A happy event part 2

July 25th, 2008 No comments

Our chicks are growing fast. I’ve started taking them outside during the day for a run and so that they can acclimatise, flap their wings and get some grass beneath their feet. Al has made a little pen for them because otherwise they’ll get lost in the long grass. The last time we allowed a little chick some freedom outside with it’s mother, a crow took it. They still need protection but need to get used to life outside. It was raining the other day and so Al set then up with an umbrella!
Trudi can’t take her eyes of them. She’s obsessed. She sits, as stiff as a board, staring at them. In the morning all she wants to do is go into the kitchen to check they are still there, cheeping away.

Series 5 of the Wire starts tonight at 10pm on FX. I’ve been looking forward to it since the end of series 4. At the same time it will be hard knowing it’s the last series. Over the last few months we’ve watched the whole thing from the beginning finishing with the 3 final episodes of season 4 last night.
Dragon’s Den starts again tonight. It’s not The Apprentice but it’ll do. For the next few weeks, Monday night will be a big TV night for me.


A happy event

We’ve got these 3 chicks living in a box in the kitchen. I couldn’t get them to all face the camera at the same time!
