Rain, rain,go away,come back another day!

As per post title! Think the chickens are turning into ducks! The garden is awash, particularly in the middle. My garden is a good foot lower on the north west side and being on a hill, the water drains onto my garden. Hey ho!

I commented on my own blog instead of posting a new post. I forgot to mention that, these new hens/chicks are called the 'Spice Girls', not after the pop group but, my love of spices. The 2Warren type are called, Ginger and Nutmeg, the 2 Crested Cream Legbar chicks are called, Cinnamon (?sp) and Clove and the Rhode Island Red X Plymouth Barred Rock is called Mace.

Ear defenders.....

I already had some ear defenders and didn't realise it until I started looking for something in a box and discovered my old 1970's Stereo headphones! They work wonderfully well without any music piped through them, as ear defenders! Glad they didn't go in a 'de-cluttering' session! So now I can pop them on when using my mini processor or the bar/stick blender! Mind you, the fairly long lead has to be thrown over my shoulder and tucked into my waistband as, it can get in the way!
