I don't want them to grow up too quickly and miss what being young and carefree is all about.
I want them to enjoy it all. But being their mom, I want to be part of their enjoyment too...So far so good.

Head games

I'm so pleased with my three little feathered friends. They are laying eggs daily, big fat eggs. I thought maybe this foul (ha ha) weather might put them off but not a chance. 

Puppy class was great fun yesterday. Even though our recall skills are hit and miss- and I say 'ours' because Cadi isn't totaly to blame for her stuborness- and we freaked some poor insecure woman out with  a rottwieler, we still had fun. We got to do some agility training. Since Cadi is still only 8 months old, she got to jump over  little cross jump and thought it was pretty fun. We did lots of weaving and leg work and then went home and slept for the rest of the day.
It exhausted both of us.

So, I am on day 16 of the head ache. I've been to the doctor three times and am on the third type of pill to try to ease the ache. He didn't really have much hope for this last pill but he wants to rule out migrains before he sends me off to a specialist. 
Headaches are really boring. I have things to do, places to go and friends to see and children to take care of and this is slowing me down. 
I don't like ths game.


  1. Hens are such fun...and so are dogs..what a clever pup. Sorry to hear about the headaches, have you had your eyes tested recently, maybe an optician could could shed some light on the headaches? Do hope it eases soon,
    Best wishes

  2. Thanks Posie- one of the first things I did ws have the goggles checked out. A very cool machine too photos of my eyes and everything was all clear. We'll see.

  3. Our young hens have just started laying, much to my amazement. The eggs are still small but they get bigger every week. I'm sorry about your headache. I get migraines so I can symptathise. Hope you get it resolved soon

  4. Oh sweetie, the headaches don't sound good. The sooner your doctor sends you off to a specialist the better, I think. What a luxury having freshly-laid eggs...lucky you!
    And belated thanks for my blogger award - it's much appreciated xx

  5. Hope the headaches are sorted soon. The puppy class could well not be helping! We are taking our two weekly also, and it is fun but a little stressful when they let you down!!!
