December 1 - Update.

Bev continues to raise the chicks - well not really chicks any more. When the dust settled and we saw the bigger picture - the 6 chicks she hatched - 4 were cockerels and 2 were hens. We knew the consequences and set to looking for homes for the cockerels. The first rehoming happened a couple of weeks ago. I was in the farm shop and a lady on route to Sheffield had just rehomed some hens - so she would have a cockerel. Long story but there you go.

last weekend  two more cockerels were rehomed in a local allotment and are happily settling in.

From the word go I knew we were keeping the white cockerel - he seemed to form a bond with Bev.

I've named him Barry - ie Barry White...but as Jon pointed out Barry White was Black...all the more reason why the name Barry is a good choice.

Village activities continue to buzz along - watch this space!

TIME IS PRECIOUS - midst our busy lives it is good to blow away the cobwebs and have TIME out when the TIDE is out. Due to the tide situation we ventured to Redcar yesterday and had a lovely time on the beach. Busy as usual but nice to take a few hours ot. Jon is busy at work - this week for me.....Soup for 30+ tomorrow......sponge pud & custard, fruit flan or trifle for desert!A couple of meetings regarding village life and a session on Saturday in our library for children to write their letters to Santa and for parents to buy tickets to see the man in red. We're having a visit to a recycling workshop to make christmas table decorations to sell at our Christmas Coffee Morning/Santa's vist - 26th November! Watch this space.
