And the rock wall inspired the other cementing to be started and finished too!!

You might remember, that I really wanted 4 extra courses on our fireplace hearth – so the Christmas stockings will hang at a nice height.  It is important that the most special time of the year looks right!!

So my Honey obliged!

And he did the final clean up so they are all back to glorious recycled red brick colour too :-)!!

The rock wall is finished!  That would be FINISHED!!  Finished rocks, finished cement, finished cleaned-up too!

Oh, Happy Day!!!

Isn’t he wonderful?!

So, the reason the snake might have been visiting…we have more baby chicks :-).


Michael’s sister brought them over a couple of weeks ago when they visited, and we fostered them under one of the broody Wyandottes – she is a great mummy!

And Michael has built them their own part of the chook run – see this new internal door and wired wall?

And a new little chook house:

They have settled in very well.  Here’s hoping we have more luck than the previous 6 out of 6 rooster chicks!!
