Day After Boxing Day!

Returned home last night having had an enjoyable few days. Eaten far to much, not drank enough and still have too many choccys left!
My sister lives here, well actually just the other side of the station in one of the old station cottages

in fact it is the old Station Masters Cottage here

this is me walking down the steps to the platform which then leads to the cottage

We went out on quite a few walks, to shake the food down abit passing a few quaint places

We had some fantastic food, even better company and I believe a good time was had by all.
I hope you all had a good time too!

Libby, I see you have four chickens. We have a bantam hen who has adopted us. She really belongs to the family next door, who are very nice but don't speak English very well.
I tried to send her back, and they pulled out her tail feathers. I suppose they thought that would stop her flying over the fence. Well it didn't and she has been here at least two months now. She is living on bird seed, (it has some shelled sunflower seeds among the seed). I feed the birds all year round. I don't mind feeding her, even though she did eat four pots of begonias! I don't want to lay claim to her. The county and city officials count her like feral cats and won't do anything. She roosts in the olive tree between our two houses. She seems to be doing OK but I'm wondering if she should have some other kind of food. Our climate is mild, we only get three or four days of frost a year and we have lots of trees and bushes as well as a place where she takes a dirt bath. We will keep her until spring if she stays around, but when we start planting flower pots again, she will have to go. My husband works too hard keeping the flowers nice in the garden. In the mean time I would like to help keep her healthy. What do you think about the food situation? We are in the San Diego area, not the UK.
