egg citing new delivery!

Well the holidays have started off well.
Cameron has now finished primary school, so he is starting secondary school in september. Big steps for all of us, for him its a new school, new friends etc for the parents its another child that has left primary school and you can now start to feel your age, i mean it doesnt seem like 5 mins since me and my hubby went to the same school, but now its been 25 years since then. How things can seem so fresh in your mind. Anyway im sure Cameron will have lots of fun but it just reminds me that i have to let go a bit more often....

Yes as the title says i literally had a egg citing delivery.....
Mable my brown hen has become broody this last 2 weeks, spending all day sitting on her nest box, not moving to far at all.  So after speaking to my dearest friend over at scented sweetpeas, she and her husband payed me a little visit. Down they came on their tandem..with a special delivery of 6 freshly laided hopefully fertile eggs... so hopefully around about the 21st of August we may have some little fuffy chicks, oh i cant wait i feel like an expected mum all over again.

 Also the timing couldnt be much better as it will be Camerons 11th birthday on the 21st so hopefully a lovely present, we shall have to wait and see.

We all had a good day out the other saturday, as there was a family fun day/bug hunt at our local nature reserve. Lots of bugs and butterflies  were found, even this strange little fellow below......

its amazing how much fun can be had in a plastic tube...

one find was this horrid looking fellow...

Bear was joined by his friends Esme and James, Cameron had his friends Ethan and Oliver and Beth had fun with Ethan and Esme's sister Imogen. It was so nice just to have all friends together including all the parents and just relaxing and having fun.

Before i go i must say pop over and see the lovely lady at country rose as she is holding a lovely giveaway. I have had trouble getting the link but if you look at blueberry fields blog she has a link.

Anyway i hope you have all had some fun days x x x now i look forward in seeing what you have all been up to xxx
