We finally had a walk this morning, it has been very wet and I am still hoping that eventually we will have some sun. Those huge clouds turned into a thunderstorm this afternoon. Yesterday we heard that a very dear friend had died on sunday on the Gold Coast so this morning was spent trying to find flights to get up there on sunday, no funeral date yet but we assume Monday or Tuesday. We will be up there for a week staying with j, no point in not staying for a few days but unfortunately death doesnt give you much warning. Our oldest son and his wife are also coming over from Melbourne for the week end but at least we will see them for a couple of days. Now I have to work out what clothes I have for a warmer climate, here one would think it was still July, jumpers and warm pants and I have no idea if I can still fit into anything, the waist line seems to have expanded. so much to do and not much time to do it in. OH and out of the 10 eggs under the broody hen so far I have 1 chicken, probably male!

So sorry to hear about your friend.

As far as hatching eggs is concerned. I stopped doing it some years ago as I got so many males - and then there is a problem what to do with them all.

We've had two deaths in our family within the past month. Its never easy for those of us left behind.
