Sad news for the neighbours yesterday. Their sick chook passed away last night. Whatever was stuck in her crop just didn’t want to dislodge. They only had the chook for a week, so didn’t get too attached to it, which was probably just as well.
Danni & Dale took the carcase down to the local Vet who for $15 will get the pet cemetery to cremate it. More like roast chicken, with potatoes and a nice gravy, me thinks at the Vet’s house for dinner tonight (not nice, I know).
On the subject of chickens, Edwina has done something to her leg whilst mucking around in the back yard this afternoon. I had a look at her and there is no blood or broken skin, so I think she may have just landed hard on it when she jumped off of the garden bed wall. She is walking with a bit of a limp, and in some pain. Hopefully she will be a lot better tomorrow.
There will be no post tomorrow (or gardening), as it is Kim and my 12th wedding anniversary. So we will be celebrating with a nosh up dinner. I am making Beef Rogan Josh, with all the trimmings and Kim is making a simple desert. Kim’s sister Lydia and her boyfriend Matt are coming over for dinner as well, so we are looking forward to a relaxing, memorable day, with a lot of champagne and giggles!
