Weekend sleepover

011When I was in primary school, I used to have pet chickens (and ducks. And at one stage, a stray turkey. It walked up the road and into our neighbours yard, and when unclaimed it came to live with us. We called her Hilda. Seriously.)

This weekend I had a flashback, as we have been looking after a cheepy little friend. She likes company and follows me around when she gets the chance to get out of her box.  She also likes to jump up and sit on my shoulder. Or in the pocket of my hoodie.

At the moment we head down to the farming area near the treehouse to get our veggies and free-range eggs. I harbour hopes that one day we might have some chooks of our own here at the treehouse. But just at the moment, I seem to have my hands full!
