winds of change

I feel that I have been through a process that has made me a different person to the person I was at this time last year. It's been very positive for me; but I think that while it has been happening, it has been reflected in the lack of blogging I have been doing. There have been things going on that I haven't been able to write about because of the way that would impact on people that I care about. Quite a few people who know me and my family in real life read this blog; and whilst I am comfortable with that, there is no denying that it *does* mean that sometimes I self-censor.


Things have moved on sufficiently so that I feel that I can blog properly again. So where are we?

We have just come back from a skill-sharing weekend with the Downsizer contingent in North Devon. It was great fun - I demonstrated 'Chicken Wrangling' which went down well, I think, despite one of the chickens in question managing to poo in my pocket as it was being wrangled. And I learned how to sharpen things. And spent time with some people who have become very good friends over the last few years.

B is working today - as usual things are tailing off for the summer and we are looking forward to having time to do things chicken-wise and garden-wise together. Once I manage to get my phone sorted, I am going to try to post a picture-a-day for a bit.

Now I'm off to pick up some hatching eggs!


  1. good to see you back in the blogging world :)

    Look forward to your photos, especially any chicken related, it is always interesting to see other peoples set ups.

    Take care

  2. Oh, I am pleased to see you back - I've been hoping you've just been busy and that things are going well.
