The long backyard! (House sit # 2 : Bubbenhall)

To take this photo, I am down near the chooks’ yard. As you can see, even though the blocks that go with these homes are narrow, they are long!
I have walked kilometres, I’m sure, walking from the house, to the chooks, and back , several times each day! It’s very beautiful, though, green and leafy and two of the dogs love running up and down the length of it! (The other one walks more sedately! )
This house-sit is in a modest 2storey, semi-detached home, with a conservatory built on the back, then there’s a lovely outdoor seating area, then the long lawn, then the chook houses and vegetables patch , fenced off, right down the end. Behind this block (and all the adjoining ones) is a field, so one knows we’re in the country. A lovely spot for walking, through those fields, to the River Avon, around the village oval, and also through the village itself!

I have had the care of 3 dogs ( 2 pugs, Preston and Lily and a Pomeranian called Pablo)

Along with the dogs are 12 hens and 3 roosters, in 3 separate runs, also including Rosie, the pet hen, who has her own run and is locked up in the shed each night. Not everyone’s laying at the moment, but I collect between 2 and 5 eggs a day. 2 eggs have to be collected from underneath 2 broody hens!

Last of all, in the lounge room is the tank of (mostly) giant goldfish!

Bubbenhall is quite a different village from Bicknoller but still beautiful none-the-less! Here’s a few photos from my walks around.
