And here's what we made with them (rhubarb and yoghurt cake)!

|I think this might be a picture of Zella and Super Hans...|
|...but it could equally be the chicken with no name.|
This weekend my husband is building a fence to keep them out of the garden, since it turns out I really don't like feathers or flapping. With a phobia of butterflies you might have thought chickens would be a step too far, but it seems I don't always think things through.
One of them rewarded us with an egg this afternoon which was surprisingly freaky. I know eggs come from chickens, but to have come from one of our chickens is almost a step too far. Luckily the children are fighting over who gets to eat it. We have no idea who produced it (although my money is certainly on Super Hans) so we're not sure who gets to claim ownership.

...and inside is some beautiful wallpaper for what-is-now-Ruth's-but-will-become-Elsie's room. It's truly gorgeous wallpaper. I just hope I have more success at putting it up than my last attempt. And I hope it covers the strange lumps and bumps in the plaster in that room. Luckily my Dad will be here soon and I'm sure he'll be willing to lend a hand! Watch this space.
Oh, we did tell you about Elsie, didn't we? She's the newest arrival here at Twenty Four and the Door.

Actually a whole new doorway. The new playroom for the kids is getting closer... It's finally making good use of the tiny one room studio appartment that came with the house.
The other door to the playroom is already waiting to be revealed behind the wall of the current downstairs toilet. Knocking that down will be a more of a messy job...
