Chicks Hatched!

Filed under: House/Garden — chris @ 11:18 am

Last night we weren’t sure if some had hatched, the mammy bird certainly had ants in her pants but seemed to be sitting on the nest so we figured they must still be just eggs as she would squash chicks!

Anyway, this morning, we have 5 chicks and 3 eggs

Orienteering

Filed under: Days Out, Uncategorized — chris @ 11:14 am

Went orienteering in Donerail last night – part of orienteering.ie Summer Series, great fun.

Brought out competitive streak in Brigid who was in tears having hurt her leg until she saw next control in the distance, then was off running/hopping/wobbling away like the wind … talk about running it off.

Ellie in the meantime is wandering around looking for animal trails and hideouts where you could read your book with Brigid shouting “get ON with it!”

Anyway, Team Mahon did ok, in spite of Mammy cocking up the map-reading once

Great craic:)
