Peaceful Sigh!

Well, the end of the world didn't happen - thankfully. I still have far too much fabric to chop up and sew back together before before I'm ready for the end of the world.

Christmas has been and gone and I did manage to spend some short but precious time with some of my family which was lovely. I didn't take many photos either but I do have a couple on my phone which I'll scrap and post later.

Today though I've had to take a poorly girl under my wing - no pun intended. She is one of the farm chickens and has been attacked by one of the farm dogs. They have taken nearly every feather off her back and she looks really sore. I have her in a basket of straw in my dog's old cage along with food and water. The owners are away on holiday still. I suspect that one of the young cockerels has met an untimely demise as well. Loads of feathers all over the place and no cockerel to be found anywhere.

She was very stressed and cold when Ian found her lying on her back, but she seems a bit warmer now and her breathing is slower. she's even eaten a bit so we'll see how she is in the morning. I may yet take her to the vets. Ironic really as her owner is a vet.

Here's a picture of the poorly girl. I'll keep you posted on her progress. She's going to need a wooly jumper to keep her warm.

I am looking forward to 2013 as I have a few plans that I want to get off the ground.
See you all on the other side. Ciao for now xx

Oh my goodness, what a terrible thing to have happened to the poor creature. I am so glad you are taking such good care of her.
I hope that 2013 is going to be a more settled year for you, Joy, and I wish you all the very best, happiness, improved health, and some fun, girl!
Must get together on skype or msn soon, my dear, I miss chatting with you xxxxx
