30th December 2013 - Last day of visit

The house is now suddenly quite quiet. We have a had a couple of days of joy and bouncing children all of whom it must be said have been on best behaviour during their entire visit, and it has been a pleasure to see them. That does not mean that they have not been running their parents ragged - but I have spent a nice day watching Peter and the Wolf and Alice in Wonderland, doing a few photograph galleries and generally enjoying the company of Grandchildren. You can always give them back !!

But now the house is a little quieter. The sun is going down on a horizon somewhere and as the light fades I am waiting a short while before putting the Chickens away. Two have taken aversion to going to bed lately. I am not sure if it is the plastic sheeting that drapes the coup, which in fairness does rattle and shake a lot, and makes a fair amount of noise, or whether they just do not want to go to bed.... One has always been a little reticent, being slightly bullied by the remaining three, but now it is a case of getting two put away and then chasing around the garden while trying to ensure that the first two do not escape again!!  At first, a shake of the corn pot and a sprinkle of grain on the ground was enough to get them all in - but they are getting wise to our ways!!

But final photos have been processed and are on their way to Flickr and Facebook.
