It has been Labour Day here in New Zealand, so for most people a long weekend. 
The weather has been great, we have enjoyed our weekend and a far bit of time in the garden.
We have had 2 new additions to the household this last week, Our Canaries have had 2 chicks.
They had laid 4 eggs but we found 2 broken on the bottom the cage. 
So I had to search the net on what to feed canary chicks, so I have hard boiled eggs and mixed them with grated carrots and have had to boil their seed.
The kids are loving watching them, it has been interesting watching them.
Hope you all had a great weekend, have a great week.
