Chooks and Chick-a-dees


Nearby, Jorge the Rooster is still enamoured with his new hens… he still looks after and their every need (and his) always! The hens are still a tad nervous around him, and Brett has yet to sleep past 4am since he arrived… he is certainly NOT the “nice and quiet rooster” that we had been assured of when we took him on. We’ll see if he improves over time…





Speaking of chick-a-dees…. our dearest sisters from Stanmore, Vic and Susan, have made the leap of faith and secured a new home nearby. While they’d planned to house hunt while on a holiday up from Sydney — Nick and I had already found the “perfect place” and saved them the trouble of looking…


That allowed us to get to the more serious business of BBQs and bouzouki playing under the sunset — what fun! Brett had built the instrument with a luthier in Athens while on their last holiday there… its a multi-timber creation with an Ash, Walnut, and Ebony style woods worked into a fabulous instrument — best played with copious Ouzo!
