Hello lovely people!!!!

I've had so much to deal with over the last 2 years it's been manic!

I think (hope) that this week is actually an end to all of the stress and that next week will begin a new life ..... Bloody Summer is over though!! Who authorised THAT!???

New house, no hens yet so will now concentrate on building an amazing chookery for some in the Spring...

Child number three (of five) has left us for Uni in Norwich (sob sob sob) so it's just child 2,4 and 5 left, 3 cats, 3 winnie gigs, 1 rabbit and a garden bursting with tomato plants as I went a bit crazy planting them... some other food plants too but my word the tomatoes!!! So much ketchup being made lol

Love Mama Owl

Welcome back Mamaowl!

I'm with you on tomatoes - I only grew three beefsteak tomato plants but they are so loaded with child's head sized tomatoes that none of them can stand upright even with support. Luckily we do love tomatoes and have just had visitors to help with eating them all. Only about a dozen huge green ones left.

Life took a nosedive again for a while... what is going on!!

I need to get in to the habit of loggin on here at least 3 times a week. I also need to start designing a chookery as it's been 18 months since we last owned hens adn I miss them!!

I might sit down and draw plans of the garden and take some photos and then stick them on here and see wat everyone else (if anyone is left) comes up with... Like a design a chookery competition...

Hubby finally has time to look at the forum and monetise it... so I may be keeping it if it can pay it's own hosting!

It's been a while MamaOwl! #-o

There's still a few of us old stalwarts left on the forum. I login at least once a day to see if there's been any action in my absence.... :grin:

Hope your life has settled back on an even keel, at least for a while. I know I've had several issues over the last 18 months or so but things seem to be a bit better for me now too. ;)
