Yesterday the chickens got a new peice of real estate-spacious,sunny,open plan and nice neighbours! Their coop got moved down the back of our property and the lovely Ben made a fantastic job of constructing them a new run. Their lovely but very noisy "man" came to a sad demise aswell but I think ultimately they were happy about that and their new "neighbour" turned out to be a rabbit by the name of Pookie which they all think is amazing even laying an egg in her cage this morning!!

Finally at my 2nd and in some parts 3rd attempt my garden is finally looking like it will be a success! Love watching it grow and Ive finally discovered that the key to a great garden is WATER WATER WATER! Things I greatly dislike about my garden are: -WEEDS WEEDS WEEDS -Dirt under my fingernails -Chickens eating and scratching at it -Dogs that lie all over it just to be in the sunniest possible spot of the whole section -WEEDS WEEDS WEEDS

Yum today i have made two lots of the most delicious sun dried tomato hummus really easy to make-blend together 1 can of drained rinsed chickpeas, 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1tsp of cumin powder, the juice of 3 lemons, some sun dried tomatoes and 1/4-1/2 a cup of oil and whammo delicious hummus. i made one lot this morning which i took to give to my friend and when I came home this afternoon i couldnt resist making my self some!! Also i thought i had after school group today but the children had pet day at school so group was cancelled for this week which left us with the baking i had already prepared-Bonus!-Chocolate chocolate chip biscuits which I dutifully decorated with icing ghosts for halloween! May try to post photos later but at this time my camera has gone AWOL

well these are pretty dodgy photos but kids had scooted out the door before i had a chance to ask them to take pics! I am wearing floral though and to tell you the truth i dont really do floral not really my cup of tea and i think this is the only floral thing i own anyway Dress-from Ca'Bouge a shop over here in Akaroa-rather expensive but liked the retro look, tights from Farmers and not sure if you can see my boots but they are the ones I tend to wear every Wednesday it would seem

here is some photos of spring at my house-love this time of the year-blossom on apple trees and white currants, kakabeak and mexican orange blossom flowering,washing on the line(yah),freshly mown lawns, marigolds out and herbs flourishing. . . . . .
Well I didnt partake in wardrobe wednesday last week had been laid up with a nasty flu all week and was only just regaining some of my energy!-I think I am quite possibly one of the worlds worst patients lie around sobbing bout how i'm going to die!!! Ha Ha and guess what I actually didnt!-anyway today I have tights-stolen from my daughter, Roxy skirt from trademe and my shirt is from my sister. My favourite birkenstock sandals also from trademe last summer and jewels courtesy of my sometimes romantic Jonny! Still looking slightly concerned in top photo maybe its the sun hmmmmmm
This is my Mt Everest sized pile of washing that I need to fold and put away today. I find it satisfying to hang out bring in and fold but i LOATHE putting it away there never seems to be enough room hence the piles of clothes on top of drawers and on the floor!!!
