The Urban Homestead

So, I am far too pregnant and whale-like at the moment to bother with a proper post, although I will mention that the garden is growing fairly well despite massive neglect. The chooks have been taking turns going broody and moulting, so we are only getting one egg every day or two but hopefully this will pick up soon. Bubs is due in 3 weeks and I am eagerly awaiting her birth if only so I can pass her big boofheaded self over to her father while I..I dunno. Touch my toes, or sleep on my stomach or do one of those other things I haven't been able to do for ages now!

Anyway, the point of today's post is just a little bit of activism, to protest the absolute ridiculousness of the Dervaes family being, well, idiots. All respect for them is now completely gone! See Sonya's blog at for more information.

Hi there Em, I think I must be loosing my marbles......I am SURE I wrote a little comment last night saying I do hope all goes well with getting that big melon out of you and all. Remember - they can make you do it but they can;t make you do it with dignity.

How crazy is the urban homestead thing - so sad. Better trademark itty bitty homestead just in case.

love Duckie xxxxx

Eh, Marbles are overrated anyway ;)

Thanks, I am sure all will go fine. I just want it to hurry up and happen! I am so very uncomfortable!

And yep, totally crazy. I mean, what is next, trade marking 'family farm' etc???
