reasons to be cheerful...

1. at last the sun is out and so are the daffs my dad planted last autumn when he visited
2. i am a mother hen
3. my new wellies that match the chicken coop have been christened
4. big bertha can do tricks
5. little orla and little eva have survived their rocky start and went out to play
6. after weeks of 'what are you thinking' in the clothing department, target come up trumps with a lovely retro top for summer
7. i have a man with a beard building my chicken coop and washing on the line
8. it's so hot i've had to break out the nail polish and razor...a balmy 70 odd degrees
9. pesky squirrels are waiting patiently for their moment to shine
10. a patchwork curtain, a bit wonky but will surfice...never craft late at night, whilst being florence nightingale

Good list! Love the wellies. The squirrels are cheeky. Curtain has inspired me. Your coop is big and fancy looking. All nice.

We too have had the sun after long awaiting it's arrival. We worked on our chicken palace. (I also have a man with a beard building a coop.)

I love that top.

I think wonky patchwork is the best kind, it looks good to me!

I do love the patchwork curtain. You just got on with it whereas I would look at it, worry about it, try to find a book about it, look it up on the computer, talk about it to several people...and then just NOT do it.

i can't wait to see the coop! the man with a bear at my house got lucky--our chicks will be living in my childhood playhouse and all he needs to do is make a door and some nesting boxes. the curtain is lovely!
