I saw the fox as well. He was rather healthy looking but if I see him again, that could change. I am taking the dogs up to the run and letting them pee all around the fence to try to put off the invader. I'm sure he'll try again but I have a surprise for him if he does. I have just spent two hours rewiring the whole run with really sharp chicken wire. I am now wearing band-aides like a 5 year old. The stuff is sharp.
The chickens haven't been the only problem on the homestead. Honey bees swarmed in my bedroom the other afternoon. Not fun. Creepy really. I had to find out how they were coming in and duct tape the whole. Crafty buggers. They have been living peacefully in the rafters outside our bedroom window for more then 15 years and have never invaded our space before. But for some reason, the other day they did. They got through the brick and made their way between the plaster board and the wall and crept out into the room along a beam. The wall doesn't look very pretty all duct taped but it will have to do until the pest control man comes on Monday morning to sort them out. I don't want to have to do it but now they have become dangerous. I ended up vacuuming up 159 sleepy bees. I did kindly let them free into the garden and then ran away fast.
I've thought about bee keeping as a hobby but now I'm not so sure.
Can I say a thank you to Michelloui, London City Mum and Selina for being supportive. You all are very kind and I am going to keep blogging. I really do enjoy the writing and so that is what I am going to do. I'm going to try to be more consistent as well. I think a bit of routine in my life would be a good thing.
