After more than 2 years of keeping chickens, I recently had to buy (shock, horror!) some eggs! I thought very carefully where I would purchase them from. I knew it wasn't going to be from a supermarket. Then one day I was at the Stockfeed place stocking up on chook food, guinea pig food and bird seed and the owner had some eggs for sale on the counter. Two dozen actually. So I purchased both after being assured they were free range. Got them home, cooked up some that night to have in our hamburgers, along with our "one" left over from our own chooks and I think the photo best describes them.

Case of the Missing Chook

One morning last week, I went to let the chooks out early as usual, but there was only 3.


Where was she?

I waited and waited. Worried, like Happy Feet, she had passed away during the night.

I wasn't going in to discover her body, so I woke Phil up and sent him in.

I waited to hear "she's dead", but no, nothing.

She wasn't there. Where was she? Had a fox taken her during the night? We scanned high and low looking for a clue. A sign. Anything.

Then Phil turned around and called out "there she is" She was wandering around in the run.

Had I missed her first thing? I didn't think so, but now I wasn't sure.

At least she was alive, even if it was a mystery.

An hour later, I was outside again, and noticed we only had 3 chooks again.


Okay, now I was sure she was hiding somewhere.

But where?

There wasn't really that many places.

I finally heard a noise that drew me to their "bus shelter" and there she was, sittting quite happily!

Cheeky girl!

We attended Family Mass at school last Sunday, it was a beautiful evening, the weather perfect, the service was lovely.

Another Year Older ....

 I can't believe our first-born is 27 today! Where do the years go? It seems like yesterday she was born, I remember it more clearly in some ways than the next two daughters, maybe because she was my first? I'm not sure, but it still doesn't seem that long ago. Happy Birthday Amie Turtle :) x
We didn't see her today, but hopefully next weekend.

Perth International Arts Festival - The Giants

We all caught the train into the City this afternoon to see this spectacular display!  We only saw the 'girl' giant, but it was pretty awesome to check out what all the fuss was about! The crowds were massive (estimate 400, 000 today, 180, 000 yesterday and ? tomorrow) Well done Perth City! It was great to have this special event that brought so many families together.

Twelve on the Tenth

We celebrated Ella turning 12 on Tuesday. It was a very low key day, with much wanted gifts, and a small afternoon tea with just the four of us. Kate made her cupcakes the night before for her to share with her friends. What an awesome sister! Only one family member remembered, and that was a message through my Facebook. A bit sad really. She will be having a few friends over in a couple of weeks for some fun though. She is just in the process of making some new friends at school, so should be exciting to have some new faces around!

Happy Birthday beautiful girl! x
