Diwrnod Santes Dwynwen Hapus

or happy Saint Dwynwens day, to those of you who dont read welsh! here in Wales this is like the welsh version of valentines day, Laurie came out of school and presented me with a heart and told me he loved me and his Daddy, ahh.


earlier today I had needed some retail therapy (I tried to just get away with having just cake and coffee, but could find no one to go with, so shopping it was!) and I bought these chickens for a fantastic bargain price in the sales. I am so pleased as I have liked them for ages, I first saw some on holiday in West Wales several years ago. So, now I have 3 chickens all of my own!! I dont think I will be able to let them remain free-range in my garden though, as their wire feet will rust, although their bodies are pretty waterproof. they are (fairly) made from recycled and over-run plastic bags and food wrappings, aren't they cool?? They say they want to live indoors. I got a few other bargains too, including some fab bookends which you can see here or here (not a direct link, but look for boy/girl bookends under stationary). That website has some nice blackboards and other bits too, I wanted to buy the apple shaped coat pegs, but there were only 2 left and they were both damaged. Had lunch in a nice little salad bar/vege food place, healthy , but made up for with the rocky road bar for dessert, though I did have to share with the baby!!!!!

Hannnah where did you get those book ends from? How cool are they. I'm so please you managed to get those chickens. Not so sure how they'll be at laying though !

Mmm, can't see the picture of your chickens, but I love those book ends. I've seen them before and thought they were so cool.
