Yes, it’s true My Life is Awesome. Mainly because the septic tank is not playing up…yet.  So I’ve time to put the activator in the tank and let the good bugs do their thang.   The council wants to bring in compulsory pump outs for rural properties on a regular basis.  If people use activators […]

Poor Delilah is gone.

Before I’ve even had time to get some decent photos, and do a blog post about our new Ex Battery Hens, poor Delilah is gone. She was a funny little bird.  Very tufty.  Very loud, and very stressed.  All the other chooks picked on her.  Mostly they would peck at her if she came near […]
