Just a quick post today to keep me blogging. Both me and Brian were back to work today but I didn't realise I was only working half a day so that was a major bonus! I'm also only doing half a day tomorrow and have the day of Thursday so it's shaping up to be a pretty good week! So how did I spend my unexpected afternoon? Cleaning the kitchen of course! In doing so I discovered that old facial exfoliators make brilliant oven cleaners (handy tip). Brian thinks it's very funny that I'm blogging about cleaning. Not because of how stupidly boring it is but because he thinks I'm showing off for cleaning and to be honest I am :) I would also like a medal please :)

Actually my main reason for blogging today is to show off my chicken house I have found and that we will hopefully be purchasing in the next few months so that I can get my chucks! (Wow, that was a bit Northern). So here it is in all it's glory, the Egg Ark 4 (cool name)
It's so lovely. Can't wait to get it :) That's it for today really. I could write for a bit longer to delay having to think about tea but I'm not sure Cal's stomach would thank me. Here is my lovely picture for today. It's an arty one I took up in Scotland a few weeks ago and I quite like it :)

New year, new look, new blogs (hopefully!)

Well I'm finally back after my 2 months blogging drought. As predicted by many, my blogging took a bit of a back seat after a while when things got busy but I've spent the last few days looking at some other blogs and have become re-inspired, hence the new look! I'm not even going to bother promising to blog a certain amount at the mo. I think I am just a sparadic blogger at heart. Lots has happened since my last blog. If I start explaining it I'll waffle on for ages so as a way of keeping myself brief I'll put it all into bullet points :)
  • Started working at the dental practice (good)
  • Went to cottage on Alpaca farm in Scotland for Brian's 40th (very good)
  • Found a house and moving at the end of Jan (very very good!)
  • Celene had her operation and all went well
  • Had a lovely Christmas
  • It snowed...lots!
There has probably been lots more but never mind. Two of the most exciting things about the house we are moving too is that it has lovely apple tree and I can keep chickens!!!! Me, Brian and Cal are booked onto a chicken keeping course in two weeks which I'm sooo excited about!!

Think today is just a mini 'get back into blogging' blog so thats it for now. Will leave you with a lovely picture of the snow xxx
