Lovely plan - except it hasn't stopped raining. The grass is long and too wet to mow and the water in the pool is far too cold to tempt anyone to dive in.
The ladies are not happy. Their pen is soggy and muddy and they're spending most of their time in the purple palace. They only came out because they saw me with the camera and thought I had food.
Not happy, not happy at all.
At least with it being so wet outside, I've had some time to do some Christmas decorating.
