I smell like a sewer

But for good reason I promise! The rain has completely turned the chicken run to a slurry pit again so I have spent the afternoon attempting to dry it up a bit and sanitise it. The smell before was horrendous, I don't think Silver and Ginger were very impressed... The house also had a good clean out too, I always hate the thought of doing it but once I get out there I don't mind really!

One thing that is bugging me though, there's a family of earwigs living in one corner of the house. Now I have tried getting rid of it but they keep coming back. It makes me wonder; if earwigs are not being killed by the red mite powder then does that mean any potential red mites aren't either? There is no sign of any so far but I want it to stay that way!

I am glad my chicks have fun free ranging the garden but they are a pain in the arse sometimes! Ill forgive them for the constant supply of poo (it's much better than the cats!) but the general need to wreck EVERYTHING is a little excessive. Just the other day we heard this all mighty sqark and flap of feathers. Instantly thinking they were being murderd but a cat (or worse) we raced to the door, flung it open and found that Ginger had knocked over one of my heavy flower pots!!!

Thanks for that then! In all fairness I blame Scott for balancing it precariously on the rockery but even so, I spend more time clearing up after them then I do actually gardening!

Stones in the grass is a big pet hate of mine. Every time I rake them back I end up pulling out the grass. Theres not a lot of it as there is!

And more grass digging! This patch is looking barer and barer each day that passes, the rain turning what is left into a mud pit doesn't help either!

2 lovely fresh eggs a day goes a long way to making up for it though I guess!

Now I'm off for a bath!
