Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

New hens for the chookhouse.

Ken is slowly improving, but still has a lot of pain internally from the shingles, so is on strong pain killers, which make him drowsy.  So he has to wait until the effect wears off before he can drive, otherwise he just skips the medication so he can drive when fully alert, even if in pain!  Today we went up to Launching Place where we bought six bantam hens from a man that Ken knows from the local Poultry club.  The  new girls are really cute, and Ralph the Rooster is quite taken with them!  He didn't take any notice of his other hens once we put the new ones into the chook house - he was clucking around them once he got over the shock of having a whole new tribe to deal with!  You can see photos on my Birds in a Back yard blog.

Oh dear, I'm sorry about the shingles. I hope he feels better soon.
