perhaps?

Another beautiful sunset to finish the day off yesterday...

Today is windy but warm.  Last night was a little chilly so I think it is time for putting fleecy sheets on the beds.

Abundant Blessings,  



  1. Cute baby chicks! Happy Birthday to your grandson and love your grand doggie...he is so sweet sitting there like that! Love the colors on the blanket-to-be too!

  2. My dog does a similar thing and then when i enter the door, he plonks himself down on his back for a tummy rub. So im trying to get in the door with bags and shopping (as mothers do) and he's right in the way. He then spends the rest of the night following me from room to room and then sleeps on the floor beside my bed. It can be annoying sometimes but his unconditional love is very welcome.

  3. Ah, the chicks are so cute! I'm still waiting for ours, I'll probably be retired when they arrive. Lol!

    It sure has been chilly at night and this morning, it was only 5C when we got up! Brr - bit of a shock to the system!

    Cheers - Joolz

  4. What a handsome grandson you have! Happy Birthday to him!!! Love his cake!
    The new babies are so cute, aren't they?
    Love the new project!
    Hard to believe you are thinking fleece, just when we are turning on our AC!!

  6. Sweet chicks! I love the idea of kitkats around the cake leaving an edge for all of those lollies in there...what a kid's delight!
