The chicks have hatched!

Golly, I just don’t know where the time goes!

Another busy time for us, which is always nice as it means there are lots of people around the cottages and the camp site. Last week a youngest learnt to ride his bike down at River Valley, brings a smile to my face!

We had great excitement here this week when 8 of my eggs hatched. So far so good, hen and chicks are all doing well. This weekend the hatching of the blue eggs is eagerly anticipated. I have posted some pictures on our Facebook page of the new arrivals.

Talking of which, I am pleased to say we are now on Facebook. It is not something I use much but Alison, Paddy, Richard and Heidi are updating the pages with information about things to do and pictures out and about so do have a look. Apparently if you ‘like’ our page you will get updates on what we are doing…all a bit beyond me but give it a go!

With such lovely weather down here (after a few showers in the weeks) I shall be popping out and about in the next few days. I hope to visit the Lost Garden of Heligan this weekend, the plants are truly amazing this time of year, in fact I think this my favourite time to visit.

Afterwards I share be popping into Lobbs Farm Shop. Owned and run by the Lobb Family it has a huge selection of local meat and vegetables…I might even rustle up a roast depending on the weather!

I must also recommend to you the wonderful Trewithen Restaurant in Lostwithiel. Lostwithiel itself is worth a visit for it’s large selection of antique shops. But the Trewithen is worth a visit if you like quality food in a homely environment. Claire and her husband make you feel at ease, serving fabulous food. We were there a few weekends ago for John’s birthday-I won’t say how old he was- let’s just say it was a ‘milestone’!

Off to count my chicks now.

Bye for now
