Little garden party

Update on weird happenings: the pigeon has finally died behind the fire. We were all sad that we weren't able to rescue it, but glad it's finally stopped flapping around and making us all feel bad! The local crazy guy has (also finally) realised that he doesn't live here and gone back to wherever he came from! 

Meanwhile Mum, The Granny (also finally!) moved in to her newly constructed Granny flat in the basement of our house! It's been a big project (before and after photos to follow) but well worth it. Naturally, the (lovely) builders still have a fair list of jobs to finish...but it's 'moveintoable'!
Of course we couldn't let the opportunity pass without a little family party to celebrate and the sunny weather called for bunting, balloons and doilys...
 We had a visit from Mabel...
 and our boys loved playing with Sonny and Luca (and Ned!)...
...and the chickens!
We also made the decision to let broody hen Pearl sit on the duckling eggs! She gets off them occasionally to get a drink but other than that she has hardly moved. They only have 1 week to go until hatching far so good.
Fingers crossed!
