Clear skies and full moon this morning, beautiful. Not as cold as we thought it would be as that cold wind has gone but had shut up the girls last night for the first time this year to keep them cosy. When I open them up they troop out one by one in the pecking order. Blue is always first at the top of the order and last is poor Paris. We only got Natasha, Helga and Paris in the autumn and Scabbers who was previously at the bottom of the pecking order took great delight in relinquishing that position and now takes every opportunity to put Paris in her place. Red the old girl is not one for early mornings and will stay inside while I clean them out talking to me all the time as I disturb her morning lie in.
