Whilst our eldest daughter Tam was here, we managed a walk along the valley side, past our smallholding neighbour's home. She was out but we walked on and met her coming the other way, so we all went back for a cup of tea and a natter, and then of course, we had to see the new arrivals. . .
The brown Khaki Campbell ducklings, about a week old in this pic, have been joined by some 2 day old Aylesburys, and are happily snuggled up in a pen of straw, under the heat lamp.
The other new arrivals are these three Leghorn chicks. N said she had already had to clip a wing on each as they were hell-bent on escape!!
Outside, were two of the Cayuga ducks, and the other side of the road, one of the two donkeys came across in the hope of carrots.
Views on the way home - across the valley, and below, the top of the steep hill we had just climbed.
Today (Thursday), my OH had a Dr's appt. about his sore shoulder, but was just given more painkillers and told to keep using it . . . I thought he might get sent to see the Physio, but no.
As it was sunny, we had a short wander along the beach at Llansteffan, and I did a little tidying in the garden this afternoon, but my asthma has been bad again, so I couldn't empty the wheelbarrow and gave K's shoulder a workout when he did it for me. I have just been weeding one bed and now have some bark chippings on it which have tidied it up.
Then I came in and hastily recovered the little footstool, which is going to the Fair tomorrow. We will be busy packing and then unpacking the other end, and getting set up ready for the weekend (it is the two day Fair at the Botanic Gardens). Tomorrow I had better remember to bake a cake - I meant to today and then clean forgot.
Let's hope for some more of that sunshine . . .
