Weather is cold but sunny and my mood as lifted considerably! SAD syndrome is a big thing for me, wish I could afford one of those light machines!


Vacuumed up one of Nemos chewy rope toys and snapped the band on my cleaner, wasn't cheap to replace it and took me half an hour to figure out how to get into the base but have successfully repaired it and am vacuuming again, also replaced the bulb in the fridge, so nice to have the little light to click on each time I open the door! Its also nice that I can do these things myself and don't have to ask a man, my dad bless him always asks who fixed things and is surprised when I say I did!


Just chased the fox out of the garden again, luckily my reinforcements are working and although he may worry the chooks a little, he hasn't managed to get any of them. Stevie and Frankie are growing well and are still inside in the warm but no longer under the heat lamp, in a few weeks will move them to the carport, which is outside temp but no wind and then a few weeks later to the garden. Not sure how the battery hens will react to them, will keep them in runs side by side for a few weeks, so they get used to each other and let maybe free range together while I'm out there to guard them. Do you know with all the chicken work, walking the dog and the weather I haven't worn any other footwear than my wellies for months now?

Not exactly the same as mine but I have two pairs of pink flowery wellies and covet more!

I have a SAD light. They're not cheap, but they're not mind-boggling expensive, either. If you could manage to put aside ten pounds a month starting now, you could probably get one next fall.

This is the first year I've used one, and I think it's made a significant difference to my energy levels and overall mood.

I LOVE those boots. I WANT them.

Ah. SAD lights. I wish I had one.
