Yay! Youngest son has just been touch to offer to come back next week and help us finish moving the hen house and pen onto my enlarged allotment.
This is a job we started on 3 January, braving the cold and wet to get started. I arranged a family working party (me and Malcolm, both sons and partners, step-father) which was to have taken the whole day and finished the job in one go.
But we chickened out (groan!!) and most of us went off for a long walk after a leisurely lunch, leaving youngest son and daughter-in-law valiantly carrying on working by themselves.
They did a great job – so far! And now we need to finish it off, because I’ve agreed with the council that I will give up the additional half plot where I’ve had the chickens for the past 6 years or so, by the end of March.
Weather forecast looking good for next Thursday – let’s hope it stays that way!
