Last Monday being a bank holiday I made the most of the extra day off work and took my Nan out for the afternoon. I blogged about our trip to Osterley Park on Friday.
A couple of coffee dates were enjoyed last week. Already crossing something off that June bucket list. Wednesday saw a tea, doughnuts, crochets and good conversation with my best friend and Thursday involved a trip to Costa to meet with some old colleagues.
James worked away a lot this week so I spent a lot of time catching up with a new series I've started watching on Netflix, Life un-expected. Have any of you seen it? I am loving it so far, I literally can't get enough of it. And as the weather was so cold it made perfect sense to run a steaming hot bath with my Lush Yuzu & Coco bubble melt whilst watching an episode.
Saturday saw me collect 3 new chickens. We had a bad experience Monday morning before I headed out, where we had a visit from Mr Fox who left us with just the one chicken. So Saturday I picked her up some new friends. They are Rescue hens from the British Hen Welfare Trust. Sadly at the moment they are in pretty bad condition, due to the conditions that they have been kept in until now. But give them a month or so and they should be looking very healthy. I'm hoping to write a separate post up soon with an update on the chickens.
Then the weekend was rounded up nicely wit a day spent tending the veg patch. A few more things have been planted and a lot of weeding has been done. Perhaps another garden update post is in order too.
A very productive and good days work, finished off with dinner alfresco in the garden.
It feels as though it has been a long week. Th weekend rounded it off nicely though, and what is even better is that I have an extra long weekend as I've booked today off work to spend with my husband. Here's to another good week.
