What a special week it was!
We received 9 chickens as a “thankyou” from a friend and we found ourselves with quite inquisitive, nosy and messy “girls” picking and digging in our backyard, leaving free range eggs all over the place.  After leaving them few days to explore and rearrange the landscaping, it was time to put things back in order.

We spent few days putting together the chock coop, but what a beauty this is!  It looks like apartment on 5th Avenue!  Well, that’s what we are trying to convince the young hens, because initially they were not so sure they want to go in there.

And then came the end of the week with little preparations for our youngest daughter's birthday.  Amadea is big girl now – ready to go to preschool!

We love the cakes from Dolce Mia Pasticceria and the owner Daniela made us happy again.

Rainbow cake!  What a joy!  Daniela is a clever pastry chef  - she delicately flavoured every single layer according to the colour.  The red layer tastes like strawberry, the orange - orange, the yellow - lemon, green - peppermint, blue was vanilla and purple - blueberry.  Every bite was a burst of aroma and it feels really like you are eating the rainbow.

We had presents for the birthday girl – lots of new and pretty clothes for her first day at preschool.  However, with all the preparations and commotions around the chook's coop, Amadea got confused thinking the chook coop is actually the present for her birthday and new place to play with her sister.  It took us awhile to convince them at dusk that it is time to go in the house and let the chickens sleep.
Now it is time to get some rest and get ready for a very busy week ahead - school holiday is over and Amadea starts preschool.  Ah, time flies and my girls are growing fast!

How was your weekend?
Until my next post!
