Taught three different classes this week: sewing, hen keeping and crochet. Amazing at the cross over. So many people from each group who are interested in the other subjects. Most common link though was hens!

Really enjoyed teaching the classes, I think they're going to be a lot of fun over the coming month.

Made these yesterday to use in my lessons this week

Practical Poultry Magazine

I've written an article this month for Practical Poultry magazine (October issue) about 'Neighbours'.

House Move

Well, the moving process is going ok. Just trying to get removals companies to come with a decent quote. The amount of work involved with moving is overwhelming at the moment. There are hold ups with the exchange of contract, but I've put down a deposit on a rental place anyway, otherwise we could be left with 2 days to go before we have to move out with absolutely nowhere to live.

I'm packing up boxes, but struggling with taking down the heavy things that need a screwdriver (unfortunately not something I own). At the moment I'm relying on friends who will hopefully bale me out at the last minute, otherwise I will have to drag a man off the street!

Garage Sale

Lots of my bits and bobs sold now, but still quite a few bits left, especially books, so if anyone still wants them you need to come quick before they go to the charity shop.

Also have left a flymo lawnmower, glass cake stands, still some wool to go, knitting needles, books, books and more books.

My hens

It's with much regret that I have to rehome my hens. I have 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Brahmas, 1 Wellsummer, 1 Black Orpington and 2 ex-battery hens. I also have some young Buff Orpingtons. At the moment I think two of them may be cockerals and one hen. They're about 12 weeks old. The other Buff Orpingtons are quite old (about 5 yrs old), but beautiful nonetheless and I'm really looking for a home where they can free range as they're used to wandering around the garden. If anyone would like to add them to their flock please let me know. I'm letting them go in two's - so the two Buff Orpingtons together etc etc
