A Quiet Post


I had promised to show you where we went on Sunday. Since then our sickly Hilda hen who had always been the weakest of the flock has died. and so my mood has changed. She had a heartattack and keeled over in the henhouse which I think has got to be so much better than the alternative. Hilda was the sweetest of the four - the one who was always standing behind me as I hung the washing or walked around the garden. Each time you lose a pet who has become part of the family it's not any easier than the last time.

Instead of much chat I will just leave you with a few pictures of things that caught my eye at Gressenhall Museum which was once a workhouse and also has a farm.





We all enjoyed ourselves the most at the farm where piglets played around their mother and naughty hens walked wherever they pleased.



Finally the farmhouse teacosy, the colours and style of which I found rather inspiring for future projects.

    A sad end to what looks like a lovely family day out. Will add there to my list of places to visit.

  6. Oh really sorry to hear about the sad loss of Hilda. My poor beloved moggie is on borrowed time with us and its looking like I may have to take her on that dreaded journey to the vet very soon. Its so horrid, I'm glad Hilda went very quickly and in a place where she was happy.

  7. Im most sorry to hear about your family hen, thats most sad :(
    On a brighter note, I must comment upon that tea cozy - as I get older I am drawn towards these things, and although I dont own one (yet) I find myself gasping in delight at some of the quirkier and more colourful designs!

    Sending love

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
