New chicks and a special request!

So, after a fabulous holiday we're back home again but amidst the unpacking and washing we had a rather exciting day!

Firstly, we collected five 8 week old chicks to join our brood! We have only got one chicken left who doesn't lay anymore so needed to replenish our egg laying potential! These came from the reception class at the girls' school! They seemed to have settled in very well, although cheep rather loudly! Let's hope they don't all turn out to be male as the girls are rather attached already!

Secondly today, my girls were asked to be bridesmaids next year to a very good friend of mine! So, even more excitement! They (and I!) are over the moon and we can't wait! We feel very honoured and I just know the whole wedding is going to be gorgeous!

So, lots of excitement here in the White house and a new found love for all things crafty, watch this space!

    Can't wait to hear about what you've been up to.

  3. Hi there saw i had a new follower this morning & had to come visit. Am loving this post, those chicks are just the cutest, i've been trying to persuade my hubbie to get some but he's a 'not so good with animals' type :(

  4. Sounds like a very exciting day. This post would link really well to reasons to be cheerful over on Mich's blog Mummy From the Heart. Don't know if you've ever read those posts but I find them really uplifting - just like reading yours today.
