And at the end of the day, me and my girls were very happy indeed.

This morning there were four happy hens, three lovely eggs, and one very happy me.  By this afternoon, they’re already looking as though they’ve always lived here.

2015-03-18 15.10.36 Although we had to buy quite a lot of materials (and youngest son took the opportunity to stock up on some tools – sledgehammer being his current favourite), we were also able to re-use and re-purpose quite a lot: the henhouse (bought second hand from a former colleague about 10 years ago and now  just moved); most of the chicken wire (donated by another plot holder who has a thatcher friend), and all the breeze blocks and slabs (scavenged over the years from skips).

About deborah @ the magic jug

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
