Mumsie, chickens and pack doglet improvements.


Feel so bad for my mum this week, she has had such a rough time of it. She loves her chickens, they are what keep her going with her illness, and this week unfortunately she lost several of them due to a virus.

Went to see her this afternoon and she was so down, my heart went out to her, as she cried and I had to give her a big squeezey hug. She looked so sad and upset. She said “I know their only chickens”, but I know their not just chickens to her. She loves them, and her loss is no different to anyone else.  Just got home and she text me to say, she had lost one of the babies that she named ‘Boots’. She had a feeling he wasn’t well. So just a bad day for her. I felt so sad for her, losing them. Sigh.

Saw my besties new puppy today Millie, she is so adorable! 

Phoebe is doing so well, and the doglets seem to be being more tolerant of her, Rex actually wagged his tail at her today, which seems to be a good sign.

We let her off the lead a little bit today, she was such a good girl, came to us everytime we called her. Not quite yet confident for her to not have the lead on at all when at the yard, but she has met the boys 3 times now and each time has gone well. She isn’t scared of them, which is good, she stays close to Freyja and they even ran together today. So she is bonding slowly but surely. I think it would go faster if she wasnt such a bull in a china shop lol she sits on them and doesn’t even notice lol

I have such a lot of fun with her and she is so adorable.

Kids back to school tomorrow am looking forward to some peace and quiet. 🙂

About silvermaneuk

Known as Nicky Turner-Sterling at school, and married and became Field. Got divorced, now Turner-Sterling again. Married to Kristopher and kept my maiden name. Nicknames are Betty, Knickers or Nicky. I am a mom to 3 great kids. I have been diagnosed with CFS/ME & Fbromyalgia and I also have neurological problems. I am registered disabled. So I have good days and bad days. Sometimes really bad days, where I cant get out of bed. But I try not to let it hold me back, I have to work with my limitations, but after a long period of being bedridden I finally got back to working albeit part time. I seem to be constantly on a diet lol. I love photography, I love my computers, and often create digital art on it. I love to read, and I love to listen to music, passionate about photography. I love to travel and look at beautiful places.I love to mooch around shops (especially the £1 shop lol) and stuff. I love to bake and cook. Love my animals, have 4 small dogs,4 cats and 1, 8 year old pony. Spirit is my best friend, I trained him, so I could ride him for physio therapy, and trained him so I could ride with as low impact as possible. Riding helps my pelvis and hips. When I dont ride it affects my gait, and I can hardly walk, so it is an excellent form of physio therapy for me. It can also make me flare badly, so I have to get the balance right. He's bitless, barefoot and treeless, he really looks after me, and makes it possible for me to have my dream, and he gave me hope again. If my physio hadn't encouraged to to try horse riding for therapy, I probably would still be bedridden. A disabled rider can do it, with the right tools! and pace pace pace! I can talk the hind leg of a donkey and snore for England. I get bored very quickly, which means I tend to flit from one thing to another, or do more than one thing at once lol.

  1. I do not find having chickens as pets strange at all! As you know, I live in the country-ish as well and I have a dear friend Perry that had over 100! ( yummy fresh eggs we had all the time! ) but he just didn’t keep them for food or the eggs, he truly cherished his girls. Unfortunatly, he had to move and they were relocated but he has a some more where he is living now! : )
